Jon’s BrainBot

June 5, 2007 at 12:29 pm Leave a comment

Jon Hylands has made a lot of progress recently on his robotic biped “BrainBot”! BrainBot has two functioning cameras on its ‘head’, to help it react to it’s surroundings, and also make it have that cool “I want one!” effect. BrainBot is funded by the Brain Engineering Lab in New Hampshire. Jon will possibly have full kits coming out later this year, to modify your own Bioloid to function like BrainBot, for researchers (they will be to expensive for most hobbyists). BrainBot weighs about 3 kg, and has pressure sensitive feet and grippers, AX-12 servos, pan and tilt stereo vision head, dual two-axis manipulators, a total of 24 degrees of freedom, a high bandwidth WI-FI interface to a PC, and a six axis IMU for balance.

An older BrainBot design, notice the load cell (pressure sensor) in the right foot:

RoboSavvy One of the best places to buy a Bioloid

Trossen Robotics Another one of the best places to buy a Bioloid (They ship from the USA, so if your in the USA you can receve it fast)
