I think making it simulate sign language would be pretty cool! Or (this may be hard) make it take notes for lessons in real time like some online math video - somehow extract the white board info and translate it to the hand writing/drawing out the math. !  8)

thats really cool.

my friend likes the colour alot because he has treble and bass cleff tattoos in the same shade of purple.  LOL. :)

What are your future plans for this body - or brain youve got?

Thanks! It's actually mostly blue, it might not show well in the video.

The brain is currently the PC for testing, but the Raspberry Pi is onboard and can run the same code. It will probably stay like this until I need a more powerful one to run a 3D sensor (maybe like this: https://www.stemmer-imaging.co.uk/en/products/series/intel-realsense-d400/).

The actuators/sensors are controlled by an OpenCM, which is basically a Arduino-based board (with expansion) from Robotis, with libraries and hardware to support a range of their motors.

thats great, thanks for posting.

its funny that there is a time delay on your robo hand, i wonder whats causing this to happen?

Made an important adjustment to stop more self collisions and it fattened the legs alot,  not sure what i think of it now.
the joint is so bloody complicated,   how did it get to this!?!?!?

Also, my friend gave me an idea,  put it together with plastic plumbers pipe and plastic weld it together,    I saw this guy make a mannequin using it and probably might be a good alternative.

I have created a hand similar to his, however, I am currently on the stage of getting the string system to work with the servos. Do you guys know where exactly to anchor the strings on the fingers to get the hand to contract/open?

Thanks :)

Hey artyrobot1! Just came across your project and thought it is very cool! How is shaping up in 2018?

Heres my new design for my quad spider.  the cylinders coming out of his joints are electric motors.
Im having self collision problems, but this one is better than the last one.
I should be able to roll the whole thing, except the perpendicular connections i was thinking to get started i could just lash them like a boy scout! :)
