build a humaniod robot that is 5 feet tall and can work.
also must be able to:
do common household stuff
to win: must send pic and video to me of your robot completeing taskes
Just one point that everyone has hinted at but not really said: You have to have built this bot first before you can make it a challenge.
Ok, here's the thing. generally speaking most of the members here don't even have a rolling robot that is able to do those tasks (and I'm not talking about walking and sitting). I always say go one step at a time. Build a rolling robot. Add a gripper to grab objects. Add a speech recognition chip to be able to give it commands. Add a MP3 chip or a text to speech chip for talk back. Add vision. Program the robot to clean the room picking socks, toys, empty beer cans, whatever. Build a walking robot. Add balance sensors to it. Add speech chips. Add vision. Then program it to do house chores. If all works, go bigger.
I do however have a 5 foot animatronic sketelton that I made that I use to talk to the kids on Halloween - The head has nice movement and it can talk either from an MP3 player or manual control.
So, first prize is a gazillion dollars!
Yeah! OK! Bring on the Robot Apocalypse why doncha?
