Robot to solve math problems through the memory of the specialized references in the field of mathematics and artificial intelligence and has the ability to read pdf and convert them to a written writing understandable to him

mohamed saber

a robot that can tell what it sees: I want the robot to drive to an object, snap object's picture, send the pic to a nearby machine (CPU offloading), where the machine predicts the name of the object depicted in the pic via its SAE-DNN model, synthesize the voice file for the predicted name, send the voice file to the robot, where the robot broadcasts the voice via its speaker.

Button my shirt, serve me food from plate to mouth, to assist with loss of function due to Parkinson’s disease.

Marko Polo

I'd really like a robot to handle laundry. That would probably be quite a difficult job because it has to recognize how it's holding and folding clothing, but it would sense little more than fabric.

Krost

I think of making a robot which is capable of guarding houses. It should fitted with all sensor and the camera quality which is fitted should be better for example if the owner us not in house the robot will take the charge and guard the house. It should give a buzzer if something strange happened. It should be small in size and smartphone controlled and capable of attack in one go to protect the house. Voice command and auto mode should be there. Battery should lasts longer. Fast charge options. If you have any further ideas tell me.

Akram

you can put solar panels to charge the LiPO 7.4 V Battery instead of LiPO Battery Balancer Charger.

Virtual Robots

I am a teacher of the visually impaired. A challenge for many students is being able to see and access distance learning media such as notes written or projected on the board, videos projected on the board. Teacher/ student presentations/ demonstrations in front of the room. There are devices with positional limitations that can be placed on the student’s desk to view distance media, but this requires the student to sit in a location without any obstructions between themselves and the board or person they need to see. I would like to develop a robot that could hold a mounted camera with a zoom lens that can be remotely operated (Sony makes several designed to give telephoto capabilities of up to 30x for use with phones or tablets). The robot could be positioned by the student by using the on board camera to move to the desired location for viewing . The arms, or zoom camera mounting on the robot would be adjusted to aim / follow ( with the robotic controller) to view what ever learning activity that the student needs to participate in. This allows the student to sit in any location they desire with their peers and not be isolated, having to sit in a location that best accommodates their viewing needs. This type of technology could be a valuable tool from elementary school through college. It could also be applied to the business world. I an unaware of any device of this type that is available today. Ron

I want to build a robot for the home that can play music, carry drinks, be a security guard and even go up and down the stairs. I also want to be able to control it from anywhere through WIFI. It needs to be tracked and stable. I have lots of designs and ideas written down out.

I would like to make my tomy omnibot 2000 autonomous. Can you please givd me an idea of how much it would cost ? Thank you . Tony

Tony jockey

I'm 10 and I really want to build a robot to help me clean my room! I have a lot of stuffed animals, maybe I can teach it to sort them by color or size.

Abby

A robot based not only on hardware functionality and trouble shooting but complex software functionality and troubleshooting of large and complex network and digital voice communications systems. These robots would be placed at all remote communications points with the ability to communicate with each other either through the network or if the network is down communications through the robotics could be accomplished with RF communications. This "long range" RF communications system would need to have access to basic RF base station functionality that is already being accomplished on several other projects. The robots would automatically detect any issues via SNMP traps therefore isolating the defective component and either alerting the need for human assistance or replace the component, program with the proper configuration and fully test the repair upon completion.

K-Wyhatt

I want to add 3 ultrasonic distance sensor in Six. Using these, I will mimic emotions of shyness, fear and aggression. For example if someone is at a distance of around 20 inches, it will wave towards that direction, if something comes closer than 10 inches, Six will start moving away, if something comes closer than 5 inches, it will curl its legs closest to the body.

One of the robots I am working on is a fully 3D printed open source robot that I will share online with all the code, STL files, a list of parts and instructions on how to assemble. At first I wasn't planning on using an EZ-B for this, because I didn't think of it, but it is the perfect controller for this project.

cubco

Quisiera construir y diseñar un robot que sea capas de tener un modo imitación con reconocimiento de voz y facial, ademas podrá hablar por medio del modulo de robot EZ y tendrá detalles tales como poder elevarse como si fuese un dron, tener un modo robot móvil que le permita desplazare en superficies planas a alta velocidad y ademas que este levantar el doble de peso que pudiera levantar una persona o almenos un robot de su tipo claro sin que este deje de ser un humanoide, esto con finalidad de enseñarle a través de comandos, módulos bluethooth y wifi que debe de hacer y así mismo programarse para poder desarrollarse en las diferentes situaciones en las que se encuentre.

Leon1999

I use robotics to teach physicians new or esoteric concepts in medicine. Most recently I built twelve robotic r/c based that displayed one of three types of images (bronchoscope, CT, or EBUS- TBNA). The docs had to drive their robot to the corresponding lung cancer node printed on a 30 x 30 ft carpet square. I want to build an interactive display for training docs. I want to use the ez-robotic platform to do it. It would be a self-contained kiosk focusing on one of several procedural tasks, and they will have a robotic "coach" to guide them through this hands-on interactive Virtual Simulation Tour. It will be a little "corny" and "cheeky"... but will encourage the docs to do a potentialy difficult procedure, with a guide, that will have immediate impact on their clinical practice and their patients.

Indepthdude

My robot would be a willing test subject for my students' ideas. It could be anything and I want to see what they will create.

Mrs. Rempel

I would like to build upon the SIX platform by first adding another DOF to each leg then add leads running From the battery to a set of "ports" on each side of camera and with color recognition capabilities have six find his way to a custom charging port (color coded of course) when he gets low on power to charge himself up autonomously. Also add an arm with gripper and teach him to pick and place certain colors into certain containers. This maybe a bit ambitious for my skill level but I love robotics and I want to learn this and teach my own creation to do these things! Just being able to afford the parts needed to build him! That's the first big challenge in this build! Haha thank you!

legren

I’m currently working on a personable, interactive robot with a high degree of autonomy and personality. I have a finalized design and I’m hoping to utilize the EZ-B v4/2 Developer Kit to bring it to life. Once I have built the robot I plan to expand by adding many sensors with the hope of achieving maximum autonomy. Currently I’m still trying to figure out a way to add a camera so that a homeowner could keep tabs while away.

Geotpm

My robot won't change the world or help humanity, he's simply a robotic Gremlin. I've designed a Gremlin model that utilizes the EZ-B v4/2 Developer Kit to bring him to life. My Gremlin is 3d modeled and sliced into pieces that can be 3D printed. I've already purchased the developer kit and 3d printed 75% of the pieces (He's assembled , only missing the arms) I've utilized EVERYTHING from the kit except the wheels (they were too large to incorporate into his feet) I need 8 more servos to finish designing and printing his arms& hands. I know it seems strange, but I've wanted a Gremlin ever since the movie and when I heard about the ez robot system I figured I could finally have a Gremlin that I could interact with,even though I am a novice in robotics and not really a computer person. I hope I'll be able to get this work.

Atarka

I'm creating an InMoov robot named Dimitri for the college I am attending! He'll have face-tracking, object recognition, will be able to move his head and arms like a human can. He will also be able to move his jaw and speak through the EZ robot module.

For the Wish-List...I searched for "emoji for ez-robot" and found little to nothing on that subject. B&W, or Color, for that matter, are not that complicated and are, relatively, inexpensive. I don't believe a mouth is needed since a lot of emotion can be displayed with the dot (look left, right, up, down, cross-eyed, blink inquisitively) , a circle (surprise), a caret (the small up-facing arrow on the "6" key), and the two math signs (< and >). The LED's on the existing 18 RGB LED Block aren't laid out quite advantageously enough to pass for what I was hoping to find. The proposed RGB 8x8 Display color-array may have that same issue. A TTL-LCD unit, sized to display both eyes and fit into the existing LED-Block container would be really cool. I expect an LCD display long enough to display both eyes would have an inefficient cost since most of the crystal would never be employed, so, smaller elements, one for each of JD's eye sockets, fitted to a single PCB sized to fit into JD's head-space would be most efficient. It would take a short jumper strap to connect two LCD together (or print it on the board) but the serial code can be demuxed on the board or send parallel with a ribbon. I'm thinking of the imoji expressions used in the film "MOON"...a wonderful depiction of AI emotions, by the way. To that end, I'd like to see color, for sure...Again, I don't believe the mouth is required to express simple emotions. To make coding simpler, a small library of feelings/expressions similar to those used in the COJI would work and they can be on the PCB in a PIC chip. Three wires could enable four library-labels, and four wires could display nine. Your EZ-software looks so advanced, you'd probably do 16 or 32-expressions without a flinch (add that one too, a flinch). Lastly, if the display was round and fit into JD's eye socket, rather than behind the PVC, that'd be most-cool. I'd gladly pay $40 for the pair of elements and the R&D to put'em on my BOT. Thanx.

I have created a smart farmer robot. It can farm the field by best suited seeds. It can sow seeds, water them and also cultivate them. Apart from this it is eco friendly. I named it FarmistoBot.

AyushR5

Estou desenvolvendo um projeto de animatronic educacional, onde se basei em um animal de pelúcia capaz de andar e se comunicar de forma passional com crianças e as estimulando ao exercício e pratica em contagem de números, e algumas frases do dia á dia, literalmente tudo pré programado com uma caixa de dialogo onde frases se encaixam de acordo com a resposta no sistema, gerando dialogo entre maquina e criança mas sem acabar com sua pureza. Literalmente o meu projeto toma como base em urso de pelúcia chamado Teddy Ruxpin, em que cantava uma musica em seu TAPE e movimentava boca e olhos, e isso me deixava curioso e assim resolvi pesquisar a fundo e estou agora depois de muito tempo recomeçando o meu projeto novamente.

carlosdouglasaa

My son (5 years old) is building a "robot" with recycled material, like toilet paper tube, popsicle sticks, used sheets of paper, boxes, bottles, etc., and one of this days he cames to me and ask when I will be adding the cables for the robot to move by itself... ??. So, I'm thinking in adding some basics movements to his robot, like moving one arm just up and down, adding wheels, and so on. Now i'm wondering what will he be asking when he is around 10 ??

I would like JD to assist in ordering food by connecting him to our current online food store! "-Jd, put milk on our next order" Also keep track of the familiy calender & guard the house would be cool features.

Pekit

I'm working on a Weebo personal assistant at the moment. She has been a life saver while I worked as an in-home caretaker for the elderly! She keeps track of my appointments, alarms, daily reminders, pill times, gives me the time on request, makes skype calls when asked, takes pictures, takes videos, watches the house while I'm gone, and more! She is powered by the EZBv4 solely, (No Alexa integration or anything like that) and we're constantly improving. I'd like to see the project able to update my schedule by spoken prompt soon, as opposed to the clunkier manual schedule update I have every Friday. But hey, with Weebo reminding me, at least I'll never forget to update it! All powered by EZB

CohesiveCrawdad

Where can I get a robot that can drive my car? This robot should only need to be told where do I have to get!!! This robot should be able to: - prevent accidents, - take me to where I need to get, - stay in charge of my car, while I am busy. - drive a car or a truck filled with things to be taken to a customer of my business. Thank you, Raul R. Legaspi

Peto

Make a pet robot that can substitute for a real pet- thinking of JD may be an ideal candidate. Pair JD up with AI so that he can respond to you. Responses would be more that something that you can code up. Find if external AI engines can be hooked up to JD's brain so that he can give responses and take action. Kind of like Siri or Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa.

cdan1142

I am trying to build a fully functioning robot that looks like a teddy bear like in the movie "AI" with Haley Joel Osmond. I currently am working on this project using a raspberry pi and and an arduino uno. I am on the part where I need the bear to respond to my sound. but I'm not sure how to translate the sound signal coming out of the raspberry pi in order to get the arduino to move the servos. I stumbled upon your JD robot and thought hey I could use my bears fuzzy fur and dress it on to JD and use the prebuilt software and hardware you guys provide with JD as the skeleton for the bear.

I would like to make a drone robot that can do tasks while on the air. It can be ordered iyems and bring them at your disposal

Masamo

Hi im ben also known as el diablo on the streets i thought of an idea that i wish would come true for someone who might be disabled and cant walk and struggles to get around so i thought how about a robot that has hands legs arms feet a face and that so it could cook for someone who cant cook or cant be able to cook because they are disabled and it could go to the shops like morrisons asda primak ect stuff like that and it could bring you something it could maybe work for you if you cant go to your job or school one day because you where sick or really injured and to drive you around to walk up and down stairs thats one of my ideas i have another idea aswell like what if you could make a robot that works for the police so then the police humans dont die and can stop terrorists so it can go on the field for us humans and then it will be unstoppable no matter what the bad guys wouldnt get away and then two humans can go aswell and take cover behind the robots so they cant get shot or stabbed and then there will be no crimes because people will be scared and wont dare try and blow things up and kill people or steal from a bank the same for the army aswell its like have you ever watched chappie the movie its exactly like that and if we had these two robots then we would be able to help humanity and save a lot of peoples lives and they can talk and communicate with people and can feel feelings so they are like a human but better and more safer and not dangerous at all unless its stopping bad people then its dangerous

El diablo

I have a few robot ideas I would love to make come true. My first one is a solar powered flying creature you can interact with like a pet but is also speaker. He/she flies plays music and can be controlled by your gestures or voice, or the egg can be the speaker and when the dragon sleeps the energy its collected from the sun can e used to charge the speaker. It would be made from recycled plastic. My next idea would be a drone creature that can hover in the air and hold your cell phone so that the Deaf community (and everyone else) can sign to their loved ones threw video chat without the restrictions of wires. I am currently trying to build a small solar powered rc blue tooth speaker dragon that actually flies and tucks its wings when it lands, I can put it around my neck and plug ear buds into it (one ear bud from its tail the other its mouth so it looks like its telling me a secret) The last one in my brain is the have a small drone (fantasy for kids and professional for adults) that can be used as a American Sign Language translator. When the ASL user signs to the drone it will interpret what is being signed into spoken English. I believe that the last one will open up communication and more jobs for ASL users, it will also save lives alot of Deaf people die or other negative things happen simply from lack of communication.

Hello DJ, I am currently building a full size animatronic C-3PO. He has a 3 axis neck gimble (3 servos), two arms that raise up and down (2 geared servos) and a 2 axis waist gimble to allow him to lean forward/back and side to side (2 motor controllers driving 2 linear actuators). He will be stationary on the ground, but am hoping to have the ability to control him via remote, trigger audio sounds, and move all of those articulations. I might also consider adding a camera to his head for a little face tracking. Do you feel that your EZ-robot system could help me control him easier than building something custom out of Arduinos? Appreciate your thoughts. Jamie McShan

A robot that bridges the gap between paper mail and e-mail. My idea is about a robot that can be controlled remotely (via the internet) which can perform the task of opening envelopes dropped in a letter box, scanning their content and sending the images to an e-mail address. Many people who are away from their apartments receive letters in either a special letter-box, each for every apartment, in the entrance of their apartment house or through an opening in the door of their apartment. Now, some may wish to have immediate knowledge of the arrival of any mail and, also, may wish to be able to open each envelope and read its contents. Just seeing the envelopes and where they are from might be solved with the help of a wireless IP camera in combination with some artificial source of light that can be activated remotely when needed. Opening the envelops is an entirely different thing. One needs a mechanism that can pick up each individual envelope, cut it open, take its contents out and either scan them (both sides) or, somehow, make them visible to a wireless IP camera. One can construct two versions, one as a stand alone letter-box or one that is attached behind the door slot (opening) of the apartment.

I'm a teacher in the United States and have used the JD and the rover in my classroom. The kids love them! We would love it if you could include the power pack with the developer's kit so that we don't have to buy them separately. We were planning to print out some 3D parts (thank you for these!) and "mix and match" with student created parts... Also, it would be great if there were some downloadable voices for JD and other robots for purchase on your website.

mskaykim

I don't have an idea that will change the world, but I have two young boys 5 & 7 who have lots of ideas for robots. Most of their ideas are beyond the technical abilities of their dad. However, this is a great kit and this will further their interest and their skills. While we've already built a battlebot and other R/C controlled robots. This will bring coding into out home and introduce it to my boys. As for what they want to build. They saw your video on making the AT-AT walk and Wall-E move. So, with the developer kit we are going to modify an existing toy. But the real world changing project I'm working on is teaching my boys to imagine, make and bring to life their creations. Thanks. Scott

I would like to see object recognition to the geometry of Qubits Construction Toy. Qubits can easily provide a designed/built environment for the ezrobots. Question is, can the robots actually assemble the Qubits? Even just to position and not snapped together. Looks like it would work together. Qubits are lightweight - 2" x 6"

Qubits Toy

Possibility of uploading personality profiles. For example, have 10 basic personalities for different roles. One could be receptionist, assistant, clown, and so on. Each personality who performs big data and consumes API services with different sources and priorities.

Manu de Argentina

This is not a new idea but I want to build the inmoov robot. I did buy the inmoov board but it was too complicated to set up. Too much diy. Then I looked at the ez robot controller and it is a plug n play concept which is awesome

Mclemens7

I would create a full human-sized robot to practice chess with, vacuum and cleanup my room, and much more!

Alexinator40

I would create a robot to clean/sort my desk, so I could have more time do do homework and make robots!

Elliott

integrating ezrobot with a segway minipro used for mobility base and power. EZ will provide wi-fi, object detection, camera w/ "follow-me"/tracking feature. Integration will allow for greater remote control range and also control of electronic test equipment being mounted on modified "knee-arm".

robots will be the future of companionship. There will be "love robots", social robots, and information and sensory robots. The application I am building withe EZ robot platform (JD robot) will be the next step of telepresence. It will allow me to remotely leave the robot in an environment and using a smart phone or other internet appliance, have the ability to communicate with the robot while it allows me to "multitask". This will be continued into allowing the robot to manage (based on previous knowledge and experiences), analyze (using cloud based analytics (such as Watson), and allow interaction (with other robotic devices (smart appliances, smart environments, smart cars, etc). Using facial recognition, biometrics, and a uniform interface with sensors (such as SImblee), and using a combination of BLE and WIFI (such as the ESP32 from Expressif), we can integrate these architectures to formulate the next generation of RoS (robotics operation system).

Build a life-size panther that acts as a home security robot. Playful interactions with home owners and children, but an aggressive posture with intruders.

Red Rik

a robot suit which we can wear that will be connected with our body it will help us fly we can have fun with it it will also be for children like a armor and also can be used for maintaining the health of its owner

I think a robot that helps with Lawn will be helpful even better if can be controller with a remote control and a camera.

juan.rubio82

I am currently starting on my second robot build, a lifesize humanoid robot 100% of my own design. It was inspired by my grandfather, who worked in robotics and technology, and that was an activity we always shared. I want this robot to have an artificial intelligence, facial and image recognition, as well as speech and human - like coordination and dexterity. And EZ Robot seems like the way to go! I already have a prototype for the hand made and it is fully functional, and mk 2 is ready for a quality brain and servos!

TheTechnomanc3r

Make emotion for robot. 1.When low battery ,robot will slow action in safe mode like man when hungry. 2.when have 2 answer that are all absolute correct, robot will make decision by random that same as human.

Hi there! I want to create a friendly, interactive robot with as much autonomy and personality as possible. I'm looking at the Revolution Complete Kit, as this kit will allow me to mix and match different parts. I also intend on adding as many sensors as possible with the hope of achieving maximum interaction and autonomy with its environment. Remote monitoring would allow me to let the robot "stand on its own"!

Dr. Richie

I would like to make a "Robot Butler". This robot will balance and walk upright. It will scan for items left on surfaces that match visual patterns of eating-utility (paper plates, empty-cups, plasticware, napkins), and upon command would gather them up and drop them into a known-location (or tagged) trash container. It could also pick up tagged items that can be delivered to flat table-surfaces in the same room, similar to somebody serving drinks or food to people. It would also answer calls and talk to the caller to ask to take a message, based on the owner's current activity.

Firstlily

I hope one day my son will be able to build the robot of his dreams. He loves robots, building, legos, all of the energy needed to really be great. But, kits like these, lego's mindstorm, koov, WeDo, are great for parents with $150-$600 to buy toys. I hope to build robots that help break that class divide that just seems to grow and grow. A fantastic idea; a mountain to climb.

Popupideas

Hi, I want a robot that follows me around, stops when I do, turns when I do until I tell it to stay put while carrying my toolbox. Can I build one using your platform? Or else could you point me in the right direction? Thank you.

Arturito

excuse me I want to make a robot that helps people to do exercises at home to give people a lot of needs please help me and accept the idea

pepeto22

I want a robot that cleans my whole house, such as wash clothes, fold clothes and put them away, wash dishes and put them away. prepare healthy meals, help my kids with homework, help my kids study, cut my grass, kill unwanted pest such as bugs/ rodents, inform the police for burglars and vandalism, give me updates on my bill's, schedules and workout coach.

Lady T

I am going to upgrade an old Omnibot 5402 with modern functionality. Since my girlfriend and I are not experienced programmers, and ez-robot offers so much, we plan on using ez-robot for everything. The Developer kit looks awesome and will get us on track to making our little robot a kinda pet, kinda butler personality. after reading Markz' reply, I also definitely him to be able to read recipes out for me.

RileyW

I would like to develop the ezrobot to cooking stuffs.Ask the robot for recipes..

Markz

I am a robotic design engineer for a manufacturing integrator in St. Louis. I am building a robotic AT-AT to teach local students and about servo, stepper motor and linear actuator control - on the world's coolest platform. Hopefully more recent graduates will join me in manufacturing!

Skyhawk

Hi there, I always dreamed of building a fully customizable and programmable robot. EZ JD robot is very similar to what I am thinking of. Yet, my robot idea is to make a bigger robot, fully covered so no wires can be seen outside its body. Also, I am thinking to make it more interactive and even capable of interacting with human emotions. I think robots should be able to do work instead of people such as controlling smart homes, caring objects. Finally, the most important expected behavior by a robot is to behave by itself and talk to people by itself anytime. I am going to buy EZ JD robot as a start to study and learn more about robotics.

Sam1323

Hi How are you? The controller looks awesome! I've been plotting away on a kondo KHR-3HV robot for years and its been a slow and painful process (mainly because i done speak Japanese). I've connected it a raspberry pi but it chew though battery fast and is not an easy connection. Id like to use the ezrobot controller to run the servos directly. Ultimate Goal to to make a gir robot (invader zim). Who wants a helpful robot companion when you can have a taco loving one :)

cpsergi

A robot who can track your schedule and wake you up when it notices you are going to be late to something

Jackie

Would like to build one of your robots, but add a remote microphone, so can monitor audio and video remotely, and add navigational mapping, so robot can act as your remote security guard.

slickfix

I am building an R2D2 life size so this should be great to control and expand it.

Joyleen

Nothing terribly original about this idea... at all. I would like to replace my supervisor with an identical humanoid, robotic likeness. While he/she seems to be efficient at inconsequential tasks, higher order thinking is absent. Further, although some leadership talent is visible and, perhaps, admirable, there still remains the need for them to do exactly as they're told. Can't think of a better application of this technology. One can only dream...

Hello, The last years I have been designing and developing several robotic platforms. These are projects that are made with 3D printing and some lasercutting (prototypes are already working on Arduino and pololu microboards.) I'm adapting my machines so they can run with EZB. I want to give them an easier user interface. - Buratino: 3d printed - 50x50cm humanoid robot with 23 axis of movement (full of heavy torque servos). (Arms - torso- head) Buratino will need motion tracking with EZB camera and speech recognition. - Prosthetic underarm: 3d printed - 25 cm - 6 axis of movement (fingers and rotation underarm) Part of a research project, operated by myo band. Runs on EZ builder. Will build next,updated prototype with an EZB4.. - Basilio: 3d printed - 45cm walking robot with 26 axis of movement, (arms, torso legs and head). Basilio has external potmeters on all joints, I will need to find a way to connect the position data of the potmeters to the movement of the servo. In that way the robot can remember in which position you place him (posing the joints by hand) and translate this to a motion frame. EZB can possibly do this, not sure.. it is running on Pololu maestro and RPI now and has trouble being controlled. Need to find a solution... Like to have it running on the EZ robot platform too. - Tappie: 3d printed robot covered with fabric upholstery - 45cm with 5 axis of movement (arms - eyeballs). Runs on EZB4. Tappie is being used in a project on a school. The children (8 -11) can show Tappie cards with QR codes and he responds by telling a short educational stories. This project has a large soundboard with custom made soundbites does motion tracking, speech recognition and QR tracking. The EZbuilder interface makes it possible for teachers to easily operate the robot while in the classroom. This robot has a more simple architecture and might also be suitable for a building workshop at a school in the future. I am still debugging some issues in the EZbuilder but am very happy with the way it performs! Will make a more advanced Tappie using the Ez robot platform. The described projects above I designed and printed myself, if you would like to see photos and little films of their performance I would be happy to send you some documentation. I have been building these things in my free time on a small budget, so any help is welcome!

Buratino

A charging dock for Roli. Autonomous navigation that would map a room and when battery charge dropped to 20% Roli would proceed to charging dock.

Robojack

I wanna make a robot that can be a companion. I would print the chassis at my school on a 3d printer and make the body and head from cardboard and plastic. I would use the rgb eyes to give the robot expressions and the developers kit for the parts. My robot's name would be Harlow Ravi.

My daughter wants to program a robot to recognize her brother and tell him to go away whenever he goes into her room. Figuring out how to arm it with a nerf gun would probably be her second project.

I would want a iron man suit that really flies and has a on board computer so you could tell it to bring back up robots to help you save a person from a fire.

czadikem

I would like to see a water resistant robot that can be place inside a fish tank and cleans the fish tank 24x7. I would also like to see a robot that can integrate the functionality similar to Amazon Echo or Google Home, but better privacy protection, ie. not listening until activated or called upon.

Lu

How about a Security Robot with Taser, Security can maintain a safe location to control the robot and in effect still protect the premises... Of course would be equipped with normal camera, sound, voice with a body possibly arms? the body would need design to avoid tipping over easy either by terrain but also any would be intruder. I feel it would allow security officer to avoid the dangerous first encounter, that is mystery as to if intruder is aggressive or extremely dangerous .

Hi, I would like to build Wall-E as my I/O electronic pet :) and next project will be (smart) ABB manufacturing robot or inteligent vacuum cleaner. But first I need to learn how it works and the features of the EZ Builder. I am thinking about AdventureBot as my first purchase. Thank you all in EZROBOT team, exellent job.

I've been trying to put together some ideas for a robot that would be next to your front door with a head - eyes - action features like a moving mouth - eyes that oscillate hooks up to our phone. I'm sue by now there have been several ideas. Yours? Mike

Bones

At-St. Design a different style of servo or run bevel gear 90 degree at the knee with standard servo. Make it look like the movie. Home security robot. Other idea was a worm gear at the knee spring loaded to absorb shock. Biggest setback is figuring out needed rotational speeds. Servo in the foot, cylinder servo for ankle, circular servos for knee and hip.

Build JD and program it to track my dog and give it various commands. Basically an intelligent playmate that he won't eat.

jmp23834

Hello, I am a student from Germany, who would like to study computer science. For my first robot I would like to build one that's not too big and can sit on my desk. I would want the robot to be a language assistant, so that when I do my homework and have questions I would not always have to use my phone. So basically I would like it to read out at example the information from wikipedia to a topic I am telling it. It also would be really useful if I could at the same time use the robot as a light source, so I would like to include a lamp in it. I don't know in what way I will be able to build this robot, but I will try.

Hi there, I see a lot of different models of EZ robot, love them all but why isn't there a complete and working Robot arm? I have multiple sets of EZ-Robot Developer and would love to build a working Robot arm that can do thinks like make a drawing and stuff like that, kind regards Marcel

MarcelNijhof

My dad and I would like to build a diy octopod using your EZ-B v4/2 controller and 16 servos to mimic a daddy-long legs spider (Pholcus phalangioides), with the front legs acting as sensing legs. With 2 degrees of freedom per leg, we are thinking of using thin fibreglass rods for the legs connected to the servos on the body. A joystick remote, streaming video, and someday integrating LiDAR would be the great. Any hardware advice would be welcome.

As a developmental pediatrician, I am currently studying the use of interactive robots for improving social interactions and communication skills in developmentally disabled children. The versatility and ease of use of JD makes it the perfect tool to help children learn appropriate interactions by modelling behaviors. The programmable LED eyes, sound playback and programmable actions make it the perfect tool! I am excited to utilize this in my practice. Keep up the good work!

I am starting the build of a full size robot on a powerchair base. It will have an extendable torso, and two arms with 4 axes, and of course a head to give it a human like look. Its primary purpose is to roam the house and amuse my friends and family. The design will allow the robot to grasp items from the floor, and reach high enough to pick or place items on a countertop or table. Some day it will fetch me a beer from the fridge. Primary construction will be of 1/2" plywood, with an array of scrap automotive motors and sabertooth drivers to drive the axes. The brain will be the ez-bv4 module utilizing a serial connection to the drivers.

I would love to see the robot have a multi-step code programming that will have a function to choose what is best to do in that problem or situation that robot has to solve. (Ex.: Step 1 Code: //as.vex/* Step 2 Code: //as.hex/* Step 3 Code: //as.lex/* ) These examples is just an example that is give to support my idea on the multi-step code programming.

Hello; My project of robotics consists in developing a robot for my son autistic, he love my first small robot (created with Makeblock + Raspberry pi). Eventually, I would like that my robot can work in autonomy with my son and that I can watch at any time via his camera and see if all go well with my smartphone. That he can warn me in case of fall or in case of danger, that he plays with him and sings him songs. My project is named Coldann, living in France I would have high enough postal charges to be paid and consequently I shall wish to realize a large order with all the necessary rooms for the development of my robot, if need for more information to contact me thank you. French: Bonjour, Mon projet de robotique consiste à développer un robot pour mon fils autiste, il adore mon premier petit robot ( créé avec Makeblock + Raspberry pi). À terme, j'aimerais que mon robot puisse fonctionner en autonomie avec mon fils et que je puisse à tout moment surveiller via sa caméra et voir si tous se passent bien avec mon smartphone. Qu'il puisse me prévenir en cas de chute ou de danger, qu'il joue avec lui et lui chante des chansons. Mon projet est nommé Coldann, vivant en France j'aurais des frais de port assez élevés à payer et par conséquent je souhaiterai réaliser une grosse commande avec toutes les pièces nécessaires pour le développement de mon robot, si besoin de plus d'information me contacter merci.

I recently watched a bucket truck and two city maintenance trucks, along with 6 workers, changing a street lamp in my city. Took them over two hours, and they blocked a lane of traffic in a very busy shopping district. Seemed like a tremendous waste of man power and equipment, when all that would be needed is a pole climbing bot with enough dexterity to open the lamp housing and replace the bulb. I'm thinking about building a prototype of some sort that could be scaled up to manage this task.

I purchased several of the JD Humanoid Robots for my classroom to encourage more girls to learn how to code. They just didn't seem interested in the "battle bots" but found the JD realisticly imitating human behaviour. They love them. I would just request that the EZ Robot site have some learning resources for teachers to use such as challenges at different levels of difficulties that students can achieve without me having to create these myself. I do love the tutorials that you provide and these are every simple for students to follow on their own to build the robots and also your great coding site. Thanks. Marg

Hello, I would like to design my own robot vacuum. For starters I'd like to develop a robot that can first map out a room, then navigate around it using my own algorithm and later recognise that room. Later on I'd like for the robot to be able to navigate across obstacles like stairs, recognise people's presence, notice changes in a room while still knowing it's the same room, move stuff around with his hand, scare away my cats etc.. I am 26, fluent in C# and am very interested in this stuff. Please help me choose the best parts or a kit to get me started properly. Thank you!

mmchampion

Robots need to be available to everyone to run manufacturing, clean, help with businesses, build homes, etc. I am working on a robotics solution that goes back to first principles. A $2k robot with the agility and strength of a 12 yo. When you consider the darpa robotics challenge robots cost $1m to $2m dollars and consume 15kw to run this would be a tremendous leap forward. Material lighter and stronger than bone, muscles lighter and stronger than human muscle, sensing and a nervous system faster than people. Bamboo is cheap and stronger / lighter than bone. Twisted polymer is stronger and lighter than muscle. The goal is to open source it and change the world.

I would like a robot to communicate with my daughter when I'm not home: to help her with the homework, to entertain her with music and jokes, to call me on the phone when need. Therefore the robot needs to have GPS communication, internet connection via WIFI, connection to music streams, camera and pandora bot. It would be great to have also some IOT connection with sensors for air quality, the temperature to inform us (via GPS).

I have a very energetic dog, and would like to create a robot to guide my dog around a walking path in my local neighborhood in an attempt to tire/entertain the dog (the dog wants walks multiple times daily) . The issues so far has not been the navigation or range of the robot on a "typical walk" as much as obstacle avoidance and controlling the dog when it encounters another person/dog.

I currently teach high school and college robotics, starting out with Lego NXT Mindstorms. I would like to integrate the EZ-Robot JD Humanoid Revolution Robot into the program and have it interact with the NXT system to "Operate Autonomous machines" Students would design things like conveyor belt stamping machines or other equipment and the JD can "operate the equipment"...interacting with it. I would also attempt to have the JD "operate" NXT type moving robots...possibly sitting upon one and operating it.

Well bare in mind I am only 12 so this might seem far fetched but an entertainer robot/animatronic (sorry for spelling errors). Like maybe at a restaurant they can perform well that is if you can make them bigger... hey could take special requests like if it someones birthday and they could also double as the security at night and day. If a kid is deppresed their parents could talk to the robots if the kid looks up to them to incurge them to keep going and not give up.

My robot idea is Clutch, a 3 armed stationary robot with a rotating base and 3 arms aligned in an equalatteral triangle position looking from the top view. My hope is to create the first arm using a Dev kit and 3 servos arm to start with. It will be able to sense the presence of and object within each claw and will as the name suggests clutch the object and hold it in place. Clutch would be able to hold up to 3 things and is able to hand back the item held via voice command. It would have commands used corresponding with Arm 1, 2, or 3. Even all three if it is supporting a bigger object. This robot would be very handy for an office helper, display holder, jewelry keeper, flashlight strobe, and all sorts of uses in household, office, or work environments. A rover chassis is most recommended if this robot is to be mobile since a rover will keep the robot level. Thank you for reading this idea, I will pursue creating Clutch overtime to help with my daily tasks.

Add self docking charger to Roli... similar to what a Roomba vacuum does. I understand this won't be simple as not only will Roli need to locate and dock with the charging station, Roli will also need to turn itself off while charging unless the current restriction on that can be lifted.

I want to create a robot that can move around and interact with our environment as a human could. It can open doors, it can pick things up and set them down, it can walk around, etc. I also want to infuse it with a chat bot so you can talk to it and it can respond to you with its own personality. Using voice commands you can ask it to get you something from another room, or give you an update on the weather, or order takeout from a restauranr. It would need sensors like some cameras so it can look around and recognize objects and people, some sonar sensors on the legs/base, and some touch sensors. I just want to make a robotic companion essentially.

I want to make a biped, that would be like a roaming sentry, you could set it out at night, and it could march around in your yard, scanning for intruders, and it would have some 410 gauge barrels machined, one on each shoulder, and they could have dragons breath specialty rounds loaded, in case their is a dangerous situation, and need for defense, or maybe just a mini flame thrower.

I am building on DJ Sures "RAD Project" to improve the RAD toy robot. Specifically, to assist a disabled person: me. I have a spinal injury, and though the surgeries are helping, I still have some difficulties. I'm also a programmer and robot nerd. I have two RAD bodies, and I'm going to compare the process of upgrading them. RAD 1.0 will get an Arduino brain, and R.A.D. 2.0 will get EZ Robot components. I'll share video if you find it useful. I also have an enormous extended family, and the kids are always fascinated when they can interact with a robot. That is why I chose EZ Robot: simple enough for the kids, with plenty for me to fiddle with! Now to come up with names for the robots...

As part of that, I am running openHAB, which gives the potential of integration through the LAN by various protocols such as http, mqtt, zwave, etc. This would open up many possibilities as all of the lighting, security, zones, motion etc. are tied in and could be used to trigger actions on the bot the other way to the home. I plan to research further to develop my ideas and hope to glean inspiration from all of the other contributors at ez-robot. Thanks for making a less painful on ramp into robotics as ROS is very interesting, but would certainly beat my patience as a beginner.

ubergeek

I have an idea for building a robot using everyday readily available parts that will enhance medical facilities by being able to do things automated and remotely.

beetle

Build a robot to help individuals with Alzheimer remember their everyday tasks. Such as doctor appointments, take medication, birthday’s, etc. Have the robot interact the person and stimulate the brain to help with the memory loss. Be able to have family members add reminders to the robot via their smart phone (coming over on this date, etc.).

What i want to make is a robot that has hands that can pick up and hold things for you, then i want it to be able to talk and follow me around like for eaxample," if i had grocerys in my hand i would want it to be any were i go so i can use it for what i made it for." when i get it working like i want it im going to then make one for my grand mother, to help here around the house.

How about a robot that can save a child who has fallen in a well or gaps in ground a rescue robout should enough strong like real steel robots And they can sence human,s thermal temperature for identifying living things than other non living objects

Dinesh.kra

I'm working on artificial intelligence personality design for about a year now to build a robot that is more comfortable for humans. More like a real person. Such a robot needs a body to interact with and I'm thinking to get a JD as platform. Right now it's too expensive for me... so if you have one for me would be great!

AIPD

I have played with robotics back in the ER-1 days with the desire of making K-9 from Doctor Who. I plan on using this platform to accomplish that and also integrate other systems to make it as autonomous as I can.

MadRocker

object recognition for drone - working on project -EzB4 is an awesome base for even some of the more complex robots. Thank you EZRobot!

davros.dalek

A while back my daughter and I met DJ at his house before he was famous ;-) to pick up an EZ-Bv3 which we used to hack a Wall-E, and so began a great father daughter project with many fond memories. It's been a few years now, she's a few years older and I would like to really promote STEM learning at home. So it's not so much about what I can think about today but what she will create tomorrow.

Starman

We need a robot that you just drop into a bath tub and it starts cleaning it. The elderly would love it.

Coder Bob

I am currently building an full size 1:1 scale R2 D2 from Star Wars. This is nothing new, but i don't thing any one is using the EZ Robot system to control it. The Droid will be mostly 3D printed and i am planning on having it done around Desember if not earlier. The reason i want to use EZ Robot is because of the sensor and sound recognition. I don't like the idea of a Robot that i need to control, with EZ i can program it to follow commands by voice making it more "realistic" My R2 will be able to do more then just drive around, i will be adding arms, and other gadgets that are seen in the film. I will be filming the progress and post it on Youtube as i build it. Right now i am printing out the dome, and should be done printing in 2-3 days.

oivaranta

I like humanoid robots especially ones that help out. Like looking up thing for you, making things for you, and cleaning for you that would be the robot I would want to make.

siah112

I have a design for some form of a utility robot with tool compartments and various auxiliary outputs to plug in low voltage devices, capable of mapping rooms and executing voice commands. I plan on building the chassis from scratch.

Dear DJ and team, I started with EZrobot back in the V3 days. I've since messed around with Arduino, Pi and other platforms but I have to say my kids and I have had more fun with EZrobot! That being said, I see a very interesting opportunity for ASIC based machine learning in the EZrobot platform. In my day job I have investigated the CM1k neural network chip for pattern recognition. It takes a 256k vector input, parallel processes 1024 neurons and can report back a result in microseconds! It's about 300x faster than a normal CPU for this kind of work. And the API is fairly straight forward to boot. The creator of this chip is General Vision https://www.general-vision.com/ As far as I can tell, their neurons are the only ones available on the open market today. I've spoken to the inventor and their small team. They are a great bunch and are eager to make waves in the maker community. How cool would it be to have a CM1k on the EZ-B v5?!?!? There is also an option to have the chip running on the PC side (though I can see some limitations there) http://www.cognimem.com/products/design-resources/CogniStix/index.html With cleverly designed EZ builder modules kids could start teaching their bots to do incredible things!

GBot

I have a telemetry suit controlled Cyborg Zombie. Functions as a mobile, real-time robot surrogate through which I can entertain people at a haunted house I work at! Currently, I'm stationed at a laptop which communicates with a laptop strapped to the zombie's butt, which in turn controls all the servo controllers, webcams, speakers, and such. The laptop is a pain to set up every time I bring the zombie out, having to boot up, start up a bunch of programs, establish WiFi, make sure the power system is keeping the weak battery alive, etc. But it looks like the EZ-B controller will streamline a great deal of this system! The only thing missing for my application is 2-way audio! I'll be ordering the EZ-B soon! Mango and I look forward to joining the community! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtHFgiICOuc

HAZARDbt

We should make a zombie robot. It should have different hands than the JD. One of its hands would be normal, like the JD's. The other would be different, it would have fingers that would have wires that connect to its brain, (just like all the robots). It would also have different moves such as: "Eat Someone's Head" or something like that. It should have a mouth that could open as well, (there will be a separate wire for the mouth). Also some of the Robot-Zombie's actions should have speaking in them. Because zombies tend to growl and moan a lot, so some actions should have growling and moaning. One eye should be red and the other should be blue. The mouth should glow and be green. Hope you like the idea!

Robots are made to go and do what humans either can not, or do not want to do. They are used in hundreds of ways from exploring Mars, to working tirelessly on a manufacturing line, to providing companionship. Not to mention they make great movie characters!

mujahith robotics

Teachable and Trainable Robot The robot should have empty memory and uncontrollable actuators like a newborn baby. Then the trainer (may be the robot owner) can teach the robot just as he/she like. The robot will recognize the lessons and record them in his memory. Basically at the the first age stage, the robot can learn movement, motion, and voice recognition. The second age stage will improve to color recognition, size recognition, command recognition etc,. This type of robot doesn't need pre-programmed command and action sets but only learning firmware. After completing aging stages, the robot must act like a human of his age.

Macsuco

A small robot that separates the body from the robot's artificial general intelligence makes it easier to retain control of the entity as it transitions from its virtual world to the real world. As with human children, this gives it time to refine its ethical base in the new environment before giving it more autonomy and a more powerful body. Hopefully we can have a pleasant journey to the other side of the singularity. This will make the future both a robot-friendly and a human-friendly place.

joblack250

You can make a snake that has a rattle that doubles as a sensor to recognize a "threat. " the head could have a camera. The snake would just be pure fun for kids

PTSD Assistant: As a vet, I would like my robot to take telemetric health data from my Apple Watch or another like "health" device and react to my PTSD when I am close to having an anxiety attack. As an example, one trigger might be pulse rate that exceeds my normal range. The robot may remind me of various calming techniques that I have previously scripted. The robot could also help remind me to take medications and give me the correct medicine via RFID bottle tagging.

I'd like to explore robotic applications for the visually impaired, such as being an interface to read aloud ebooks, web pages, news feeds etc, tell time, weather conditions and conduct searches of the Internet. Additionally to provide some assist functions such as the ability to sort bank notes into their correct denominations, sort socks by color, be able to differentiate and identify different medications by their bottle types and so on. Having the ability to have JD to be able to charge himself using some form of dock and inductive charging would be awesome too!

First of all i thank ez-robot team for making a wonderful and excellent products especially ez-bv4 . I have made several projects using differnt boards and microcontrollers , but i was very much impressed and inspired by ez products. I made a blueprint to make a humanoid. So my next project idea is to make a bot that will serve food in hotels and in restaurants. So this is one off my idea and the next idea is it will help to defuse bombs in national defence . So for this i need to buy THE GREAT 'EZ-PRODUCT' (i.e)ez-b v4. Anyway thank you very much for ez team and keep it up and thanks for supporting me . THANK YOU (EZ)

Good home and business security starts at its perimeter. But typical security is all boring boxes and fixed, or it's biological and messy --read employee or live animal. And so my idea for a robot would be to have an animalistic one that prowled the yard. It could 'poop' mini cameras in specific and pre-determined spots and even retrieve them at a set or commanded time. A dog shape or a duck shape would be great choices. My favourite one is the duck. The wings could act as self righting mechs and also flapp vigorously when an intruder appears. Its mobility being easily afforded with sensor filled webbed feet. Night vision cameras for eyes that could extend and swivel would make it an evil enough looking creature and provide 360 degree vision. Its wings when open or closed, can broadcast text messages and from its mighty beak can roar whatever sounds its operator chooses. Alarm bells, a siren, a really loud duck shriek, a 'you are on private property' message, whatever you want. And it can chase the intruder intimately. A totally water-proof robot that I would call a 'robani'. A mix of robot with animal behaviours that sends real-time data back to you. The robani's own back-up security is all of its poop cameras already pooped. If one goes down there are others, and robani can always drop more. It's a visually responsive and mobile security that can actively pursue intruders, increasing the fright level. Spring actuated knee joints and feet claws would make this beast something an intruder would not want to be near. All robani's would also have a clear gaseous stinker out-let that blew vomitable fumes towards the bad person. For in-house check option, it could enter a property via a cat-flap or similar, and follow a basic line-strip. A re-charging station at the back door where it takes itself when its batteries are low. Whilst on recharge, it's still transmitting but at a slower frame rate. Any attacks on the robani itself, are recorded by the poop near-by and the stations own monitoring eye. Another good animal choice would be a robotic grass snake.

I am working on a Autonomous Lawnmower that will do my work for me, or at least allow me to mow the lawn from the comfort of my porch. First will be the R/C version, then I will move forward with the autonomous version utilizing ezrobot!

CKRowley

I have more time now, so i would like to assemble a general function home bot. This bot would be able to have sensors added as needed as well as actuators. I have old software, and subroutines i would like to update and implement into current code and hardware technology . I have a lot of old code for alpha,beta and gamma class robots as well as many extensions of these functions. It would be interesting to see how the improvement of computer technology and sensors as well as programming language affect the operation of these algorithms. I am also very excited about the processing of real time video!

I want to built a robot that will act as a companion. Nothing complicated. It reads out phone notifications to the elderly or infirm. Sarves as an alarm clock. Gives weather notifications and news headlines from RSS feeds. Gives reminders to take medication and can alert a family member if the "owner" doesn't respond that medication has been taken. A basic PA and companion.

I'm going to build snake-like swimming robots that will find sunken treasure under the sea, especially along the galleon trade route starting here in Manila, Philippines swimming and scouting all the way back to Spain. It'll return images of the treasure and send pictures and coordinates to my ship. We'll sail there and then launch several more robots to rummage and collect the loots! They'll put the goods in a basket and I'll raise it and be rich!

Big Daddy

I've been tasked with building a mini Mars rover for a scientist at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah. He would like it to drop off an experiment, detect metal objects, take near Infrared images of plants, and keep eyes on the team during EVA's. It needs to be able to survive outside for the entire mission duration, be operated by a team member from inside the habitat module, and also be operated by a team member 1000 miles away in another habitat module located at the University of North Dakota. This is going to be an amazing project and I believe EZ-Robot will be the best way to achieve these goals in the 10 short months that I have to get it done in. I look forward to working with this amazing product!

Spacejunky

You can make the robot to tutor kids, make them smarter, you can also make them help troops in the battle field. You can even say hi when you move your hand, you make them teachers if you give them a robotic brain filled with knowledge. You can even make them human size you can even sell them to the human sized models to the police and you can program them to keep prisoners in line. Here are some robot ideas!

1234james

The idea I’ve had for a while now is a security bot. Have it sit in a protected shelter under my deck connected to a solar powered charging station. When a motion sensor on the property gets triggered, the bot goes to investigate. It shines a bright light on the area, takes pictures/video of anything that’s moving (uploading the images wirelessly somewhere)…presents a voice challenge and attempts to do a facial match against an approved list of individuals. If the face match isn’t successful it can ask for a verbal security code or something and try to do a voice or verbal message match. If it can’t match an individual to an approved list, it can call my cell and I can take over the talking and see the video stream on my phone. For protection of itself, it would be heavy, sturdy (could take a moderate beating with a stick), possibly fast enough to get away, maybe armed with some sort of non-lethal deterrent, like if it gets picked up or tipped over it can release pepper spray or make a really loud noise or something…maybe shoot flames out...lol...maybe not that last one. It would have a GPS tracker built in to assist in recovery if needed. It could be programmed to perform periodic patrols and always be able to return to its shelter on its own for protection and charging. As time went on, any problems that came up would be addressed to make them less likely to happen again…any parts that didn’t last would be replaced with parts that needed less maintenance or could self-maintain. Eventually, you could have a robot that lasted for years without any human intervention.

carter444

Upgrade six so it can be used as a drone and make it a tag along friend who could land on your shoulder you could either use the legs as the props and have them spin around the center or use the legs as safety protrusions and use a double prop type with co-axial tech w/ gyroscope. Special battery power you design in the shape of your center pod only with the battery fitting into a triangular, flat, and curved mold that attaches under the dome leaving extra room for your newly designed motor. I know it can be done, since I took the time checking out what is hot in the industry and not. I don't know of a lot of companies that are making they're own shaped, specially designed batteries. You're next step up would be to have your friend who is already using your voice commands, but now your voice commands go to six and six sends them on to other bots or friends. Thanks for your time and sorry if it's been already done Mark

I would extend the ez with parts that enable it to show basic awareness of its surroundings. Ideas could be temperatre sensor, CO2 sendor (when the air in a room is ''good'' or ''bad'' and give alarms when there is too many ppm CO2, such as from a heater or fire), water-sensor so that it would stop in front of a poodle, noise sensor to know when it is loud or quite (good in shools :D), light sensor and a basic built-in clock.

Hi, I have been nominated to be super attendant of a new 4-H project this year, robotics. I accepted and have been searching the net for robots kids can make and display. I was also requested to build an interactive robot to I interact with fair patrons. With hours of searching I found Ez robots webpage. This "brain" module was exactly what I was looking for to control this bot. My idea is to build a 5ft robot on tracks that has friendly face and personality. I want arms to function with simple grippers. I would like to come as close to Johnny 5s personality without being confused as a copy cat. In the 4-H building im thinking of wowing people by having the robot recognize the 4h members faces and say hi or some sort of communication to them thats mimics AI. I also thouth about having the robot look at projects and be able to tell strangers or play some sort of recording either video or audio about the project and its member. I also am looking to make a "dog" type bot thats low lying, runs on tracks, has a wagging tail, eyebrows to show expression, and can chase a red ball. This all seems like a lot and it is but most is smoke and mirrors. Im excited to get kids interested in electronics and robotics.

scottbrown46383

My robot idea is a mobile security cam. His job is to wander around outside and be eyes and ears on the ground. If somebody walks in the yard, or starts messing with the car out front, he will intervene, or at least record some video and send me an alert. If he gets stolen or bashed, that could be a problem. So long as he sounds an alarm, what else can you do? Nobody has any legitimate reason to interfere with him. Or maybe I'd set him up on the front yard on a post adjacent to the sidewalk, scarecrow-style, and he can wish people good day! And crack jokes or something. And perform sentry duties.

Barkfin

I get a lot of people asking me where I got my robot bear from. I always tell them I made him with the EZ Robot kit, and an old Teddy Ruxpin. Perhaps you could produce your own teddy bear kit that people could put together with the robot kit. You could make a bear that is all plastic like your other robots. He should be very appealing on his own even without fur. However, if the person purchasing the bear kit wants to get creative, they can add fur, clay, paint, what ever they want later on their own. The bear could have eyes and a mouth like the teddy ruxpin, and possibly get up and walk around like your humanoid robot. He could talk, sing, interact with you, all kinds of things. :)

Kab_Art

A robot that can interact with you and act as a family member. It will involve many servos.

I think it would be great to have a robot-controlled bus waiting station. I take the bus to and from school every day, and sometimes it gets SO cold. I would include a heater and AC, a map with bus taking information, smoke detector with an alarm that would go off if anyone smoked inside the station, and more seats (with heating and cooling functions separate for each one).

TO build a full sized working BB8 Robot, it will move around using the board, i will 3D print the body and make the robot move faster

bb8builder

make like a rag doll mode, that's were you would move the robot one move at a time then save it to your program. some robot programming have this for different robots. this would make programming much easier. this is why i think this is a good, easy, not weird add to the ez-robot company.

jaketanderson

I'd like to expand on my dad's R2D2 so that it is tall enough to offer snacks-- or hey, maybe just build a C3PO to accompany it... After handing out the beers all night, of course my robot friends will give mandatory breathalyzers to "the guys" on their way out-- with just a hint of stern sass. Perhaps R2 could hand out chips and salsa while beeping la cucaracha. I hope no one has already thought of this brilliant plan.

Thing from the Addams Family. Five legged, looks like a hand, can autonomously roam, has visual sensor for object or person tracking so it can follow you, microphone so it can respond to verbal commands. Just imagine how epic it would be around Halloween in your office.

dcmckinley1

This is my idea for now: 1. Robot can detect automatically any cockroach that enter your house. This robot should small with alarm buzz and camera. The source of this energy should be came from battery or maybe from solar source. And should be run at least one week. This robot is design not moving. But it can be detect any cockroach movement so i know my house have some cockroach inside. 2. Robot can detect automatically any key chain lost. Of course every key chain should attach some small sensor or signal sender. So the robot can catch the signal. This robot only using in home appliance. 3. Robot can detect automatically any weather or earthquake symptom. This robot can tell us, "This is earthquake symptom" or "today will be rain" 4. Air robot watcher (this is my dream robot). Actually i need robot that can help any other people. Especially their luggage. Sometimes people got raid by the bad people in their home. I want the robot can detect that belonging and report it directly to local police station. How to detect their belonging? Every home should give some like yellow line. That luggage should put in that yellow line. If that luggage outside the yellow line, The sensor response and send the signal to the robot. And robot will intercept that person or bad guy. And of course report directly to local police station. That robot should waterproof and heavy duty of course. 5. I want also the simple robot to turn of the lamp in my bed room. Sometimes when i was tired from read the book, i forgot to turn off the lamp. I want that robot do by itself to turn off the lamp after a couple of minute. The robot should fly and waterproof and also heavy duty and further improvement. - DarknessZero

I think it would interesting to add some kind of suction cup part in place of hands that can stick to walls and such. Also if it was programmable to release and suction, would be a cool feature. This way the robot would be able to climb walls and get different vantage points for better use of camera. It would add a lot more unique uses for the robot.

Hello, Very simply, Im making sort of a wheeled centipede. Im building it from misc PVC parts (standard dimensions) and using small and cheap eBay-China electronics. Plus the EZ-B4 of course... The centipede is module-based. Basically only one kind of building block dressed in different kinds of outer plastic (or all the same for that matter). The basic part is a simple slow moving, high torque 2wd that you can mount in series of how many you would like (guess ports on EZ-B is the only limiting factor) for a 4wd, 6wd, 8wd, 10wd or 30wd if you like. Linked together, two or more 2wds makes part of a "spine" that kan be moved Left / right, and up (to arch the centipede for fun, to make a large wheel from a 10wd, or to climb obstacles no other crawler / robot would manage). The more 2wds you connect together, the longer the centipede. So. An "all-terrain" centipede that can roll back on itself into a larger wheel by arching its spine or navigate stairs, rocks and your friend. Mine is going to be slow and strong. 10-15cm pr secound, some 15kg/cm torque pr wheel / 30-isg kg/cm pr 2wd / module (Im sure you could use limitless servos for the wheels, mine has geared 12v motors). Since this is just a hobby project, Ive just made concept drawings for my own use. They are more "DaVinci" inspirational than actual anything, but they are based on 108mm wheels, 16mm ID PVC fittings, and on my drawing the spine is animated by wire and by one servo before front joint, and the right / left is pure wire transmissions. Also Some parts in the drawing are related to my metal detecting-integration, that probably isnt of much use to you. I have a drawing out at Flickr. "Module" would be the little 2wd down in the right corner: https://www.flickr.com/photos/caegear/24658138791/

I would like to build a robot with magnetic feet that I can use to inspect the duct work in my house. One of the most energy draining appliances in the common home is the HVAC system. If the duct work has holes or other large gaps, then the HVAC must work even harder (i.e., be even more inefficient) to achieve the temperatures desired by the occupants. My house is old, and the duct work is leaky (as measured by a flow balance of the system). I would like to make a robot that can be used to explore this part of my house to determine what I should do next. After looking through your website I'm thinking a combination of the hexapod structure with the modified feet of the Galapagos and a camera on a tilt/pan setup.

Use your spider Droid as a brain to control a larger robot. I was planning on buying a bunch of parts from your site and building a robot as tall as me and using your spider robot as the program control

I want a robot that can learn the "codes" from you infrared remote control For example the codes from your television,robot vacuum cleaner, cd player etc. Now you can generate this infrared codes with speech recognition. This could help you when you are lazy or it could help disabled people.

eddy

I would like to have a robot who acts like an alarm, it would control rooms, front and backdoor by walking around the house. If it noticed movement it would message the owner and start filming the envirement (to get the source of movement on camera). The cost saved for placing an alarm system could be invested in a robot, who can be put to use for other stuff when the owner is home. In addition it could act as a smoke detector to look for fire.

hammertje

I'm working on getting my original revolution six to run as quadruped with two servos on each of the four legs. I removed two of the legs in order to create a neck like appendage to attach the camera to. Ideally i would include two more double joint arms with grippers that are synchronized to grab larger objects that you couldn't grab with just one. It would be a more heavy duty version of the robot o that it could handle larger heavier things such as the tv remote, cell phone. maybe even other robots or robot pieces. i think my robot would be super cool cause I personally think that the EZ-Robot brand really has a limited amount of robots with an actual use (besides giving me hours of fun building and playing with), EZ-Robot also has almost no quadruped robots on the market i think it could definitely be a cool robot.

For my robot idea, Imagine you wake up in the morning and you are hungry. Your robot can make you breakfast. He could also play a game with you, for example Minecraft. He can be your babysitter when your parents aren't home. He can help you with your homework when it's tough. I can also send him to do errands for me and my family. He can do all my technical work.

The Robot multi tool, It is a Rover which has different slots for different tools which follow you around with a camera which has self recognizing ability, So when it sees you it will automatically follow you to where you are working. This will help a whole bunch when you find out you need a specific tool and you have to go to the garage and grab a screwdriver and bring it back to your work area

Three idea at the moment are BAGMAN My first robot I am building idea is bagman, a small toolbox shaped working robot , basically a small robot that can follow behavior, carry your tools around, hold tools for you. hold a flashlight work light , and display the information for DIY maker tasks do media voice commands with blue tooth head set. It aim it to make it self useful,if a bit amusing at times. . (A simple two wheel drive system running old romba motors with caster) seeks main socket to to charge use object recognition and charge awareness. (bonus point if it remember to can turn the socket switch on and make happy sounds;) TOOL ANT ANT based that is Tool using robot , that 3d prints out of recycle plastic junk . The ant robot can use it tools at base by picking them up with it jaw and power them thought charge point in it or even take them out with it for task using it own power. For printing a it hot end extrude tool like a large pen , running the tools and powering from power connectors on the jaw contact pads next to data lines and sensors. a hardwired switch in tool grip,ensure power safety. other tool could be a modified dremel tool, flash light for telpresentce work. special senor package ect... ...in to print simple rapid prototyping parts it use a dance like behavior , using six leg gait ability to go up and down in the XYZ axis..holding the extruder might make for clever printing and manipulation solution. I think of this concept is interesting as the print head tool can also be rotated and move in interesting ways ,and it could also .walk on the bed where it print to make larger prints, The base also has charge points at the build area where the robot can use charge points on its legs, to power the long printing dance.. recycling behavior It can sorts different materials using vision, object recognition, magnetic, and other sourcing solutions, as a recycling robot...for dirty and dangerous area , Delivering it to its home base nest. The robot can use glyph recognition to know which hopper to deliver too according to material . A glyph and gps ir signal marker could also be used as please recycle in this messed up area.. (radius based). And slow turn mess in to useful stuff. IT base nest that makes filament for rapid prototyping printing grinding and extruding collective plastics..and additive mistrals. These will be shredded and turned into filament and mix powders. the base nest could run on solar .;) SOCIAL BOT A friendly social bot use ultra hal assistant engine chat bot as it not internet dependent and can run other pregames and application ( i know it very well worked with on mine it for 6 year on and off. ) to act as personal assent ,remind assentent, an life coach .

I want to create a domestic help robot . This would allow me to leave a message for a specific person through facial recognition it could deliver this ... He should be able to make me listen to my music, give me information about my agenda ... through a voice interface like jarvis from Iron man ... It should also have the possibility , through its knowledge of the environment , to find a person who is hiding in the house.(Kid's game)

I want to make a robot which will help me do smart grocery shopping. I am throwing away so many things from the fridge and something is always missing from it... It will be so nice to have someone who learns what you eat and in which quantities, knows your schedule and makes you recommendation based on all this info on what do buy. Someone you can talk to about all these boring problems and doesn't mind that, who actually listens and gives you a very accurate advice, suggests interesting personalized cooking ideas and warns you when it recognizes the chocolate wrapping. You cannot get angry on a robot and even if you do, he doesn't mind...

I am building a BB-8 replica droid using ez robot controllers. I plan to have it interact with people. Possibly install GPS and be able to set waypoints and map out pre planned courses for it to follow.

vonjet

I wish to build a single axis BB-8 rolling robot using 3d printed part (having 3 Replicator 2X and 5 delta printer) and a hard plastic shell. The ezrobot wifi module will be put in the head with camera and will add on 9DFO IMU sensor for self balancing and drive the stepper motor. The controller also will control the LED and speaker.

Jin

I am building a full scale BB-8 from Star Wars. I'm printing the shell with a Makerbot Replicator 2X and a Form1+. I'm starting to look into robotics to control the movement for torso and head as well as audio and lights. I want to eventually have a Kinect sensor sense objects so that it can do "goto" and "follow me" commands.

rhon

Found info on building. Bb8 from star wars but u want to incorporate a video and voice control. Maybe have him follow someone. Plus activate him through Wi-Fi to patrol my home when I'm not there. Would love to have wireless charging too. I don't know if your equipment can do any of this

I know a guy who is in a wheelchair, suffering from MS I believe. Limited use of his arms, and with pretty low arm-strength. He LOVES pizza, can can only have it on the days when he has an attendant working, because he lacks the arm strength to open the oven door. I want to give him an app on his phone with one big, red button labeled "Open Sesame" that he can mash on when the pizza smells done. I have access to a seriously-equipped makerspace for any 3D printing and stepper motors, etc needed and I just learned of your product at last night's monthly meeting: believe it will save me a massive amount of very annoying coding! Just waiting to get my discount coupon, so I can place a starter order! Larry

Hello, One of my favorite toys as a kid was called Super Star. It was a an electric airplane made by Mattel. The Super Star used simple cams that rotated to adjust it's flight path. It was able to do basic stunts depending on what cam was loaded into the aircraft. I guess you can say it was an early version of a drone that could fly autonomously. It would be great to build an electric plane that kids could pre-program to do basic stunts and task. The control unit would be modular to keep cost down. You could re-use it if the aircraft became damaged. Best, Modmartino

Modmartino

The idea is a intelligent and entertaining robot which will accompany you in your social and day by day activities. The robot will be constantly learning new things as if it were a child. You can teach the robot new things through showing and explaining. You can also ask him to do more serious things like calculations or search facts on the internet when you are doing homework He wil be an entertaining robot so you can play games with him( board games for example.) play chess when you are alone or with friends. He will know your friends and interact with them. When your friend has the same robot they become friends too. And there are many more things. All the little things this robot can do for you added up will enhance your life. This robot is meant to be your 1# buddy.

I have an idea to build my very own JARVIS (from Iron Man), that will guard my home and stream video in case of an unwanted movement. He can detect familiar faces and has Admin has a runtime ability add more faces to friendlies list. He will work as an alarm, read me news and will warn me of weather conditions when i am leaving for work. He can search results from google and when needed, run them through AlchemyApi. Thats just to begin with..

I think a robotic hand would prove uselful for those who are handicapped. A hand with 5 individual prehensile digits would be even more preferable. What would be really neat though, is if motions and gestures could be programmed onto it and activated when reacting to electrodes that could possibly be placed on the outside of the skin.

My idea is to resurrect an old robot Robonova. He has 24 servos and an area on his back for controller. The software you have on your site will be a welcomed part of the resurrected bipod. The WIFI will also be a big improvement from the old RS 232 communications. Making the robot run may help some of our community that have the same bot with the old problems like I have.

To create a robot to look after the elderly or disabled - it would interact and monitor them if they fell or were stuck it could be trained to come when a keyword was called . often if they fall - they can not reach a monitor, or emergency cable maybe cant not reach their phone - but they could call out to EZ BOT to alert someone? Link this to email or text alert - EZ - helper bot could even allow direct pics to be sent of the situation or direct communication.

A robot that can be deployed in a temporary space to both function as an environmental monitor (temp, humidity, leak detection, air quality, gas detection, etc.) and also do certain security tasks (watchman duties). For example, if a company rents a temporary space and needs immediate and specific monitoring without having to install monitoring equipment. The watchman mode could also be used to do simple tasks remotely; such as making sure a piece of equipment was turned off or just a remote view to see if everything is ok. The possibilities are endless...

A robot that can interact with pets in meaningful ways is a great goal. This might impact HW, but surely define some specific behaviors where the robot can begin slowly with interactions and develop some sort of "trust" with our dogs and cats. Learned behaviors could evolve and eventually the robot could entertain and play with our critters. Thanks! ~Mike

I would like to see the peg feet have a touch sensor (switch). This would allow the spider to navigate over uneven terrain. It would also be nice if JD's feet had touch sensors to make it possible for him to work with uneven terrain. As I have assembled various robots with EZ servos, I have often needed a gender changer. It would be nice if male to male and female to female changers were available. - but something very thin - not think like the cube. Having hands with touch and proximity sensors would also allow more interesting programs, as I have done with my Arlo Roobt (The robot you've always wanted - videos on YouTube). I got my camera in the developers kit and it does not have the plastic housing that makes it connect easily to other parts. It would be great if the housing could be purchased separately. As you can see by the above comments, I am working on modifying various EZ robots to have more sensors in their limbs. This makes it possible to create robot's with far more capability.

I've seen the video of rolli robot. He's got some good mobiltiy and potential. What I imagine is one with the same mobility but with the ability to shoot pinkpong balls and battle other robots. The rolli robot would be able to roll to any area and then pop open and shoot the balls at a target of its choice. Little sensors could be stuck to the robots involved in the battle to determine target points, which could then be used to determine the rules and winner of the battle.

Lord Duck

I love Holiday Displays, and incorporating robotics into them, allows them to be more realistic. With that said have you designed a life size skull/head with moving jaw that can be 3D printed? Example like Bucky Skull! The real movement of the jaw can be done with simple Arduino UNO and Servo. Can your EZ-Robot do this direct to the servo? Does the EZ-Robot have an Audio Out Plug to hook up to the Arduino UNO to allow for this jaw movement? So that is the Needed Functions with solutions... The biggest need is a Life Size Skull figure with moving Jaw.. That you can then put a Mask, Hair, Etc. on to complete the realistic look...

Hi There, i have been thinking and reading through all shorts of current technologies that available. It may sound crazy but does anyone every thinking of building a real life "Gundam" robot? what i mean is not the "Real" Full size but a smaller size such as the MG size or PG size of Gundam robots and the controlling concepts are through wireless remote control. with the current arcade system that we seen build in japan it is a kind of concepts that it may work. No doubt if such kind of robot is build will rock the world. But still there are alot of challenge that hardware and software engineer will face. For now will only become and ideas. What it will require: 1) Gundam design armor (i think builder will know what i mean base on the Gundam Series. Although is an anime but it give alot of ideas) 2) skeleton of the robots 3) control system and software design For other improvement will need to see how current technologies will guide use through.

I would like to develop a robot competition league designed around the ez-robot platform that utilizes non-lethal (non-destructive) weapons, ecm, defensive, and performance enhancing modules (based on a total load-out points system) to autonomously battle opposing robots. I believe the platform is the perfect versatile and extendable system, through 3d printed parts, available in the market. In addition, the price point allows for a large segment of US households to be able to enter with a small initial investment. Receiving any level of pricing discount would aid in this goal. Thank you in advance

rmccann99

My robot idea is essentially a highly automated display for a portion of a lego train display. I have built most of the mechanical parts of my display but am seeking a way to automate it. The Lego robot controller is too limited and too expensive. My vision is a series of missile launchers that will be concealed underground. Doors will open and the missiles will rise and rotate and elevate. There will be an air raid siren and also warning lights. This could be triggered manually, based on some time for inactivity or respond to new activity (a person approaching) or a lego train passing. Some logical combination of these triggers could be used. We have found that the best displays have the most activity in terms of trains and animated functions. Animated functions for most of us (in my club) have been limited to simple motors. This would really amp up the coolness factor.... Thanks for reading.

kennard42

An awesome idea would be a fighting robot. Sure, they probably have one, but not one that destroys the other. So they can listen to you if you say "punch" or "kick" and they will do that. Maybe parts could fall off so that they know who wins. Kids would go crazy for that.

Penguin master

Although this isn't a new idea, adding the ability to fly would be incredible for these robots! Also, animal-shaped robots may get kids more interested in this technology.

I own a company and work a great deal with 3D Printing. While software solutions provide organizations, such as schools, the ability to set up print lists that can run during the night, if there isn't anyone there to take a print off the bed when done, the next job can't start. A robot capability that would detect when a 3D print job completes, removes the print, and waits for the next print to finish. This would create a fully automated 3D Print environment to maximize the use of time.

What if you created one that could lift different recyclables and teach it to deposit it in the right bin? Or, create one that can pick up and launch balls at different objects! OR, create one that lays low, is all terrain, and can capture video that you can remotely record, similar to a small tank-like machine? I have so many ideas for you guys! Too bad I can't afford these...

one motor to power all the movements in the body using cables and small servo's with a nas ai.

To learn a little about robotics and maybe eventually build a robot for long distance surveillance. Nick

trojanjeep

To use for teaching adults / young adults with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia. My idea is that the robot would be interactive and would teach the student to memorise key facts, whether it be for mathematics or learning key programming words off by heart. I would like to experiment to see if the robot could also receive information from a device such as a smart phone or a tablet. THat is the user can respond directly to a robot's question by entering information onto a screen.

Lesleyag

I’ve seen certain toy robots that have a “leash” function. Basically, a wireless device that the bot can be trained to follow. Ones I’ve played with in the past use IR technology. It would be nice if a similar function was available to the bot through the user’s smartphone since most people will have it with them anyways. Thanks.

TheRickMan

Hello DJ Is there a way we could program "Google Voice" into the speech engine so a student or anyone for that matter can ask the Robot a question and receive an answer? I realize most of these systems like Google Voice, Cortana and Siris are cloud based but could this be accomplished to add a higher level of AI to your Robot line? Just a thought. Thank You Hector L. Bombino Whittier, Ca.

Hello. My name is Hassan I am a 14 year old boy. I think that adding more servos for your JD humanoid robot and increase it's size will be a great idea.

souna

Im a twelve year old boy and I really want a hexa robot for Christmas and I love the show and abc called battle bots and it gave me this idea. A battle bot You could have sensers on servo operated hammers so if you hit another battle bot there sensor detects it and they lose a life. Both robots have two life's and you could mont the hammer ends on anything. You could have a spinning arm with hammers on both sides or you could have one on the frond of a ram any thing! And they would also be compadable with all robots with another sensor. Thanks for considering of my idea hope it comes true. From Peter

Peterabbit

Hi, I'm Noah. I'm 12. And my robot idea is a maid. Something that can cook, clean, protect your house, help with homework, turn off lights, and wake up family members. It'd be a maid that you only had to pay for once. And you don't even have to charge it, it would drive over to the included charging base and charge itself. Thanks for hearing my idea.

Hello DJ, My name is Adrian Wu, I'm a fashion designer based out of Toronto. You can google me for more info. I'm emailing you because my interest in moving forward the wearable technology movement. I would like to make clothing out of the technology you have created. I truly believe the simplicity and user friendly benefits of EzRobots is the key to its success. I started a company called www.adrianian.ca which is starting with an anti-bacterial scarf I designed. I'm currently working on prototypes for Fleecer to be more useful and working with various companies like Solarfilm. I'd like to order enough flexible motors to make a sheet of fabric. I know it sounds crazy but I need this as soon as possible. I'm speaking at a conference at Queens University In Ottawa and I'd like to unveil a few prototypes at my talk. Let me know what you think. I look forward to meeting you soon, whether it's if I come to Calgary or you're ever in Toronto. I'm really interested in a long term collaboration. I also have a great interest in Williams project with Alan. Talk soon. Adrianian.

I think you could give a camera a read function like text to speech or speech to text so you could put a piece of paper in front of it and it would recognize it. also, you could assign a certain word as a function name or program the robot to say the word once its recognized

Ki2Kelt

Actually it is an PC idea. I am a Dutch Engineer and would like to make a animated PC-Case. In this PC case i would like to mount the hardware parts on robot arms so it will display all parts like they are floating free in an enclosed computer case. On top i would like to place a JD head and on the sides arms that interact with audience (waving back, nodding, handing out business cards, etc.)

Mortum

Hiya DJ!:-) After much thought; NAO, ROBI, DarWin, JD or Pepper my choice was quite clear, JD the robot. The reason of choice that it's capable of many things & much more than the others..... Ordered JD a few days ago, he's scheduled for delivery today! Will be upgrading JD with a breathable skin and a Robi or Nao head, this will benefit his uses with kids in a class that have extream hypersensitivity & ADHA. Have been watching & reading all I can on the JD info along with checking out the software, in this case will be more prepared for the hands on once he gets here... Had a simple upgrade idea for JD for the future; here it is... JD's CoOl Voice Control (EZ-CVC) Create programs, moves, apps ect for JD on the computer and have those codes programs ect activated via voice command and save them to a mini Memory Card of some sort.... Once your hard work is all completed simply place the EZ-CVC card into JD and say commands; Activate EZ-CVC, once you say the initial start command JD will beep 3 times then simply say any title of the programs ect you have created then JD will preform the programs, once the program is completed JD will bow..... Just a simple complex idea that would be super cool and kids, teens, students & adults would be able to sit back and enjoy the hard work they have put into JD.... Have a couple other ideas such as; 2. Come walk with me, JD will walk with you and follow you with a simple voice activation; Walk With Me 3. A much bigger idea but doubt it's possible at the momet without a big team creating the program for JD; "Smart Phone Connect" A JD version of Apples Siri Have a great day!

I think it would be a great idea if you had a robot that would have servos that go vertically and it would pick up things and set them down wherever you programmed it to put it.

Embryo426

A robot that can aid in organizing my desk while I am gone so that my desk is neat when I get home. It could have a camera on it to have live feed go to a smartphone so you can see the progress it has made.

Theguitarguy

come up with a shell that could cover the JD robot's servos one that would be light and 3D printable.

a247slacker

A humanoid robot that is inexpensive and easy for kids to build/understand. I want it to be able to do the simple things like walk, and then if they want to add to it they can do so on their own.

ez17zack

JD with an Android phone as the head. Android phones include all the sensors and radios inside JD, plus more. Using OTG host, you can even barrow power from the battery.

RobB

Here in Mississippi, there are Legos robotics competitions and clubs sponsored by Ole Miss University, and First robot (or something like that) sponsored by Mississippi State University. I recommend EZ-Robort, which is way more versatile and easier to teach and use, start robotics competitions and clubs in Mississippi and be sponsored by Delta State University, Cleveland, MS where my wife is tenured and senior faculty in the CIS Department. Then, local Mississippi Delta schools which don't have the money to buy those more expensive and difficult kits can get in on the STEM robotics wave/crave.....Cheers Coach Webster

awebster

A robot platform with an iPad built into it, which would allow it to be much more expressive and interactive.

Steve6760

Simply have it monitor your house with sound and motion, visual and have it connected to wifi server to see on an app what your bot sees, plus if there is a problem, it can signal you on your app so you can look. Also a great way to watch pets. I think I will teach JD when he arrives to give the dogs a treat. Would be great if it could take pics and record video and have that saved on an SD card. Wouldn't need to change manufacturing, just have the car reader as a plug in to the board like the sensors we can add. Just a thought. Call it Sentry Bot. Pete

Taddpole

I have built a JD robots using 3D printed parts. I want to control JD using my Android device mounted in a VR headset. I need to be able to stream the camera image side by side and have EZ-app running in the backroung, using the phone's motion sensors to control JD's movements. The goal is a telepresence bot control through virtual reality interface.

DivideWorks

A robot platform optimized to video record competitive activities. A tracked robot on an archery or pistol range would safely record individual competitors for safety and learning/training.

gwen4156

I plan to order 20 JD Humanoid robots for my 4th and 5th graders to use. The students will create their own game for the robots to play and the best game will be played by all of our robots. They will program the Humanoid from their iPads. We also have a 3D printer that we would like to work with as we build the robots.

Caley

Hi there, I have a great idea and i really don't need any discount on any of your robot or the money and i'll only tell only when somebody will get in touch with me on the contact email id. Don't miss the chance!

programmer

I would like to purchase a JD humanoid for my daughters 11th Birthday. Four years ago she went to a summer LEGO robotics camp where she was not only the youngest, but the only girl. She enjoys programming the most... I enjoy the engineering and building aspect. Her idea is a robot that automatically weeds large farming areas. Weeds are becoming more resistant to herbicides, which is hurting our farmers. She would like to build and program a "simple" solar-powered robot to automatically identify weeds, pull them up, and take them away. This may help make the world more robot-friendly. Thank you for EZ-Robot, we look forward to using this awesome platform for her to learn more!

DMC

I'm a Senior in high school, and my school has very little focus on technical classes. I am doing an independent study in which I am creating a robot. I plan on creating a hexapod robot. I will use this to show the other kids, and faculty at my school the cool and attainable things students can do with technology. I intend on making the robot from scratch and will need to control at least 18 servos (for the legs), and possibly a couple more. The body will be 3D printed. It will also have a gyro and ultrasonic sensor for autonomous movement.

Kyle

I am trying to make a panther sized robot ( about 3 feet high, 4 feet long and 1 1/2 foot wide). I would like it to be a fast robot, since it is for my schools pep-rally's, I am thinking wheels, but I would still like the legs to move. I would like to be able to be a little weather proof, since it will send some time outside, and also be able to take on grassy terrain. Lastly, i would like it to be not too heavy for easy transportation.

Joey

i am working on a suit with an exosqueletton build from construction toys, with a robot included into my suit i will be an avatar-cyborg that come from another galaxie to communicate and share with children of the earth, so she teach to children what is the real power in life, be more sensitive you can of your environment, and the cyborg will teach electronic and robotic to children with easy modular component and controller, like ez board and arduino, and raspberry pi, ez board is the perfect brain for my cyborg, my suit is very beautifull, full of light and mecanism, sound effect voice effect, and a guitar hero include in the suit as well to use it as a synth to use many kind of sounds. i will aslo have plasma tour in my back, a system of colored vapor etc, i aslo have a wonderfull helmet, and an nano little flying bug with camera that, also i will have many sensors that activate the mecanism of the robot i want to hack to use as an exo-squeletton, so that character go where children are to help them to recognize abuse and violent behavior and learn that anger is toxic. i hope to cooperate with ez robot community to help me in my project, i am a fifty ears old woman who have many experiences and i am an autoditacte since always, so now i am a computer tech and 2d and 3d creation and animation, even game making plateform, i know very much things, and since several years i learn about electronic, and i buy all my electronic lab at this point with ez boad. ez builder seam very interesting and full of functionnality. please to meet you ez-robot community

gyn

How about a walking humanoid but with grippers on its head and 3 feet connected to a spinning servo on each side and a gyroscope on the neck and (if possible) a way for it to follow you so it can take your stuff and be sort of like a minion who can go up stairs. That way if you need to take the grocerys to your apartment and you have a lot, it can grab a bag on its head and take it up the stairs for you. You could even connect it to your phone and give it a microphone so it can do things like hand free text. So its basically a 3rd/4th arm.

Pyroskelly

I would like to use your hardware to create a robot (I'm thinking Wall-e) to try to get people at my high school to get more interested in robotics. Something commonly known by many people like wall-e robotized I'm hoping will get people interested and show them what's possible.

tippymac

I want to build a full size wall-e robot to interact with children at the children's hospital. They love R2-D2, so wall-e is the next project

Vader

More robots that are beginner stage. We are trying to help our soon to be 7 year old with his love of ez-robots but we can't afford $400 versions of them and although we hope to help him make his favorite Wall-E we are terrified we will mess it up. We are planning on getting the smaller ones but that may not be enough for him! He is already planning on moving to Canada so he can work for EZ robot when he grows up. DJ is his hero!

christophemaury

A few ideas: - i am trying to combine JD with the Rover base, and add all sensors, i think that will be quite cool looking robot and more useful than JD and Rolly robot separately. - i would like to see some software examples of actually using the gyro and accelerometer sensor for the JD robot to make him more stable, while standing and moving, not just to make him stand up from the ground when he falls. - a robot submarine :) - and for the future wish, i would like to see a humanoid robot with an actual artificial intelligence, capable of understanding and communicating with humans

To have a propeller attachment so it could fly around. I think that would be really cool

Bayley18372

I would like to have a robot that could play sports ank cook food. Also I would like a robot that can do common house chores like clean your room or sweep the floor.

I would think a robot that can fix your iphone in 10 or 20 mins will be really cool or a robot that can instantly charge your phone without a plug just batteries

AkalinDoga

I'm thinking of a robot that only has 6 arms on the side of its body and has no feet. And can walk using its arm strength by lifting its self up. And for a name for this robot I'll say lifter because the robot can lift himself up. So if you like this idea you can use it to create more robots.

Doga AKALIN

I want to see a robot that can play a wide range of different sports including- soccer and basketball. I have seen many different soccer robots but I have never seen one that could play basketball. It could be somewhat hard to make, because it would need many different sensors, that can tell where the ball is and how far away the basketball is and then make the required movements to go over to it. There would also need to be one on the ring so that it knows where to aim. Soccer would also need similar requirements to be able to complete its tasks. Also keeping the price reasonably low would be great, because robots like these can be very expensive so some different things may have to be done so that the robot is not too pricey. The robots could be done in different colours, so that if you are playing with two or more, you can easily differentiate between them.

trentg24

I would really like to see a robot created that can communicate and talk with people. Maybe by recognising sentences, it could then respond with pre-programmed responses.

Trent

I want to find away to make the robots fight, with the motion and depth sensors, it shouldn't be hard. Find away to create little weapons (safe weapons like little plastic swords and shields)

C Dawg McGee

My plan is simple, take an existing robotic platform i.e. Roborover, or omnibot and turn it into a fully functioning robot. I'm looking to add full functioning arms in place of current arms, reutilize the drive train, and retrofit the head with cameras & distance sensors. My children and myself think this would be a fun robot project. After we complete the build our plans get a bit murky. They want to go full ai, I'm a bit more grounded and just want to see how many features I can cram into the platform. Our limitations are in budget & time. The older of the two that would assist in the project has a lot on his plate already with sports, school, & scouts. The younger one has cheer & school. So we would get two good evenings a week, if we were lucky. The budget, well family of 5 single salary. I was figuring on picking up a used robot on eBay in need of fixing, and going for your developer kit. This should keep costs down to the 200-250 range. I hope this gives you a picture of what my idea is.

dwbupp

I had an idea that there could be a create your own robot so you can basically pick they theme, then do an outline of the robot, pick the parts and finally buy them and have them 3D printed and shipped to your house.

StarWars115

I and some of my Friends are planning to make an automated as well as gesture controlled robot which can be used as a guide or teacher in villages to teach students and motivate them towards different career fields. Or it may be used in military or health areas also.

mohdtaha37

I have a disability that effects my mobility and want to use a robot to help me open up my brain capacity. I have a little Chihuahua that I would like to play with, using a robot. I want the robot to move around with him, track his movements and kick the ball for him. I also want the robot to pick objects up and pass them to the dog. That's not all! I would like a robot to be able to show me who is at my front door, live chat with them and open the door electriconically. Seeing as I need help getting my socks on etc. It would be great to have a robot to open a draw, select a particular colour of socks and help me put them on. Then, get my trousers and help with them also. With the hand movement and being able to grip, the robot could be used to track a path to the kitchen, recognise the fridge and open the door. Then it could select an item such as a can of drink and bring it to me. Also, open the microwave and place a heat pack inside. Then, via video camera and wifi or Bluetooth, let me take control to press the timer buttons and get the heat pack out and bring it to me. The possibilities for helping around the home are endless, I could communicate with hand gestures via video link, so I could pick up objects such as fruit and bring them to me. Then, as like Siri or Cortana, I could ask the robot questions and it could become my robot companion. Thank you for taking the time to read this, Kind Regards, Brett Peggs

This is a father daughter project( Riley is 8). She wants to build a robot modeled after one of her favorite online games " Five Nights At Freddy's". The main characters in the game are animatronic figures : a bear, fox ,chicken etc.. She wants to build something that will interact with her and her friends. We have already been looking at suitable stuffed animals to fit the electronics into,along with being big enough for some animation ..we were looking at your developers kit to get started it seems to be an awesome unit with a ton of features. !

Rileys Dad

I live in Brazil. Working with public schools and students from lower social income. I would like to buy low-cost kits to attend about 50 schools. This is a social work. What do you guys suggest me? Thanks Marcos Oliveira

MARCOS

I fully understand the complications of making a humanoid robot, and know that it's even harder to make one that can think, feel, and see. But maybe if you guys could figure out a way to program your own thoughts and personality into a humanoid robot, it could change the world. instead of using a remote, you maybe could build a microcontroller to control the senses(feel see hear, Etc.) you could use all kinds of sensors for that. and maybe make it about the size of a child/teen human, but instead of big expensive servos, use hydrolics. Thats one of my robot ideas, and im not under or over estimating you guys, but i think you could do it.

Logan Cooper Elliott

A robot to tell you when to change the cat litter without having to go and take a look would be great.

sweetn8

It's amazing so many people have different ideas. I would like a robot who help me in trading stocks or comodities. It should be able to connect with my trading account and give me live updates or the video on my personal device esp when I m at work or busy. With certain AI it should be able to give me suggestion and even execute trade ( as far as the parameters set are Met) . The whole purpose of this robot would be to continuos monitor the live market and alaram me in case of some significant event where there is lot of volatility in the market and execute or close the trade transaction. - Anish

Anish17

If you had a robot that would interface with a GoPro camera that was 3 feet tall ( or so). It would allow for school porjects or business applications. It would also be interesting to see "shells" that you could attach to your robots to make them look less DIY and more professional.

Hi, I am currently working on building an InMoov robot. I am using a Ultimaker 2 to print the ABS parts. So far I have about 30% of the parts printed. I have been keeping the Ultimaker printing about 18 hours a day, and expect to have all the parts completed by the end of August. I hope to be able to put the Ezrobot controller to good use. Looking forward to keeping you all updated on my progress. Blaine

I have an idea for a robot that most of the parts are 3D printed so it would be easy to to fix/upgrade or give it your own personal twist.

I want to connect the calender on my computer to the robot so that I can have the robot tell me that I have a event at a certain time and alerts me of when I am late . A developer EZB that is a very good shape and is not such a awkward shape to incorporate into small robots A customizable EZB so we could have robots that have more HD servoes or less of other sensors or cameras.

I want to build a 40cm boxing/fighting robot from scratch with carbon fiber structural frame and PLA 3D-printed exterior. The robot will use EZ-B v4 as controller unit with modified power system to accommodate power requirement of 17 to 10 high voltage high torque servos.

mikeysfunworld

I'm planning a companion bot. Something that can perform simple tasks on a schedule or by having me send commands from a smartphone. Starting by the basics, I want it to have mobility, even if slow, and a claw, then expand that over time. The final idea is to have something halfway between a pet and a human. :)

Irinir

I travel for work but have pets. I have a pet sitter that comes once a day while I'm away but if something happens right after she leaves it could be 24 hours before anything is done about it. I'd like a robot that could keep tabs on them by having the ability to find them (tracker attached to collar) and check on them when I request it. Robot could also give them food and water if need be by triggering and automatic dispenser. As I am gone for days at a time the robot would need a way of self charging, like a roomba, when its battery is low.

Fytclub

My Idea is a cross of a Quad Copter and a Helicopter. Named as a Quad-Hybrid. Good concepts of both of the above mentioned can be used to make a more stable, user friendly and eco friendly device. With more research on this concept, can really the replace the use of Drones (Quadcopters) and Helicopters!

I think a robot should have lots of tasks, but if I had to pick one it would have to be a robot nurse. I imagine a robot working in a hospital helping sick people and doctors. You could help save lives with this robot.

ilovecake04

I want to make a robot that will walk around parties and use facial recognition to say hello to my specifc friends. It would then tell jokes and play music while dancing. I also want to teach it how to climb stairs autonomously as well as avoid general obstacles. I will make use of the accelerometer control to teach the robot how to get back up when it falls down.

BigRedRobots

I want to interface the ez-robot system into an INMOOV android to build a anamectronic Holloween display. I am currently using simple cams and motors. This should let take it over the edge.

ChuckTheSon

My idea is a robot that can read. It would help blind people and could also be a great study-buddy. Instead of looking back and forth multiple times to write down a long math equation the robot would read it for you. Even if it could only read one font and one size there could be some type of program that automatically converts everything for you, and any mistakes you can edit before you save it. I think this could really help a lot of people. I'm sure there are many more real world applications that I haven't thought of for this robot.

It would be cool if there was a robot that would act like an actor and can direct it self based on the script too.Then it can have a whole bunch of robots acting. But all the movie would need is a writer and a producer.

Aidan

I want my robot to patrol my rural yard. Survival is first: solar power, northern-michigan-winter-survivability, GPS, etc. Second priority is surveillance. Living in the woods, there are all sorts of animals that may wander through my yard and garden. Video, audio, and remote control abilities will give me the chance to see (and maybe yell at) them whether I am on the couch, in bed, or across town! The "bells and whistles" will probably be, literally, bells and whistles. Lights, music, and human interaction/entertainment will be the third, "bonus" priority when (if) everything else gets up and running.

nixon16

Few ideas come to mind. 1) Arm Pet. Robot that wraps it self (like others mentioned here before like a snake) around your arm or shoulder. Should be able to stream audio, capture video / images and ability to have sensors. Heart monitor etc. If the robot is not on the arm, Should be able to roll or navigate to its owner / partner. 2) Keychain robot. Locates you via phone app. So they keychain w/ keys can crawl to you or roll out. Would require a smaller brain size (Ez-Robot platform) 3) Phone robot. Plug in your iPhone or Android into the robot. Robot will now take your phone to a charger and continue to charge your phone. Until you call to a robot to bring your phone. 4) Projector Movie Robot / Video Conference. With a built in projector to watch movies or communicate. However this robot is able to tell if image is out of focus. Should walk or drive to a position in the room for a perfect distance from the projection screen / wall. Must be able to take commands to pause, play etc. Thank you for your consideration, Greg Shabanov.

How about a robot that walks like a centipede or a millipede. It could be about 14 inches in length and minx the movements of a millipede or centipede.

geniusbar

well to start this off i think this kit looks amazing and for the price it looks like some amazing kit. my ideal robot idea would be to have a household robot or a "buddy" that you can communicate with and hold a conversation with, it would be able to do a google search just by talking to it and would know who i am and only respond to my commands. i think that with this voice recognition and the face detection already on this robot i think it is achievable. the kit is so good for how much it is and like i say i think you could make a really good communicative robot with this kit. my only question is it seems as though it cant run its own programs just standalone it looks like you have to have a pc connected via wifi or some other means. which to me is something that lets it down. as i said i am unsure if this is the case, but wit the leds in the eyes, the voice recognition and face recognition.... well you got yourself the starts of a humanoid robot that you can fully interact with and talk to which i think is something very special that other robotics kits on the market do not offer especially not at this price! i am very much considering buying one for myself!

lukeyboi

I want to use an interactive robot head to create a "study buddy" for university students who enroll in remedial math courses. The head would need 1. to be expressive (affective) 2. to support facial recognition 3. to support character (hand written) recognition 4. to support voice recognition and synthesization 5. to support backend high speed connection with a workstation pc running all supporting software This study buddy would replace current lowend textbook publisher supplied learning -support software, based on multiple choice questions. I envision one bot buddy for each student workstation in a lab, or students could have a personalized bot at home or dorm that would need to connect to a remote server. There is more to the design architecture that I'd rather not disclose. I am closing in on the completion of the design and implementation of the backend and the network/server interface. My focus now is on finding a reasonably inexpensive frontend bot to provide humanoid interface with the student. Do you have a product that would fit my needs? (Can we keep this inquiry confidential?)

MathProf

Carl's (7 year old) robot idea. My robot would turn on the tv, set up video games and play them with me on my team. Carol's (Carl's mom) robot idea - My robot would connect to all the travel information, find the best deals, give me the top ten based on what I have said I was looking for and then book it for me once I select the top one. It would be really cool if it traveled with me and carried my suitcases too :-)

I want students to be excited about things they create. If they are able to 3D print some of the robot and program it to do what they want it to do, they will be so excited. Our drama teacher also has a dream to write a movie with a robot character.

I'm working on a robot to star in a series of safety messages at work. "Lexster" started life as a R.A.D. 1.0 bot and will be used to do dumb things that real people do every day, but don't realize just how dumb AND dangerous the activity is.

Hey. I'm a boy there are 15 years old and just chose the science way of my life. My hobby is to program robots and I think it's interesting. It could be nice with a robot who has an iron detector. So if you for example lost your keys then the robot could find it. It should probably be a small robot. There are probably a lot of iron around the robot but then it's good with the camera and light if it's dark. Then there could be a little map where you can see how far the iron thing are from the robot. Hope it's a good idea because I really wanna get a code were I can save money. I already used a lot of money on robots and just wanna save a bit. Thank you ;)

If JD had the options of hands with moveable digits that would be an awesome piece of kit. That being said I am still going to order 4 JDs anyway :)

I'm 10 years old and I want to make a robot that is like a person. Like the robot from Chappie the movie, a robot that I can talk to, that can say what I hold in my hand, who can see. I would like to make a robot man who can help humans and can think like a person and who cares about people and is bullet proof. I would want a robot that I can play with and can talk. This will be my real robot bro who thinks, acts, sees, talks, walks, like a human. Basically, I would like to create a live robot. My plan is to buy at least one kit, and then add to that kit with additional kids so that I can create my own live robot. My dad has told me that he is going to get me the kits and I am hoping that I will get a coupon to save some money on the few kits that I'm going to get. I have been programming on blocks world for the last year. I have created many different robots, such as fish, cars, planes, boats, and other unbelievably cool stuff that you can think of. I am excited to now take what I have learned on blocks world and create actual robots that can carry out the instructions that I program. Thank you for creating this I am excited to now take what I have learned on blocks world and create actual robots that can carry out the instructions that I program. Thank you for creating this Tool for me to continue my programming. By the way, I am going to use my dad's email address.

Utilizing EZ-AI and EZ-Builder as well as chatbot and web services to connect resources on the internet, I want to try and create a senior care medical robot. Build a multiple pill box dispenser that is controlled by servos and will be configured for medication taking schedules that can be configured through the pharmacy, home health nurse utilizing a cloud web administration portal for members. The bot will also remotely connect to fit devices that can specifically check the heart rate and blood pressure and track with a standard deviation set by the physician profile such as through the web administration portal for members. The bot can call for emergency if user is non-responsive and the also based on the fit device measurements. The bot can have conversations with the user by pulling information from trending sites, news feeds and other resources such as Wikipedia to entertain and inform the user while monitoring their. I really think this is possible and please do not steal my idea - or maybe the project is already in the works!

I plan on using the control module as the central brain for an advanced bipedal Battlebot, in concert with a pair of MYO gesture control armbands. The intent is to replicate human motion at human-like speed in an 8 foot, 600 lb suit of animated armor... Here's hoping :D

what about a transformer, like a transforming robot. it uses a lot of servos, but it will be good as we see in the movie transformers.

What I plan to do is, by using a combination of input sensors (accelerometers, flex sensors and such) on gloves, control a small group of reactive characters for some upcoming children's plays. I would also like to use a similar concept to control an InMoov style robot, but have its reactions based on an actors input (sensor covered body suit). Working on the idea of an overhead track system that would carry such a device forward/backward based on shifts in forward/backward movements of a performer. In short, hypothetically driving a 7-8 foot tall robot reacting real time to the movements of an actor/performer. Shoulders would be driven by 4 separate servo's (4dof) (arm up/down, arm rotate, shoulder forward/back, and shoulder lift like a shrug) 2 (2dof) at the elbow for lift and rotating the forearm/hand, (2 dof) for wrist (up/down, left/right), and 5 (each finger) for hand. Still working out details on what to incorporate from robots like InMoov and what to just hardware up on.

artchas

I would like to see a pair of segmented robotic arms attached at the base without a torso. The two arms could act as legs and walk upright or as a pair of arms and climb up structures or aver obstacles hand over hand. This would be great for search and rescue or reconnaissance.

I have always had a love for robots and collect early Tomy Robots. I would love to have a butler type robot, who could carry drinks, grab things off the floor, chase the cats and answer my commands kind of like robbie the robot, but much smaller. When I save up enough to get the LD Humanoid robot, i plan to slowly replace all the white plastic with colored 3d printed parts. I would love for him to walk around the main floor of our place, bug the cats, do roll overs etc. Being able to easily change and modify your robot designs open up a whole new world to myself and having it easy to control makes it so much better I WILL be buying one soon, just have to put together the $ :) Thank You

I have a friend with a handicapped daughter that is wheelchair bound. She has to use an electric chair. They asked me if I had an idea on how to help her pick something she has dropped, up off the ground. She has trouble using one of those gripper things. So I bought a 3d printer and found a suitable robotic hand/arm to print. I have ideas on how to make this arm foldable when transporting. What i need is to be able to control 2 to 4 dc motors and 6 servos. now, if she is having problems, I need for her father/mother to be able to help using wifi. Having a camera for them to be able to see or communicate would be helpful. I have not been able to find anything else in a compact unit that can do this. Your help would be much appreciated. Also I am following your female robot download on a 3d printing website, not sure if I am allowed to mention names here. But I am sure you know which one I am talking about. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Ferretonthelus

My robot idea is that robots should have a jump spring and a mechanic to stick to the wall of a flat surface (Glass, concrete, wood) Also, a robot that can make scrambled eggs (if possible). Maybe even a robot that can fly and walk. So it can fly down the stairs, start walking at the bottom and go to the door, fly up and open it (if unlocked), go outside, close door, and turn back into the car mode. The flying would be like a helicopter with retractable blades so it can go into the body when you are driving! Thank you for reading my suggestions! Hopefully some of them can come true! -AJ Kaz

A robot that, with a voice command, will use an arm to open a refridgerator and reach to a specified location to retrive a drink or something of the sort (bring me a drink, reaches to area one; bring me [a pizza], reaches to area two-- possibly multiple areas programmed), lower it down, place it on a tray and/or drink holder. Once the arm has set the item down, the arm will close the fridge door. Then the robot, with a digital blueprint of the building programmed and the controller wearing a trackable device, will bring the desired items to its controller.

If I could have a robot do anything it would be a robot that you can have conversations with about your day, partner, work and life in general. It would be non-intimidating and very curious, asking unique questions which would be analyzed behind the scenes. Based upon the information captured in conversation, the robot would be able to suggest activities you should do, foods you should eat and people you should see to keep you as happy and healthy as possible. If it could integrate in with your shopping lists, calendar events and to-do lists it would be a truly great user experience and helpful tool.

I feel a true robot should operate autonomously, not be a remote controlled toy. I would like to see video projection would greatly enhance it's usefulness. It could display time, date and surrounding environmental information while influencing thermostats through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi devices. I could be use to help hearing impaired to see the the response to commands. and have a R2D2 display. Ideally when 3D projection is readily available and cost competitive.

I am very excited and ready to purchase one of your Roli Rover units , but I would like to get the Humanoid head instead of the camera head that come with the unit . Maybe since the Roli Rover is such a model that can do so many tasked you should offer a option list for this one model , more of a smorgasbord option with heads and a few other options . I think your approach to these Robots is wonderful and am looking forward to getting started on some photographic projects with a Roli Rover right away . Thank you , Jim Heric 541 935 9503

Originally I downloaded your ez-builder program becuase it looked cool. So I wanted to program a drone to follow color, but I looked into the parrot drones and there around 400 dollars so I decided it'd be cheaper to buy the WiFi connecter and the syma drone. Which would already be only 115. But I could also use the connecter for other projects I have in mind.

I am thinking of ways the Fire Department could use this and we have been looking for something like this. I would like to be able to have a robot in a suitcase that we can build in minutes for any type of situation. If it is a hazmat situation we can add the detection devices to it, if it is a search and rescue we can add the light and cameras, if its to see if something is structurally sound we can add weight to it and test the structure

I train my dogs for Agility competition. I would like to design a robot that would dispense a treat after my dog finished a required training operation correctly. For instance, I send my dog over a hurdle and through weave poles. The robot could be at the finished part of the weave poles and dispense a treat when it recognizes my dog.

Drummer boy

I am a type 1(insulin dependent) diabetic and have been so since age 11. As a result, I have had numerous near-death experiences due to hypoglycemia(low blood-sugar). Had I ever been alone during one of these episodes I wouldn't be writing this. I have what's called hypoglycemic unawareness, whereby I no longer exhibit any symptoms such as shakiness, weakness or odd behavior. Due to technological enhancements in diabetes I currently use a programmable insulin pump and device that subcutaneously measures changes in blood glucose. This device can be set to alert me audibly and tactically whenever my blood glucose reaches a critical level. Both of these devices communicate independently of each other in the 2.4Ghz range. I am starting on a robot which will receive each of these signals then take appropriate action. The most crucial action would be the ability to give me an intramuscular or subcutaneous injection of a fluid called glucagon which almost instantaneously raises my blood glucose. This is usually done by another person because at this point I'm unconscious. The injection site is not critical. It can be given through clothing if necessary. I could wear a small transmitter which would guide the robot to me then using imaging recognition technologies(probably) have it locate an arm or leg to administer the glucagon. This would be the most invasive measure required. It could optionally allow the two devices to interchange data and act accordingly. From simply alerting me to a change in blood glucose or to tell the pump to change it's dosing. They already train dogs to perform some of these measures. I love technology so this seems like a perfect project for me. I am on disability and cannot afford many of the gadgets offered here. I currently use Arduino products and am just getting into the more interesting microcomputer products such as Raspberry, Banana and Orange pi-like boards.

I'm an software engineer. I don't have any robotics building experience but I want to get my 7 year old son start early on robotics. I'm evaluating EZ-Robot and Lego Mindstorms. I have two questions. #1 What's major advantage of EZ-Robot over Lego kit from 7 yr old educational purpose prospective? #2 If I choose EZ-Robot (your stuff is super cool, I watched a lot of your video clips), what kit should I start with? I lean toward the idea of DIY kit but not sure if it's too much for 7 year old (programming), or maybe a JD kit is a safe bet? Thanks a lot in advance for helping me out. -Best, Iceteeth

a laser tag robot it will shutdown for a couple seconds and ther are senser that the other robot has to hit and you control the robot with a controller. I haven't used a ezrobot but i have seen it and my name is ezra so thats a cool feature. hope you like my idea.

ezraneug

I'm thinking of JD with gyro. So he can have better precision and balancing. In addition, I think JD should have another pair of servo between its body and its two legs so each leg can rotate left and right while its curled up making a step backward or forward. Another design could be a T-Rex or any dinosaur feature-like design. Also I'd like to have a robot that's ROV under water. It's a very good starting point for marine biologist and marine engineers designing underwater explorer. I'm also thinking of JD with a toy gun that can aim on targets, make precision and shoot using the user's command. In addition, there should also be a projectile launcher robot or something that does that. It should be able to measure the distance from itself to the target using laser-sensor, make calculations based on kinematic equations and forces and launch the target accordingly.

I propose a robot that would help in assisting school teachers in paper corrections. Everyone knows that exams are necessary but if there is an answer key for an exam and someone has to sit and correct all the answers that is very tedious. Instead we can have a robot correct the papers by scanning the students paper and writing the total and points assigned for the question. He can read through his camera and interpret the results in his micro controller while doing math to assign the total which will reduce calculation errors. He can also upload the scores to the course learning website that the school uses. May be he can even go in and teach the students. I think this would be a brilliant and beneficial innovation

Use multiple bv4's and unlocked rooted cell phone to build large interactive bot. The smartphone has quadcore, gps, bluetooth, wifi, cameras, mp3 player storage, and the ability to run apps. With the right interface this could be powerful and good environmentally. Recycling the phones. What do you say can it work?

BsaJeff

My robot idea is to build a humanoid robot (head, torso, arms and legs) and to make him interactive so he could receive input from a tablet device. The robot would be used for educational purposes to teach primarily children skills I used to learn by rote when I was younger (e.g. times tables, spelling commonly used large words to extend one's vocabulary) and other skills which could be stored in the child's sub-conscious mind. Apart from building a Lego Mindstorms NXT robot on the weekend, I do not have any other experience in building robots although I teach Computer Programming (from beginners to advanced levels) at Wintec in Hamilton, New Zealand. I see that the Robot would be able to take children through their times tables, spelling etc. whilst "mum" was busy doing what she does when the children get home from school. The robot would become the child's buddy (as in have a name, greet the child and have a conversation with the child too). I also see that the Robot could be programmed to teach memory games etc. and if it was successful, be used in rehabilitation centres where people have suffered some type of trauma to their brains (injury, stroke etc.) I have to be honest and say that I don't have a lot of discretionary funding so any subsidy or heavily discounted offer to enable me to buy all of the parts required, would be hugely appreciated.

Multipurpose Networked Robots with Robotics Operating System The concept is about developing a group of networked robots which is a multipurpose robot of particular configuration and degrees of freedom, in which various tasks can be saved as software task files and which can be transmitted along the network to a similar configuration robot in a different location. The concept of networked robots require a user friendly design in which user can alter the shape and position of various parts according to the task or work . The development of software task file for each work can be done from different location and which can be transmitted over a network to different robots. The networked robots can also be used to control another robot in hazardous situations like military applications, mining etc. The development of software robotics task files or programs while each robot in a network learns a new task or work which can be saved as a software task file. Thus whenever similar sensor input information matching situation arises the robot can recall the same task file. Thus each master can make a number of software task files and which can be saved in each robot and whenever another robot need the same task file which can be downloaded from the network. The concept leads to the development of personal robots which users can easily personalize according to masters home or in industry according to the need . The personal robots which can be designed according to the need of the master. This concept of the robot is to develop a hardware according to the a number of or industry activities with a particular operating system (Robo OS). The next main concept of robot is to learn while doing a particular task. By repeating similar tasks when ever similar situations arises. Development of a robot application development environment in which user can buy a certain configuration robots for helping them in day to day activities and install various software task files to do various type of useful work. Only with the help of multiple sensors a robot can solve real world problems. The robot should sense using the sensors and send this information for computing and according to this computation result it should move the motors and solve the specific task. Intended to develop a robot which is connected to a network of similar robots which is multipurpose and can do various types of tasks assigned to it. The main concept of proposed robot is multipurpose and it must be able to download software for specific task through a network. The generation of a particular species of robots with artificial chromosomes . The main concept is a fully independent locomotive robot which is able to take a maximum information about the real world through multiple sensors and it should work according to the input information from sensor. The next main concept is the robot should be able to learn from the real world, means for initial training of this robot by making a positive and negative response system ,which must be a software which should remember the task or response of the robot to various real world situations. By starting robot brain development centers in various part of the world we can get various real world problem solving software. The next task is to make hardware for this robots like sensors , motors, actuators for initial robot development. By making a unique robot processor and operating system which we can install multiple task software is the main concept of this robot.

I have one existing robot I want to upgrade with the uses 2 of EZ B4 board s and 1 camera to give my full scale R2D2 more interactive / autonomies futures. You can see a picture of my r2D2 and I on my profile page. Or: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcoBHKIsNrY. Then I'm going to purchase 1 more EZ B4 board and cam to build a set of 1/2 scale droids like C3po and R2d2 for my computer shop. I will call these droids " Droid-lings as they will be 1/2 scale. There function will be to entertain customers in my computer shop until I can work with them. See I'm the only employee in my computer shop and some times it takes me a second or two to get from the work area to the front where the customers come in. So my plan is to have the Droid-lings great the customers and welcome them to the shop and keep them occupied until I can get there. So now that my income tax money is in, I'm looking to buy 3 EZ-B4 boards and 2 cameras. So if I could get a price break that would be gratefully appreciated.

Slee The Sloth

I want to attach a propeller to my robot so I can make a quad copter that can do stuff like tricks and video recordings . And I could attach a claw griper using JD's hand or 3 of Six's legs. I also think that JD and Roli should get hands with at most 3 to 4 fingers so they can do interesting things with objects besides pick them up. I also want the camera to have no lag on it so if it turns it doesn't blur and the robots to have fluid motion so it looks more life like.

Advanced interaction where a person can hold a conversation with the robot and get real answers! The macine would start off at infant level but quickly learn and grow as it stores information about its environment. The robot could help those with mental and physical heath problems, the elderly, and basically anyone who finds it difficult to interact with humans and their surrounding environment. A robotic friend who would make it easier to cope in situations where a person through no fault in their own has become isolated and lonely.

I would like to design a robot to help with herd management (goats/sheep/etc) on the farm. Something that could travel with the herd, like following embedded RFID chips or bluetooth beacons attached to ear tags, and report back on sicknesses, births, animals in distress, etc. I'm thinking some of the camera recognition bits could be programmed to detect several of these situations with the help of an auditory monitoring setup. Also, there could be a herd defense mechanism to detect and deter predators with sight/sound. Coupled with strong wifi access point(s) around the farm, and some sort of autonomous charging when they animals and robot return to the barn for the evening, I think this could be viable. I'm working with an electric wheelchair base that handles off road terrain fairly decent (I'm considering changing to some form of 4x4 or 6x6 chassis with more ground clearance however), and has the battery stamina to last for the day, but right now I have the older v3 board and am looking to upgrade to the v4.

i really do believe that it would be cool to have a rover type robot that is controlled be voice and would be able to complete tasks given to it also please make EZ-Builder for rover 2.0 thanks

The awesome EZ

I would love to see the robots that have emotions the robots that would do more then just work but care for others like the people that are looking for a friend but are to scared to asked or help the elderly or disabled.

chardae

What ever happened to Aibo? That is what I would like to know. We need more robot companion pets that can do more than walk and bark, but also walk up stairs and emulate pet personalities and emotions.

Andrea

My robot would be big and have a can of lots of different drinks inside of it. when I say for example "cherry juice please." it will go to where it hears the voice and deliver the drink.

I would like for the ez robot software to have a complete data status board in the file menu that would tell the status of not only what the ezb tells with the volts, watts and battery status but the status of the servos, regulator and fuse panel status. Also I would love to see robo communication where all robots powered bye ez robot can communicate with each other as well as communicate with their creator and an magnetic electric charging system so that it doesn't require a battery to keep the system operating and a way to add cleverbot technology with data recording of any and all information to send to the cloud to analyze and add to its data bank and be able to learn and teach its self new communication methods. And finally emotional detection system when to help it fell and detect when some one is expressing sadness, madness or happyness and find solutions to better the mood of its self and its owner.

I am going to try to implement a robot that will inspect city sewers and storm sewers.

TNMike

The cliché sound of whirling servos and stiff movements need to be the primary focus on the next generation of robotics. Advances in conductive nylon materials that can constrict or expand by electrical impulses could lead to quieter, more lifelike robotics with smooth motion. Then we simply use nylon technology to replicate our own human muscular system. So, what’s my idea? Building meccas (to steal a term from AI) that move as quietly as we do.

WebsCo

Electromagnetic gloves would be some pretty sweet gear to wear and easily reach stuff without having to move much. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a robot project entirely. It's something to consider making in the future. :)

I am a professional painter. I want to create a robot that can spray paint either utilizing a stand alone sprayer or being incorporated with it. I need it to spray out ceilings and walls in a new construction setting. I would also like to create another one that can paint doors and trim by running them through an internal spray booth perhaps similar to how they paint autos in the factory.

Chico

I think it would be an amazing idea to have in depth coding to the robot, so it can do more things instead of you always having to tell them what to do. Other than that this is an amazing idea.

Caleb

I am a greater than 60 yr old who needs more help. My robot would give/watch my medication, dance with me, talk to me, sing to me, teach me, show me the world and bring together my friends, and crud all my data. If this could happen? Then I could make my own coffee. ;)

CodyG

Not necessarily a robot idea but was wondering how much load the servos you are using could take. Coult they be used to pull throttle and gear cables on a diesel motor. Want to look at an electric (mobile) setup for a boat to do away with manual shifter. Could always call app "Robo-Bot" (Boat)

I have discovered from my experience with aging parents that this age group are notorious about keeping their meds strait and taking them on time. I would like to see a product that would nag them with alarms and possibly visual aids as to what and when to take them. Kinda a personal assistant for elderly. The ezrobot platform could also give the kids a way to check on their parents remotely as well. I haven't thought this through yet...just a concept.

SteveB

An autonomous Omnibot that is similar in function to the medical robots at UCSF. I was impressed with their guidance system that effortlessly moved throughout the the hospital floors. This included object avoidance, spacial orientation, and seeking out human interaction via inferred.

Sería interesante que haya un robot que tome la forma de un cubo de basura. Si se lo llama con un control remoto, un control por voz, o lo que sea, el viene y se puede tirar la basura ahí. También, este robot puede ser configurado de manera que recuerde cual es su punto fijo, es decir donde se encuentra el cubo de basura hasta que uno lo llama. En cuanto a la manera de cargarlo, puede ser mediante un panel de luz solar (algo común en los sistemas de hoy en día) o directamente ser cargado con un cargador. Saludos cordiales. -Lucio

I would build a robot that would assist around the house picking up , notifying me of event going on in the house when I am away, and interacting with other hardware in the house through IoT automation. This would bring a whole new meaning to smart home and enable true home automation that is not just for gadget geek, but open to the masses. Traditionally, smart home hub and devices tend to intimidate the average consumer but with robots you can place a lively face and voice on automation which will ultimately help customers embrace and accept this groundbreaking technology.

M.i robot will be a live telly present robot for adults to children to be there with there kids send a hug home even sing your baby to sleep while being represented by a lovable inanimate shape the cube for instance feet that pertrude through the bottom And two arms that are also self righting tools 4/6/8 servos embedded sensors or just as many sensors as possible eg light sound ir distance orientation and a raspberry or ez jd type robot brain simply a non human look as in a cube or sphear or egg shaped there r to many ideas for me too say but simple is the key wobbling movement left and right servos forward and backward and two arms the same a led or LEDs for comunication and speach or Siri type interface and semi autonomus behaviour with simple reaction to distended depth light sound with all the know how of the jd brain I think this is possible I think this unusual yet loveable robot that would be at home playng music dancing or reading RSS feeds at work or being an annoying alarm clock or just a friendly communication device I have too many ideas to write as I am heavely dyslexic and have trouble typing or writing I have a few drawings of idea and can create more as drawing not a problem but I see the robot as a dislysic freindly tool that will take speach dictation spelling surgestions through speach and learn visually i have also owned lots of robot eg robonova / robosapiens 123 isobot rq humanoid robot they are all good but but none had the full pakage like the easy jd does I think the ez jd is my kind of robot sorry to go on but very passionate about this

Nij1975

I want to build a larger version of jd by bassically combining two servos to work together for each part of the limb. I want him to be able to reach the counter tops, and possibly add a linear servo for an extension on the arms. And maybe put extension blocks on his legs to make him taller! This is gonna be fun

Minxyup

I want to make an autonimous robot that's purpose is to "survive". It finds sunny spots to charge itself via solar panel. It looks and listens for people and hides basically like an insect. I think it would be cool to see how long it could "survive" on its own.

DerekG

I'll be building a robot for robots. My first robot will pick up your Roomba or iRobot and carry it up sets of stairs/into other places and then get it to begin again. This way you don't have to buy multiple units.

Tim Brian

My ideal robot would be large enough to carry groceries, laundry, etc. pick stuff up off the ground, has AI, be autonomous, a companion, has a built in video display, return itself to a recharging station and cost less than $2000.

Lawn grass cutter - A robot that can "see" the garden boundaries and stay within them. It has an adjustable height for the grass and can cut the grass as it goes along. It needs a rotary blade to do the cutting. The grass can be cut and left on the ground to be blown up later. Alternatively the robot could also collect the grass but now things may get a bit heavy :)

rajasahi

A robotic sleeping baby guardian - Like a remote camera and sound monitor but could also monitor temperature of room and/or the baby, breathing, and or oxygen levels even humidity. Can play soothing music or recorded mommy sounds or voice over from an remote app, project images sound alert and even call 911 if alerts are not responded too. A mobile model or attachment could also track the child.

TheGrayOne

Hi! I want to "upgrade" JD so he gets more human like and a bit taller. I would like to ad 6 servos to his "lower" body/legs so he will be more moveable. Why not build a lower body part (a box like the "Humanoid Body" -part) and install servos so the legs can rotate, move outwards, rotate the upper body & (this might be the tricky one) why not have a servo to bend the joint between the bodyparts forward like you makes a crunch. This would make JD to a "complete" humanoide and more useful & flexible! Maybe the arms need an extension block to give JD a better reach after this "upgrade", but not to much so he looks like a monkey like now :) The hands (gripper) would be only a bit lower then the hips to give him a more "human" look. (I'm building an full size "R2D2" and the humanoid "InMoov" and this little fellow is a nice supplement to my collection.) Thanx for a really nice and fun little bott :)

Make up a robot which is a combo between Jd and Six so he can move fast with little mistakes and also be able to interact with objects.

Oliver

I want to build a robot that helps dispense pills. I know a lot of elderly who often forget to take their pills, or take too many because they can not remember if they took them already. When someone gets new pills you pour them in to the container, the robot would have a scanner on it and would be able to read the label and figure out how many pills should b despense each day and how often. It would them dispense the right amount of pills through out the day. even going so far as to walk/roll over to the person and offer them their pills. Because it can read the amount of pills to be dispensed it would also be able to let the person know when they were going to need to get refills, maybe even message the pharmacy to arrange refills by its self. And because the elderly are often lonely I would like to make the robot have a soft fur patch so they can sit with it and stroke it and have it pur and respond. Studies have shown that having something to stoke can often lower stress and help with depression.

EltonQ2

A robot that can care for elder people suffering of Dementia, like the one in the movie "Robot and Frank" (very nice movie, you should see it) would be great. I'm now busy building six to get started. I only bought the EZ-b4 controller since I live in Europe and costs after tax, customs fees and shipping already raised the bill quite high. So I would be very pleased with a some saving on buying the cameramodule and mybe some other parts (and even be more pleased with a european distributor ;-). I printed all the parts at my local Fablab, where I volunteer and give workshops. It is printed very nice with black and silver PLA. When it is ready I will post some pictures at the forum. What would be a really good addition to your allready great functions is a simple way to let the ez robots react on low voltage and go to a wireless batteryloading station, like my vaccuumbot does, and load itself. I think this would be to hard to make but it would be easy if is implemented in the ez builder software. Apart from that I think I'm going to use my six, apart for fun, as a surveillance robot in my own mini fablab at home, so it can take an eye on my 3d printers and help me with tinkering. Expect my Peachy printer this year from Canada I backed on kickstarter and I backed an AI project, JEASA, also from Canada (it would be awesome to let it work together with EZb!), So I guess my place will be taken over by the Canadians! (Well, since a lot of Dutch went to Canada, I suspect they will sent things back in the end, won't they?)

Dave A

I would like to develop or to see a robot created to detect mines and I believe it can be a low cost robot, if compared to the ones already designed for military purposes. The robot would be lighter, more portable and could have an autonomy allowing the human who supervises the landmine scanning to perform other tasks and/or finish the landmine scanning in less time. I see the robot composed by an air drone and a mini airship and the servos, board and part of the software can be from ezrobot.

My idea about SIX . I will add some pesticides mekansm to robot and use it on the field .

Large companies are at this present time working on artificial intelligence for robots connected to the internet. Google is working on a voice recognition search engine that actually answers your questions instead of giving you places you can look up the answers. They are also building a Knowledge Graph using their search engine bots. These bots are cataloging pictures and information of everything. They are also storing data on how to use the the items they are categorizing. When I say using an item i mean it will tell robot what they are looking at an how to turn it on, pickup and use that object. This will allow robots to not only see things but know what they are and how to use them. They would be able to look at a room and know how to walk through it without the use of sensors much like a human. You could tell a robot to go cook dinner and it would be able to. You could tell it to go get something and it would. This is all great but what does that tell us about robots. First we have to realize that the robots we are building do not have big brains. With ez-robot we use wireless networks to access our computers which have larger brains. With the easy software and EZ-Script, EZ-Robot could be developed to interact with online massive Google artificial intelligence computers. The secrete is the interface. Google wants to provide this information to our robots to make them smart. All we have to do is build the our robots to interface with Google. Right now there is no standard to bring search engines into computers. once this is done the robots we dream of are just around the corner. We already have the mechanical items needed such as motors, servos, etc. We have the simplest robot software available in EZ-Robot all we need is the brain.

A Robot that could help change our world. After my mother had a recent stay in hospital it got me thinking about this very question "How could robots change the world". My idea, a bedside/mobile robotic unit with some important functions to care for a patents needs during their stay in hospital. A "Medibot" if you will. 1. Communication between family and patent. I managed to get to visit my mother almost every day, although some of them days it was not convenient to visit due to tests being done, or my work commitments. My sisters couldn't get to visit as much as they wanted to due to their own commitments. So, one of the functions would be to have an incorporated telepresence system so the patent and their family can be in easy reach of each other via audio/video communication. A convenient way to see and hear each other and good way to remind someone to bring the grapes with them. A patient making a call would be done by voice recognition or touch screen interface depending on the patients current abilities. Also a nice was to communicate if the patient is in an isolation room. 2. Assistance. Medical staff are wonderful, but they are very busy people, doing multiple tasks looking after many patients at any one time. When pressing the bedside assistance button, a patient doesn't always get an immediate response. A Medibot could find a nurse a tell them that a patient needs assistance, stating what the patient needs are, even displaying the patients current medical stats, and the nurse can then prioritise weather the call is urgent enough for immediate assistance. It could also remind staff if a patients medication is required at a specific time. 3. On-board medical equipment. I always found that the staff looking after my mother had to wheel around or wait for equipment to run medical observations. Sometimes the equipments batteries would be flat and staff would have to go off and find another monitor that worked. A Medibot would have an on-board defibrillator, blood pressure monitor and EKG monitor, and the robot would ensure that it always had sufficient power to run the equipment by self charging via a docking station when needed. 4. Vending machine. Now I don't mean a mobile sweet shop here. A Medibot would have a small refrigerated storage module to dispense cool, clean, fresh drinking water. I always found that the water jugs supplied always leaked, wasn't fresh after been sitting out for a while, and left over water was disposed of which I felt was a waste. The Medibot would dispense, pass the cup to a patient with a manipulator arm, and autonomously refill its water storage module when needed. It could also store chilled healthy food such as fruit or yogurts. Again, if a patient is offed a yogurt and it is not eaten in an hour or so, it would be thrown out. More unnecessary waist. 5. Entertainment. This to me is just as important as everything else I have mentioned. Hospital can be a lonely and boring places to stay in, especially for long periods. A Medibot would have an on-board TV and radio, built in web browser, it could play games with the patient, and it could also hold a conversation using an artificial intelligent program. This final option is probably not everybody's cup of tea as some adults may not be comfortable talking to a machine, but I believe some children would like this. Lots of kids like robots, FACT. So a child interacting with a robot would give them much needed company, entertain them, help take their mind of their medical condition, and ultimately put a smile on their face, and that can only be a good thing. Conclusion. A Medibot would not be intended to replace medical staff, but rather assist them so staff can get on with more important tasks and unburden them with doing less important jobs. Medical staff would be less overwhelmed doing multiple tasks leading to more care and less mistakes, and patients would get better care over all. A implementation of such a robot could be one per bed, one per bay, or what ever is required per ward. They could be called to a bed using a bedside call button by a patient and instantly attend to a patients non critical needs. Also, as I mentioned earlier, a Medibot would be ideal to work in isolation wards and could be easily sterilised afterwards. So that's my vision of how robots could change the would, at least count towards changing our world for the better. Steve G. :)

I picked up the Dev Kit right before x-mas.. went through the training, everything we smooth.. until the end.. that's when I started think what's next? Why not add on to the Dev training that shows/trains you on how to make a quick bot... that's what I'm doing, I've seen a few post around asking for the same, what's next.. So this is what I recommend.. Project Name: Dev Servo Bot Parts needed to print, Buy.. Hexapod Body Extension Cube Lever Servo - 180 Degrees Continuous Rotation Servo Hexapod Foot (modified - Shorten) Contruction Lever Servo - 180 Degrees to build arms on each side.. or add a Camera or Sensor! EZ-B v4 Camera,Ultrasonic Distance Sensor Use 2 wheels on Continuous Rotation Servo. connect them to Hexpad Body connect Hexapod Foot (modified - Shorten) to the front of the Hexapod Body to hold up front

I want to build a beautiful looking robot that can actually perform household tasks. Ive got the design, the printers and the programming experience. I lack the hardware experience. I'm hoping these kits can help me generate a fair proof of concept using my design and these components. but I'm not sure they are strong enough for what I need them for. I was going to buy a pepper and just gut him and use his parts for my robot, but he doesn't come out unitl February, and I'm impatient.

I mentor high school students to become future Engineers. One of the students years is making his own quad copter drone to track an R/C car. Sort of a scaled down surveillance camera. Your diy kits are the best building blocks to focus on the overall project and not get bogged down in the piecing together of random parts.

A robot that is an All-Around Helper. It can help my clean with a pull behind vacuum/steam cleaner; filter the air; put stuff away; throw things away; and sort laundry by color and size. It can also entertain me by playing music, talking to me, play games ( like hide-and-go-seek: it can hide, count to a designated number, and also find me), it can also do household chores, such as feed and water pets and plants. Also, be able to "guard" my house, by using the camera to detect, record, and send any motion that has happened while I was out of the house. It can also just keep me company. And for the paranormal lovers, it can have emf sensors, and other sensors used for paranormal activity.

ZooBoy318

A robot that will be able to entertain my cats by moving around and by flipping and hiding a string. It would also throw objects like ping pong balls for the cats to chase.

mntntrekng

My robot idea is a robot that assists disabled, or physically/mentally incapable people by doing jobs they can't do, such as vacuuming, carrying things, to something as simple as changing the TV channel. It gives these people a chance to live on there own without the need of constant help/supervision. The Bot will have arms to move/open things, a camera for navigation and face recognition(don't want to take the box to the wrong person!), as well as a strong sturdy base to carry stuff on. A relative of mine suffered an amputation at an old age and currently needs help 3 times a day, with almost constant supervision. This bot could help her get back and functioning like she used to!

I see a lot of people (from kids to grown-ups) who want to solder but find it difficult to master. After all, I myself have not been particularly great at this art (or is it science?). It occurred to me it would be great if I build a hobby/home robot that could be taught to master soldering. It would greatly help those wanting to build electronic parts from various components (including for microcontrollers). Obviously, vision would be a very significant aspect, as well as the coordinated motion of a multi-jointed dual-arm robot. I expect this to be a difficult project (need to develop simulation of robot kinematics and dynamics I expect), but the end product will be very cool I am sure and very worthwhile.

Home Healthcare Robotic Assistant Background synopsis-This is something I have been talking about with my grandmother and grandfather. He and she developed a memory issue where taking medication , being on a schedule and testing their blood sugar on time has become problematic. I have been experimenting with options to help my grandparents like a tablet with alarm reminders for medications and I can send messages to remind my grandmother to eat or test her blood sugar. I realize a robotic companion could do many of these things in between my classes and job. My idea summary- An elderly and special needs robot to monitor basic vitals, record them, dispense daily meds ect. I will explain more details.... 1. Tracks medication schedule and administers presorted medications that have been sorted by a home health provider or family member. 1 or 2 weeks of medication presorted on hand for one or two patients. (Elderly couple) 2. Schedule and remind user to test blood sugar and also record the results. 3.wireless bluetooth or wifi wrist band- patient where's a wireless band the robot monitors , heart monitor and blood O2 monitor. ( both light sensor readable) A "press and hold" dial 911 button on the wrist. , the robot daily the authorities and the speakerphone comes on for them to communicate with the elderly. The robot starts the first 5 to 10 seconds of the call reporting a elderly emergency and the home address before turning speakerphone on. -or- alternatively there can be a thump sensor on the robot the elderly places to check heart rate and Oz Sensor. 4. Remote view/ monitor and record feature the robot should have a screen that can display a remote present feed that a family member or Healthcare provider can use to communicate with the elderly. The elderly or special needs may mentally checkout and not pick up the phone , this allows the family member to quickly check on their loved one even if they cannot answer the phone , this is excellent for checking on "false alarms" or when the elderly patients do not hear the phone ring. Life assistance feature- -wake up elderly -Remind them to eat at a ideal interval -remind them to contact Dr when needed -Read messages out loud from a twitter feed or similar option. Record phone voice mail and remind -patients of missed calls as they may not remember to check or make calls back. -other scheduled events like hair appointments , remind the elderly to get ready or take a shower. Mobile? No need the robot does not need to be mobile , just have a avatar in each main room. A two axis neck , Web cam and ez robot camera on the main unit. Realistically a main unit in the living area , then one satellite on the husband and wife's nite stand is a great start. Up to 5 because that is how many ezb can connect to one instance of ez builder. The "robot" can switch from one room to another rooms avatar based on what room the person is in. A motion detector can be used to trigger room to room movement. if anyone has PRACTICAL ideas to add let me know. Take in mind experimentation is with live people and must take care not to interfere with life quality or they will not appreciate or welcome the Healthcare assistance. My email: Kandyred@gmail.com

I already adapted a baby monitoring camera to a rock crawler R/C car to use in an old highs chool to inspect steam and water pipes in the tunnels throughout the building. I was tired of crawling through the dirty and dark tunnels to look for leaks. I would like to remove the radio control receiver and replace it with the EZ WIFI controller, and be able to perform periodic inspections remotely at any time. The combined servo controller and camera server seem like the perfect solution. I am thinking about adding a temperature sensor to inspect the function of steam traps also (temperature going in should be much higher than temperature coming out, or the trap is stuck open wasting steam energy). A humidity sensor will also give me an indication that there might be a water leak somewhere. The distance sensor can help me avoid obsticles while navigating the tunnels from a remote location. I think your products will give me a great solution!

Roof drain inspection and cleanup: I live in a house under a large pine tree that sheds a lot of needles at points in time. The foam roof has both flat and slightly sloping surfaces. I am 73 with ailing knees so going up and down a ladder to check the state of the drains is not fun and is becoming a bit dangerous for me. I have been thinking about a robot that I could put up on the roof either directly or by way of a lift. The robot would navigate around some pipes on the roof or even climb over one of the pipes. I plan to add a camera to the bot and at least one remote controlled arm for cleaning around the drain and possibly lift and clean the drain caps (currently wire baskets).

My proposal for EZRobot is to configure it as robotic arm to explain young kids Trigonometry. I truly believe that using EZROBOT for explaining its forward/reverse kinematics would teach them in a very effective way this important -an sometimes difficult- Math topic. EZROBOT-Math-Enabler would show kids that Math is not so boring and in fact is really fun and would definitively prepare them for major endeavors in Robotics. There may be other proposals out there for robotic arms. I think all of them are valid and just want to emphasize mine is for Kids Education in a major STEM topic. Sincerely jD

i have a 5 1/2 foot rental robot and was wondering if your software and hardware could make it Autonomous robot maybe to avoid stuff in its path i can send pics if you like to see it if you could help me with parts i would advertise for you by putting your logo on my robot when its out on rental thanks

Hey there, I'm mainly writing you this because I would LOVE a discount. But you know why? It's because I'm a stand up comedian beginning my own project; a Teddy Ruxpin robot that I want to hook up to twitter. On stage, any time someone denies climate change, it speaks the tweet in an evil voice. He's going to be called "Evil Teddy Ruxpin" Depending on the Wifi situation I may have to fake the results but based on real tweets; Anyway; I've posted in your forum and I'm getting loads of advice so anticipate ordering some kit soon :) James.

I have an idea to make a robot to take fruits from trees without hurt those trees. It will looks like a mechanic monkey mixed with a spider. with it's sensors it can decide what fruit is good enought to take and keep the green ones on the tree. The size of this robot varies according to the size of the tree.

Tracker

Using an electric wheelchair base, with a sabertooth motor control, to create an outdoor security bot.

I'm a mom buying this for my 12 year old son for Christmas. I only hope since I can't get in touch with you that I'll get it for Christmas.

Bridget

I would like a robot that could act as my secretary/personal assistant! Someone to tell me what appointments I had in the day, what time it was, and what my goals were as well!

Allis

I want to build a cleaning robot. It wash floors, clean tubs, windows, toilets, etc. I feel there is to many dancing robots and not enough useful ones.

antv311

Like the one I'm working on now, my 'Laundry Bot' which will help bring a load of laundry to and from. This is helpful for those with back or other mobility issues. May even be used for groceries or other items hard to lift around. It will be simple remote control along with sensors for safety. Making it voice activated would also be nice touch.

RoboHappy

i want to build a pet-like robot for people who are not ready to take care of real pets

SM

I would like to build a robot that helps people with a hearing disability. It should not only detect sounds but also show the direction from where the sound is coming. So it would be nice if there was a sound sensor for your kit with directional capabilities. Then my robot could do video tracking and point in the direction of the sound. (Doorbel , phone , something dropping , pets and so on...)

Appeltje

I want to build a robot that can preform basic tasks such as reading out loud, writing, helping with school work, and even helping out in the kitchen. I feel that robots capable of doing these things would cause more people to accept the idea of domestic robots.

sidui

I am working on a robotic arm that, with voice command, will find a specified object, pick it up and do what ever the command is. For example, a person with limited mobility might need a drink of water, how great would it be to have the robotic arm locate the glass water, pick it up and hold it out for the person to the water from a straw and them put it back. Yes, there are robotic arms out there that can do this, but at $50,000 not many people can afford them. My robotic arm was 3D printed from open source files and with the electronics and EZBv4 it has cost about about $300 (so far). There are also several kits for these arm. I think that coming up with EZ-Robot programs to carry out tasks that these arms are capable of doing is my main goal. That programming could then run any robotic arm.

bhouston

My idea is to build a new small humanoid robot that my grandkids can relate to. I will use EZ Robot lever servos and rotation servos.

Steve S

A robot that can be assistive in remote health care with wheels on tracks for quicker movement and a head on an elevator sort of that allows the user to remotely sense the temperature and color of a pacient over the side of a bed and then a hand that can select from numbered bays to give the person a specific medicine. More over, it can do this all over either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Dal

when I think of robot I think of it as, an object that can reduce human effort. I would like to make some sort of drone that could help fire fighters. Maybe something that can lift a custom made fire extinguisher, which can be controlled away from the fire. This will allow fire fighters to extinguish fire in hard to reach places and it can protect anyone stuck in a building with fire. We could place a Wi-Fi camera to control the drone and guide it in the right direction. This robot could reduce the risk of injury and make lives much simpler. That's basically what I think of when it comes to making a robot.

pepe

It seems to me that all humanoids priced within my budget are very slow at getting around. I would like to build a humanoid robot that will use a Roomba as transport to move himself around faster. The humanoid would be able to hop on the Roomba after calling it to his proximity and direct the Roomba (voice recognition and other means) to do various task or simply travel to specified locations. The increase in travel speed would be useful for various tasks and there would be numerous other benefits in having the two robots working together. The humanoid could simply attach itself to the Roomba in some fashion if getting itself completely on board is too complicated, but I think that would not be as much of challenge. Island fox

Island fox

I want a robot that will corral my dogs and guide them to the dog door to ensure they do their business outside. Also, one that plays fetch interactively would be great as well!!

TAMCOFARMS

Idea #1, Roli would make a great MINE hunter. He could go into a mine field and locate mines and put flags where they are. Not sure if he needs anything else. I have never searched for mines. Idea #1a, Six could also do it , if he has arms to put flags. And neck add-on to move camera closer to ground.

jdebay

A robot that travels on 2 overhead ropes or wires, which allows it to move in any direction. The robot would carry a camera on a pan and tilt system allowing it to capture footage from any angle. Doing a live production of a large area is a pain, but a camera with free movement and remotely operated would allow it to be controlled by the video switch operator and give an extra angle without an extra camera operator. This could also allow the camera to move to pre set positions and provide coverage for moving events.

cowsley

My idea is a compact tele-presence robot that folds up into a mailing tube. You can mail it anywhere in the world there is cell service and the person receiving it can easily deploy it by pulling a handle and shaking it "awake". You could mail it to grandma and without having any computer or tech experience she can be talking to you in seconds after receiving it. The interface at your end can run on anything from a laptop to your phone and would allow you to interact with the environment and people wherever the robot is.

atorres

A completely automated robot to replace the personal medical alarm. Current medical alarms systems still require some form of human interaction (or lack of interaction after a specified time) to activate them, which may result in delays to delivery of medical assistance. The idea is that an alert will be sent out if the owner is observed to fall, or adopt an unusual position (ie lying on the floor). Sensors (ie Kinect) can be intergrated into the abode, or be attached to a mobile drone that follows the owner around. Other sensors that may also assist in sending out an alert would include heart rate and respiratory monitors and temperature sensors. Another useful robot would be one that helps pick up people from the floor after a floor. Would definitely save a lot of ambulance call outs. Obviously, all of this is way above my pay grade / level of expertise, so I will be satisfied with building a wall-e with Skype functions to keep my wife company when she has to work interstate.

sungsta

Design a robot to place dental implants. The robot can be attached to a 3d printed surgical guide that was fabricated with virtual treatment plan data. Yes I'm a surgeon and the only thing missing is the robot!

I'm converting a Hasbro R2D2 to with EZ Robot to teach my kids about robotics. I plan to utilize remote voice commands, the mobile app, facial recognition and remote control.

Savall21

I have a rather large outdoor entertainment area, so a robotic platform drinks cooler that is autonomous and response to simple voice commands, face recognition/drink selection would be an added bonus.

Hello ez robot I have a idea of creating holographic tiny robot for education purpose which shall teach u as a vitual teacher

tushit

The more people have a positive interaction with robots, the more robots will have a growing place in society. My robot will focus on entertaining people by conversing, having eye contact, using human gestures, tossing a ball for the dog, and playing requested music. Security will be a background function. I'm planning on using multiple microprocessors for added intelligence and to separate some functions.

GregW

Intead of artificial intelligence, Why not intelligence? Why not live? I want to build a machine which thinks and feels. I want to change people, so that robots and people can work together. I want build a robot that will save lives, If you add a spinal cord to a droid, give it both voluntary and involuntary sensor spikes, and program it to feel those or teach it that those are pains, aches, chills. Maybe it will become alive..

If one could do my home work and go to school for me and tell me what happend and the robot I chose is JD to do it.:):):)!!!

ljwiebers

i want to create robot dragons that people can actually fly on I've based these dragons of the dragons from how to train your dragon. it could also be a submarine or shoot fire like the next gourd dog for your house.

my friends

My robot idea, I would love a robot that is your best friend an your personal guardian that goes wherever you go. A robot that can both assist you on your every day task being clean your room, preparing dinner, help you study an so on. Also in any case of an emergency or need of protection the robot would be able to assist you, its like having your twin by your side to pick you up. I would love that the robot had the capability to run the every day task when is with you using GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi, Data and so on to be able to lock homes turn lights off call someone even book your flight a robot that it's personalize for you an only responds to you or does you have allow to via programming. Even Got The Name For The Model- GA (Guardian Angel) the robot can be nickname Angel.

mrmike3300

I like a sentry robot equipped with sensors that can identify human intruders, record audio and video. Knows the address of its assigned area and can notify its owner or authorities, with wifi capabilities.

Ikeman

Kids Talk Radio Science is going to take robots on tour to the California County Offices of Education. We have an educational project called The Occupy Mars the Learning Adventures. It is all about kids pretending to work with robots on Mars. We would like to collaborate with you in a joint marketing effort. We could help each other. Feel free to give me a call.

Kids Talk Radio

I would like a robot that can simply patrol my house and make sure things are OK. It can detect, smoke, fire, flooding or gas leaks and warn me, whether I'm home or not. It can listen for intruders when I'm not home and use face tracking to quietly take pictures and upload them to the cloud and to me on my phone. I would like to be able to securely access it remotely from a web browser or smartphone app so that I can manually drive it anywhere in my house and see through it's camera and hear through it's microphone. It can let me see and talk to my pets or intruders. Also, it can find it's own charging station and recharge before going back on patrol.

Tachyon

My idea for a robot is a medical robot that is designed to enter the rooms of contagious patients and deliver items such as their lunch, and other patient needs. The robot would have a camera and screen on it allowing the physician or nurse to interact with the patient. The robot would be a sealed system allowing for cleaning and sterilization of parts.

ProfFate

I've always wanted to integrate a GPS auto-pilot system (used in farm equipment) with a fully automated snow blower or snowplow. This could be done in two sizes to accommodate for road clearance and residential sidewalks. The beauty of this equipment is the savings in wages for man hours for snow removal in the early morning hours. As well as the systems can be deployed in high numbers to address heavy snowfall situations, no need to staff multiple `emergency' employees to be on call for such occasions. Equipment; - The GPS systems come with two positioning input, cellular and satellite. When signal is lost from one you can switch to the other. - Power system would be hybrid; gasoline or diesel powered generator & hydraulic pump, battery charge controller/inverter system - On-board navigation system - And of course the snow blower or snow plow! So of course the snow blower/plow would have to be equipped with sensors to locate foreign objects as well as heat sensing for possible life forms in the way. All moving parts would be shielded for safety reason, of course! ;) Any hoo, that's my idea!!! Contact me if you care to discuss further, Cheers,

dchailler

I plan to make a robot that can follow people around and allow remote sight of the people all day long

Building the B9 robot from the tv show Lost in Space! With EZ-Robot, it is now possible to build a childhood memory!

bobjacon

I don't have really any wild ideas. I wanted to stick with more realistic ideas... I think EZRobot's idea to go with the EZbit connectors is a great idea. I'd personally would like to see you guys put together some sort of mega developers kit that would include various EZbit connectors, more servos, difference choice of wheels, etc... I'd also like to see some new robot designs and maybe some more types of EZ Bit connectors.

Richard R

An underwater robot would be a great addition to our submarines! Instead of having a manipulator arm with limited reach, a robot might do a better job. Check www.uboatworx.com to see which submarines I'm talking about.

Maykel

Terraformers! Swarms of them. Each one with little more than a few instructions, but collectively make up all components required for inter-planetary transport, deployment of equipment, and construction of facilities to support human life on other planetoids. While DJ Sures would likely be Admiral of the EZ-Robot fleet, I would be Commodore.

feganmeister

My ideal robot is a home companion robot with connected features and tele-presence enabled. this would enable me to roam around the house while I am travelling while being able to monitor the going ons around the house. It should have some basic object manipulation ability, in order for me to interact with the world around it. Perhaps help to feed the pets too?

kindredd

Hi Ez team, I will turn my roli in a robot home surveillance, motion detection, video recording, sending pictures by email and / or SMS. With control of the robot via internet and I think a windows phone application. I am a .Net developer, c #

TheRat

A robot you can interact with it. ( almost like Siri ) but better. It will help old people making them feel comfortable, talking to them, and been able to use them as an assistant, for example in some cases, the patient is contagious and doctors can't help. Well here comes the robot, it will keep the status of the patient, and incase something happens, real doctors will then come in. It would help saving doctors lives against very contagious viruses. Thats it :)

Dv1974

I am waiting for new Insight headset at http://emotiv.com/store/insight-detail/ (new one is more portable and uses dry sensors no special cream etc) to create mind controlled robot. The application are endless - from gays like Stephen Hawking etc. Just a challenge. Regards

Autonomous Hexapod Robot able to collect data and store it as artificial memory kit from www.lynxmotion.com. Pod A. However I have couple question, can I use HS - 645 servo with EZ robot brain, and couple question about the battery for the servos. Can I use the lipo battery foe 18servo ?

Mr.K

I would like an autonomous AI mobile tracked robot with personality that uses an Android Cell Phone to run the AI software Vision and Navigation ,interfacing the cell phone "brain" to a micro controller board hooked to sonar sensors , maybe laser range finder and camera allowing feedback to the cell phone AI which modifies the Robots Actions........................... PS: you mention AI on your web page but I do not see any quick links to AI Software...

Rocket Scientist 1

My Robot idea is to make my home or work place completely automated with all kind of robots like JD humanoid, NAO, JIBO, Asimo and many more like security job robot, cleaning robot, Automatic sensor, reminders, Alarms, updates, servants, mingle with family members and also helping to proceed further with wi-fi connectivity and also entertainment at home. Giving suggestions at my workplace and stays with me forever. Making Robots with all kind of these tasks performable. Each and every Robot Should be a super fine and latest technology acquired one. I wanna Make every thing automated with robots. So by the end i can make a Robot world. i want to become an expert in this field. This was my Big idea for robot building.

My idea is for a robot to help interactively teach children in a classroom setting.

JustinRatliff

Dear Ez-b, my idea for a robot is a robot that can help you in your home. such as cooking , vacuum cleaning , window cleaning and that all sort of household cleaning. but also a friend. where you can do fun things. also that he can be a host , when you have a party. also if you need help , he can help you. such as repairing your car or bike. also that you can learn from him if you do not understand something what you wand to know. Well that was it. it is very difficult to build this robot. but it would be very cool best regards Michael

RoboMicke

to build a robotic with abilities like ironman. also to develop a robotic hand that have similar flexible like a human one.

Romel

I too would like a terminator friend, but for now I think your bots are pretty awesome. I could see a use for a robot that could inspect crawl spaces and other dark and potentially dangerous places and provide video surveillance to help determine if you have snakes or other dangerous creatures taking up residence. Another variant could be used for storm sewer inspections. Another possibility would be a robot that could monitor a room or act as a door or perimeter guard. Maybe some kind of cool laser grid could be used for monitoring... - b

My Robot Idea Would Be to have a robot that can hook up to a security system and have face recognition and only allows people who it know into the house and if its not somebody it know it becomes a security bot so that it would work as its own security system

defrancesca88

my idea is simple but very useful. It's a little box with tracks and claws that can be used as a helperbot.

My idea to help robots change the world is that I think robots could be used to protect people.

BeckStew

Robots to monitor and control drone traffic. Launch drone from robot to get aerial view of surrounding terrain.

codylynx

my robot idea is to make a working arm (similar to the robot helping hand that was in the email), i have already made 5 or 6 paper straw EZ-Robots, but I only have one controller and it is v3, I am constantly running out of servos and i really could use another controller. I especially want to get more of my straw robots onto the EZ-Robot youtube channel. Thanks MrRobotGuy (my youtube)

Security robot, front door announcer, general duties, etc. Hopefully won't take to long to master. ??

ALT3R3D

Create an affordable robot that can shovel the snow off of walkways and make it work on stairs too. Available to the average consumer at major retailers. The current ones on the market cost over $1000, some even cost $8000 and up, which is over priced for most people. It would be a dream come true if EZ-Robot can create waterproof servos with a waterproof case, and create instructional videos that describe to anyone how to make their own RC shovel using an RC car already on the market and make it compatible with EZ-B or EZ-Robot can create a modular custom kit for waterproof robots. Share the enjoyment of plowing snow from the computer with everyone, and the future will truly be a robot-friendly place! ;)

Dan S Robo315tech

The robot will open the front door for people and great them, and get things from the fridge

EZ-AI Module: Would be good to have A.I.M.S. AI Processor self contain in one module, integrated with EZ-B. Doing away with a PC or Smartphone to control. Programming can be done on a PC and download to EZ-AI Module. With a Self-contained unit, it can do almost anything independently (with WiFi), retrieving vast amount of information easily.

I want a robot that can perform the laundry cycle on one floor. Put clothing in washing machine, then drier, then do the folding.

JSaad

I would like to build a robot that would interact with my kids, teach them lessons in math and English, be a friend to interact and learn with. It would need to recognize each of them and keep progress as they reach new plateaus.

robtbldr

A social robot that is able to interact with humans. They talk and listen to you. If they are with a child they are able to grab a toy like a doll or a car and mimic what the child is doing to seem as if the robot is playing with them. Also a big social feature would be for a robot to help make decisions like should we watch Simpsons of family guy and the robot would give a suggestion.

A.Bautista

A face recognition app for my robot that will tell me (or my children) when it's time to get a haircut.

Since the dawn of man, we have applied science to achieve the automaton, the mechanical man, or the robot. As technology advances, we continue to dream of a future with mechanical machines protecting us, helping us and taking care of us. When we stop to look back at how far we’ve come and observe what we have today, it’s easy to see how great tomorrow will be. I’m very proud of the ezrobot community and the advances we have made in robotics.

I asked to have this section created to hear your amazing ideas. Because ezrobot is committed to making your dreams a reality.
