Thread: My Advanced Realistic Humanoid Robot Project

    My Advanced Realistic Humanoid Robot Project

    The Project Goal

    I'm planning to build an advanced humanoid robot. Think Ex Machina, The Terminator, Data from Star Trek, etc. I decided to avoid teasing by NOT making it a girl. I'd never live that down. If it was a child, I'd be called a pedo. So that leaves male... So just like Data on Star Trek's creator created Data to look just like him, I'm making mine a mirror image of myself! I want the robot to ultimately move like a human, be able to walk, run, jump, do chores, dance, do sports, have conversations realistically, paint, do sculpture, etc. Hope you enjoy following me on my EPIC journey


    About Me

    I'm Gary from Undisclosed, US. I have a background in computer programming as well as a lot of trades (electrical, mechanical, construction, etc). I also am an artist - sculptor, painter. I consider myself an inventor and an innovator. My current inspiration is Elon Musk.


    Robot Features Planned

    I plan to start out sculpting the left arm and hand, rigging them up with servo motors, connecting that up to a pc, and getting it to grasp. From there I will develop the torso, the scull, the legs, the feet, and the other arm. The bot will have silicone skin and look realistic and move realistic. It will have artificial lungs for cooling. It will have spandex ligaments and pulley systems to imitate muscles. It will have sensors to feel if it bumps into things and it will have webcam eyes. It will have a speaker in the mouth to speak with and the mouth will move to lipsync what it is saying. It will have facial expressions. It will have advanced artificial intelligence. It will run on battery and/or power cable depending on the situation.

    Interesting! How do you plan to actuate all the bits? Are you planning for it to walk on legs?

    I plan to actuate it with servos pulling on string connected at the joints to simulate muscles. The servos will be placed in areas where muscles or organs would normally be. Also, yes, it will walk on legs.

    How much will the full skeleton weigh?
    Have you calculated how much torque/speed you need in the servos for standing/walking?

    The full skeleton will weigh probably under 2lb. I'm using lightweight epoxy hollow bone construction all handmade. I have calculated some estimates of the torque/speed of the servos for standing/walking but experimentation will be the only way to know for sure I think...

    That's unbelievably light! I look forward to seeing the progress of this project.

    Making the arms exoskeleton using double stick tape then upholstery thread then super glue to hold it firm followed by some epoxy.
