The Project Goal

I'm planning to build an advanced humanoid robot. Think Ex Machina, The Terminator, Data from Star Trek, etc... 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 Larry. 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.

Here's my latest addition to the robot. A mesh capture of my head and arm to aid in sculpting its skull and defining the mass of the build volume.

Oh, cool. This is a good project. :D This palm looks very very awful. :twisted: . In the dark at night, It can create a mysterious situation.

Custom 2s 18650 battery temporary setup with 3D printed battery holders and charger boards for each battery wired in and working
Image

Size 140 brushed dc motor with pulley output shaft and l9110s hbridge controller wired up on sop-8 breakout board with wires tag labeled. Motor wrapped in football jersey coated in non skid rug backing and sewn onto forearm that is wrapped in 1000 denier cloth adhered with adhesive transfer tape. Football jersey offers breathability for heat dissipation. Output pulleys 3D printed in PLA and super glued onto output shaft. Muscle string is 100% nylon upholstery thread glued onto output shaft with super glue.
Image


Rear view of battery holder setup
Image

0.3mm id Teflon tubing attached to index finger to act as guide tube for index finger muscle string. Serves same principle function as rubber hose that guides bike brake wire.
Image

Ceiling mounted rail setup so I can descend robot arm onto work area and adjust height and position so that both of my hands are free to do the intricate work on it.
Image


Compact pulley system design to “downgear” brushed dc motor pulley muscle string output to lower speed and increase torque to desired levels.

Robot blueprint leg detail motor and muscle string placements and spacing
Image

Robot shoulder blueprint detail with muscles labeled
Image

Robot neck design which has tubing for breathing and drinking icewater for cooling systems
Image

Robot blueprint midsection detail with batteries in black, a semi transparent main pc behind them, and the artificial lungs and heart behind that for cooling system
