Choosing Your Hardware
The most simple and practical way to start is to use a servo controller. Servo controllers connect to your computer with a USB cord and tell each servo when to move and how far to move.
One of the smaller servo controller boards is the Micro Maestro 6-Channel which is about $15-20 and controls up to 6 servos at a time.
Choosing Your Software
When you’re ready to start creating movement, you’re going to need some software to communicate with the servo controller. Something to create and play back servo motion data is required, and we recommend using Visual Show Automation to start. While more advanced options exist, this program is the most simple and least expensive.
