My first attempt at driving Noodle's silicone tongue involved a mini Servo and a 3D printed rack and pinion... the rack was meant to press down linearly on the spring loaded tongue mechanism and make it poke out the bottom of the foot.

Long story short... Where the rack and pinion itself was more or less successful, the assembly holding it in place was not... the springs had a bit too much resistance. There was also some binding going on inside where all the movement was taking place... so, not the best option, me thinks.

If you have thoughts or suggestions, feel free to post them in the comments! I appreciate advice!
