Iggy is TeamDARE’s new band member: a blue and hairy mechatronic puppet.

Iggy was a puppeteering puppet from Lunas puppets, already prepared to perform facial expressions. He was added to the band to entertain the audience in-between songs and to increase the overall cuteness factor. Obviously, puppeteering is not TeamDARES core expertise and therefore arm and neck movements as well as facial expressions of Iggy have been robotized.

Each arm has five degrees of freedom. The neck can move back and forth, and rotate from left to right. The eyes can move up and down, and turn from left to right. The mouth can open and close. Ears and eyebrows can move up and down to give Iggy cute facial expressions.
