Smile, Mr Robot :)
February 11, 2009
As written earlier here in my blog, I am trying to make a robot that will take snapshots of itself.
I have made some laser guiding system (I think), and some cool docking so it can hook up a trailer with a camera on.
However, I figured that if the robot is taking pictures of itself, it should be able to smile to the camera :)
What is on the tiny shot is just how I think I managed to get a smile from a robot, interestingly to me, it appears that most animatronics either strive to look like a robot, look like something mean, or look human / natural. I wonder why noone (aparently) thought of ways to make them things just.. smile :D
It can also tilt the eyes, and the whole thing is going to be mounted on a servo, facing the camera (I hope)
