A Youtube Channel Called Reel Robots
So what is next? As some of you know I've been throwing around the idea of a robotics Youtube channel. The notion of giving back my knowledge to the community via YouTube is intriguing. At the very least, the channel will result in a repository of videos showing current robot technology, 3D tools, and how I to use them to build robots. The channel also allow me to explore the hundreds of robot ideas in my head. Every robot build will consist of several episodes to complete (approx 6 to 8 episodes) and will be released bi-monthly. The channel will be rebranded as "REEL ROBOTS" ("REEL" as in a movie reel, as most of my robots, will look as though they stepped out of a movie) and will launch in May 2020.
Robots are expensive to build as you all know, and support will be paramount. The success of this endeavor will in part be by interest, viewer participation, sponsors, merch, affiliate links, and Patreon members. If you are not yet a subscriber, please stop by my YouTube channel and subscribe its free! .
All the best,

Silicone, Ugh! I bet she gets really uncomfortably hot under all that.
Fantastic scanner, software...
As always, I guess you need a reason to purchase, great for your line of work and needs...
Thanks for the video
Everything about your video is amazing. I want one!!!! I don't know why yet, but I want one.
I bet your niece is very excited to have her avatar built with this scanner and her very talented uncle. Do me now!!
Thanks so much for sharing this with us. So much fun.
Using the tools within photoshop, I could then move the "camera" through the image, turning a 2d piece of art into 3d image you can fly through. Then I added bits of movement in the air like dust and snow, then I added birds to one segment...too give the image a since of movement. I should do a video on how I create them!
3D scanners are a great tool for doing reverse engineering, as an example, working on the new Alan, I was able to quickly scan the EZB and different integrated circuit boards so I can have stand ins in my 3d programs, so I can check to see if there is enough room for them, or to change their orientations with in the space to see what works best. Nothing pretty just quick and dirty. (see below)
the old 3D scanner in the Kinect was pretty cool although it was impossible to calibrate and never closed off the image very well.
As for the metaverse we have been waiting for years and I am not sure if we are any closer. I tried to move this forward back from 2006-2010 and never made a lot of traction. I was the lead architect for IEEE virtual world interoperability standards. Like the internet I didn’t believe we would ever have a single company run the metaverse (sorry Meta) so we needed a way to move content between worlds (ID, Avatars, Inventory, Currency etc) for a seamless user experience. We needed an agreed upon interoperability standard to transfer assets and secure content and digital rights.
Maybe time to revisit this, especially now we have blockchain and NFTs.
I had included bitcoin in my High level Architecture :-)
All proceeds goto building more robots! Happy Holidays.
these are very futuristic robots very cool . am surprized not to see alan on the t-shirts ?
any idea about making moveble figurines ?
yes am still doing some robotics and printing . am stil working on the inmoov hip for using the HDD servo's ,
from ez robot . the problem i have is , i cant seem to be able to get the parts fit correctly . its mostly 1 or 2 ,
mm short or to small . so many try's . also ordering parts is becomming expencive on chipping and custom cost.
to belgium . another dark cloud will become a huge problem and thats the cost off heating in my house ( room ) .
it goes from 130 euro to 430 euro a month + the end bill will be 2100 euro and this is for one room off 5x 10 meter .
its crazy . so thats comes with alot off doubs and thinking . normal i dont have the possebility to survive .
i have 950 euro per month . 400 euro for rent and 430 for heat . so i have 70 euro for food , crazy .
but luckly i have a GF who has same as me . i can still do some robotics . i post a video soon what am trying to do .
thank you for asking .
that will be awesome .
