New Dome - 3D holo eye - internals 1.0

There's one thing that ALL R2 builders fear is having their Holo Eye's twisted around and around!
This apart from being annoying, after all the time and money put into our builds, but there's always that 'has any damage been done to the servo linkages inside the dome!' feeling for the rest of the event. 

This was something I've read up about over the years. Usually a quick, dome rotation 'frees' the finger twister lol.

So I had an idea to allow the holo eye to be twisted, without worry of either the servo linkages or the holo LED's wire being twisted.

This was my first idea, drawn up in Inventor CAD.


This is still a work in progress as I carry on building the rest of the new dome.
