Designing a DIY "Head" for your 15/17 DOF Servo Robot

There are many robot kits on eBay.  They all lack a "head".  So to get ahead you need to make your own.  I used a "Make your own Christmas tree Ornament".  They sell these 2.5 inch diameter clear plastic balls that you can use to make Christmas tree ornaments.  They can also make a head for your robot. Here is a picture of a robot without a head, just a servo motor.

He looks better with the clear ball over the servo.


You can also paint it and add a circuit board with some LED's for eyes and a mouth like in this picture.

Here is another DIY robot head this time it is made out of a 3.2 inch Christmas tree bulb.
