Humanoid Robot Meets 3D Printer- InMoov 1

[hairygael] created a very realistic and awesome humanoid robot, the “InMoov”. This humanoid robot are built using 3D printing. This demonstration shows you how the hand and the face are made and animated to mimic a real human.

The Humanoid Robot Animation

Cables or fishing rods might be added in order to control it, but it was not the purpose of this work at first. The author wants to do it with computer control eventually.

It has evolved quite a bit since the project started with designing the hand. Both arms are now functional with a torso and a head. Two Arduino boards are used to controll through MRL.

With the help of Myrobotlab and GroG, they will try to add ability to see and do things following voice commands.

The Ear

These ears are for the look, they actually don’t really have a function yet. They were initially designed to act like a circus in which the microphone was inserted, but the servos are making a lot of noise and a solution is due to be found for to get these ears to listen well.
