Shopping for vision

I would like to make a rooster that has a head that can turn to look at you. I’m looking for lots of ideas on how to do this as I like this sort of interaction.

Obviously a motion detector is probably enough. Perhaps more than one so that we can get a take on the actual location of the person.

A more generalized solution might be to look at an arduino, a camera and processing.

Here’s a cool one I got from MIcheal of http://krazatchu.ca/.

Here’s one I found in google:
