AIA: Miniature Motors Bring Realism to Doll
Baby Bright Eyes is manufactured by Playmates Toys Inc.(Costa Mesa, CA) and was previewed this year at the centennial American International Toy Fair in New York. The company sought to bring realism to its doll by enabling the doll's eyes to open, blink, look around and close in response to activity.
To accomplish this goal, the company uses miniature motors from NanoMuscle (Antioch, CA).
NanoMuscle's motors are small, light and completely silent, allowing for a new range of realistic features and motion for toys and robotics.
NanoMuscle was involved in the design and engineering of the doll. The company also worked with Playmate Toys and Judy Shackelford, the doll's creator.
