Make MAKI! Your Personal Humanoid Robot From 3D-printed Parts (+VIDEO)




Hello Robo, an Atlanta-based company, have presented their new project at Kickstarter, a 3D-printable android, designed to be modelled using a desktop 3D printer. Made to interact with humans, this high quality robotic platform is affordable, approachable and accessible. Designers’ main aim is to make robotics more accessible to people worldwide; they believe that every high school should have a robotics program to help educate and inspire young potential engineers. Now, with a desktop 3D printer, PC, internet connection and off-the-shelf hobby electronics, any school or anyone, can have access to advanced robotic platforms. Researchers will get a great opportunity to spend less time prototyping and more time developing useful applications. Making use of readily available electronics, easy to print designs, and open source software, MAKI can be printed it in any color combination you wish for under $500. MAKI consists of six AX-12 Dynamixel Actuators from Robotis, an Arbotix Robocontroller from Vanadium Labs, ZigBee Wireless and a USB Webcam from Microsoft. It is compatible with popular software such as ROS, Pypose, RoboRealm and can be also used with Arduino IDE.
