Not the greatest video, bu it covers all the bases of the components inside and out of Oszlar.
I started a blog post all about Oszlar on my blog page

Reminds me of Zoltar speaks from the movie Big (Tom hanks) looks like it took a lot of time and effort.

That's really awesome! I need to figure out how you programmed all of that into the computer so that I could come up with something like that in the future.

Thanks for the link on the globe, I'm doing a Madam Leota prop and I needed something just like that.

Globe was from . Good prices on lots of thing we all can use :) not limited to electrical. They have plumbing, building, applicance parts .... all at quite reasonalble prices. The globe ran me like $32 elsewhere it was $15+ above that.

The Crystal ball is actually an Acrylic light fixture shade (for outside art deco style post lamps) it is ~16" in diameter. There is a piece of frosted velum (drafting film) instde it. The projection is from under Oszlars beard. The original Idea was from Christopher Silvia's Chris's Crypt Site
I thought the crystal ball was just the thing to make a variation on the old theme ...

Is the crystal ball a light fixture for a ceiling fan?

that is sweet-reminds me of the haunted mirror-but in a crystal ball-very well done

I take back everything I said. You sir, are a prop building manimal. When are we having beers?

I suppose I could also do full servo control and make Oslar himself animated, because I can controll it all :)

I had considered a prop controlder, but there were a couple of things that I wanted to accomplish.
1.) the feel of an old electro mechanical box, nothing like the clickety clacking as it goes along.
2.) I have yet to see a cheap (if any) prop controler that can do video clips (thus the PC)
I figured with a PC/Linux box inside I could do just about anything I wanted. It is networked, so I can remotely do things and make adjustments to the timing, Includig what video and or set of videos to project (stored locally on the pc hdd) upload new ones etc... the control program is written in PERL so I can control all the hardware ( and change it if needed) relays, timing video, and all the I/O you could ever need (the change schute is actually on the printer port ).
