New Bot Shown On Two And A Half Men

 
#1

A cool looking robot was shown during the final two and a half men show tonight. It would really be a great platform for the new EZB(4).

Robot-Doc,
That is too funny, I just tried searching for this robot after my wife told me it was on TV.
I did not get to see its movements.
I could not find it till I looked on EZ Robot!

#3

It's movements weren't that great. Walking was rolling on wheels. To be honest I've seen much better bots on here by "beginners".

#4

Some shots for inspiration etc.

Lol, it's mouth looks like it was made for the "adult" industry.

It's sad to see robots like that - specifically without many identifiable use. The trouble with using boring and ugly robots in media is it programs people to think that's what robots are. We're an exceptional company doing a great deal more than everyone else!

What a terrible looking robot lol

Wouldn't you rather see one of these EZ-Robots?

The body looks ok...but the head design is crapola.
But I guess they were trying to make something funny looking?

It looks like the work of this guy

There must have been a short time period to get this out the door and on the studio floor. Idk. I think my expectations for a highly rated sitcom may be too high. For a DIY project, it isnt too bad. He should've consulted with us first. Winky

Wow , that little dude looks like a rushed science project. Lol its probably just a plug and play rc Rx too. I was eyeballing the frame wondering how anything could move besides the wheels on the base. I would have been more excited to see topo with a Microsoft Sam voice lol.

If it was a individual I would rush to his ( or her) aid in making a better robot body. Smile

I will say the only cool part was the el wire in the body and the pulsing el wire in the neck. the rest was a glorified erector set.

Being in the industry I'll chime in here. Yes usually gags like this in a sit com have very little money and even less time to build. Usually a week or less. A lot of these things end up being a mashup of things a shop might have from a previous commercial, etc ,etc. Usually these are animatronics, not a real robot. That is, there are puppeteers running all the parts off camera by remote control, voice etc.

That said I agree with DJ on the point about boring robots. Changes in that opinion are coming in the next few months. Stay tuned.
