JD is a fully functional humanoid robot built with EZ-Bits. His body shape is designed to resemble a human. A humanoid design is functional for many purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion, or for other purposes. This humanoid boasts 16 degrees of freedom with his 16 Heavy Duty Servos!
JD has a torso, a head, two arms, and two legs. The head of this robot contains a camera for vision tracking modes, including color, motion, glyphs, QR codes and faces. Each eye has 9 RGB LED's, which can be programmed for a variety of expressions. The included EZ-Builder Software makes it easy to create animations to customize movements.
Walks Right Away
JD includes apps that allows him to walk, right away. The EZ-Builder Software includes an amazing GAIT feature called Auto Positioner. This allows you to create frames and actions to animate the servo positions. The actions can be linked to any other control, such as Speech Recognition, Vision Tracking, Joysticks, Wii Controllers, and more.
Education and Home
In the classroom or at home, EZ-Robot revolution has a big impact on education. Not only do students learn about robotics, they have fun doing it. With hundreds of tutorial videos, there are no questions left unanswered. The EZ-Robot community forum is busy with members helping to solve problems and invent new ideas. Personalizing EZ-Robot behaviours and actions teach students how robots walk, see, hear and interact with their surroundings. EZ-Robot Revolution has the same effect on the classroom as the Personal Computer did in 1985.
With the growing field of robotics, students using EZ-Robot today will be prepared for a future in the upcoming industry.
Heavy Duty Servos
Includes digital heavy duty 15 kg/cm servo motors! The metal internals will withstand a high load.
- Operating speed: 0.24sec/60degree (7.4V)
- Stall torque: 15.0kg-cm/529 oz-in.(7.4V)
- Temperature Range: -20C to +60C
- Operating Voltage: 4.8V to 7.2V
- 3 pole ferrite
- Dual ball bearing
- All metal gears
- connector wire length: 32cm
- Futaba 3f (25 teeth) for driving spline/shaft
- 6.2mm spline (including teeth)
The secret to EZ-Robot is our EZ-Builder Software which includes hundreds of controls to add custom functionality to your robot. The Auto Position Control in EZ-Builder is used to rotate servos into custom positions (Frames). These Frames are linked to Actions to create animation scripts. The software will automatically calculate how to move servo positions between Frames for a stable transition. Like all EZ-Builder controls, this is another innovation by DJ Sures to help you build impressive robotics! The Auto Positioner can be used for Hexpods and Bipeds - or anything you can dream up!
EZ-B v4 Wi-Fi Robot Controller
The EZ-B v4 is the World's most powerful robot controller... It's a brain for your robot. The EZ-B v4 scales for beginner and advanced users. The EZ-B is two PCB's sandwiched together in a compact 2x2 inch package. For protection, the speaker and electronics are enclosed within a stylish white plastic shell with a speaker chamber for clear enhanced audio. For advanced users, the EZ-B may be removed from its casing and mounted directly in your custom robot.

If hardware is the heart of your EZ-Robot, then software is the soul. Introducing EZ-Builder Robot Control Software. Your robot is controlled by the World's most powerful and scalable robot control software. EZ-Builder takes a productive and unique approach to programming your robot, EZ-Builder uses graphical controls which represent features and functions. Simply add new controls to your robot and enable behaviors such as Camera Tracking, Speech Recognition, Wii Controller, Joystick, GPS, Accelerometer, HTTP Server, GAIT Positioning, and hundreds more!
JD's compact grippers are useful for picking up and holding objects. Powered by strong metal geared servos, these grippers also include a tension mechanism to save servo life.
This robot can walk with the default included software. Use the included software to modify the default movement animations.
The eyes of this robot have 18 LEDs (9 per eye). Each LED can be configured up to 1 million color combinations. The head contains a camera which can track colors, faces, motion, glyphs and more.
