If you always wanted to do a magic animatronic similar to what Sean Bougnia and others have done commercialy you can give it a shot by using one of these circuit boards that allows you to control up to 4 servos simultaneosly with up to 3 minutes of movement.

From the sizes of the components, it appears to be about 5"x6", give or take.

It looks like a good buy and inexpensive too.Anyone tried it? I wonder if it can be used with robotic servos? The add says it can't be used with analog and digital servos,so what other servos are there?

"The unit will handle 4 servo simultaneously and WILL work with analog or digital servos."

This company is also a great solution for animatronic control. This is what many of the large companies such as Disney use.
