Teddy Ruxpin Robot Version 1

 
#1

I added a new robot today. It is a Teddy Ruxpin, if you remember him? He was a talking toy from the 1980's that used a tape player. His mouth and eyes were animated with a single motor. It wasn't a very intellegent toy...

So that's where the EZ-B came to play Smile .. So I emptied the guts and replaced the internals with servos and the eZ-B. I used the EZ-Builder software to control it. I wrote a bunch of scripts that animate the robot.

Awesome! Teddy has never been more cool!

Awesome! I have plans to do this with my Teddy Ruxpin one day... I hope that maybe you can make him walk? I've heard you had plans to do that, somewhere... If that's true, I'll wait until the day you do! I really want to make my Teddy Ruxpin someday!

i would love to do this with a bear from 1.50 meter.

Making Teddy walk shouldn't be too difficult, just stick a JD inside Grin

We did make a teddy bear walk by wrapping the fur around a JD Humanoid like Jeremie had said. There's a video of it somewhere, titled Hexapod and bear dancing? Something like that... I'm on my phone so it's hard to search for it at the moment Smile

Here's a photo of the bear. It's sitting beside me in my lab at home.
