I'm trying to make a mind controlled tentacle and this is where I'm at so far.
Right now, the ball and socket joints are a little too loose, and the movement isn't very good (partly due to the weight of the parts).
Also the sockets are a little stiff and fragile when printed with PLA
Once all that is sorted, I'll hook it up to some servos and the obligatory Arduino.

Print one end and as many segments as you want. Break off the supports on the segments. String some cord through the holes. You need a minimum of 3.
