In addition to a laser cutting machine you will need access to a 3D printer to create some of the parts. Further, a couple custom wires will be needed to connect servos to necessary eye pieces. Finally, you'll need to order/purchase micro and regular servos, an Arduino UNO and Arduino PWM pin shield if you don't already have those.
Should you be missing or not have access to any of those individual parts you can also purchase them in our online store and create the rest yourself.
Please note that while we are releasing all the cut and design files for Fritz, we don't have any intent on providing detailed documentation around those. We expect that you already know how to use your own laser or 3D printer. If you don't know or have never heard of an STL or Corel Draw file you may want to think twice.
In terms of time commitment, we are unsure how long it takes to actually built a Fritz from scratch. The following is a rough estimate:
ENGINEERING.com Fritz .. achieves an excellent interpretation of human facial expressions using only 13 motions.
Engadget XYZbot's Fritz offers a cheaper robot head, free trips to the uncanny valley.
the Slanted Fritz is an amazing robotic puppet that needs your support, and your creativity
Fritz was also mentioned on The Huffington Post.
