Very Great,, and inspiring.
From your point of view, how intensive and complex is it to learn the kind of code making to the Arduino card doing as you want?
I do know a little about for primer by the way.

Peter, I just re-read through some of the comments and realized I never really answered your question. The hardware setup is pretty basic. It's probably obvious that I'm using an Arduino microcontroller. The pan/tilt servo setup is a kit from Lynx motion. I found a cheaper one of these through Trossen Robotics though so you may try to buy one there. The only other thing you need are the jumper cables and the breadboard. I hope this helps.

That is some serious attention to detail ;) It's actually a Logitech mouse I bought years ago. Not sure if it's still available or not, but it is the most comfortable one I've been able to find.

this is random but what kind of mouse do you use. looks comfortable.

Amazing work! and potentially useful applications can be imagined here...
Thanks for sharing

I like this :) Stick a laser cutter on the end and you have yourself the start of a CNC cutter... Design, parametrise, build your model and 3D print it, all using one plugin ;)

Tight...super tight...
