Hello guys and girls!
My name is Adam and I am extremely new to robotics. Other than a general love for it I've had my whole life, I'm not sure why only now I have taken the plunge and decided to give it a go myself. It's my birthday on the 13th of June and I'm hoping to get a EZ Robot JD Humanoid.
Now I have a million and one questions I want to ask but regardless of the answers I'm fairly confident this is the robot I want and this is the robot I will get. So firstly, I would like to ask a fairly general question about the limitations people have come across with the EZ-B v4? it seems like a powerful controller but I would still like to hear about anything people have attempted to do and been unable to achieve, be it skill level or the EZ-B itself being the obstacle.
secondly I would like to ask, what kind of experience anyone has with Artificial intelligence and the EZ-B? I'm not talking about trying to build my own Chappie or my own Sunny (iRobot), but I would love to ultimately be able to add some kind of basic personality to this robot and have it be able to respond to some basic chit-chat (somewhat like Cleverbot or Smarterchild). Would this be possible? Would I have to code it all from scratch and could that even be done? and lastly, could I link my JD to my laptop and then have it feed me information from the internet? maybe using text-to-speech and a Third-party app like CleverBot itself?
I'll look forward to finding out JD's and my own limitations where all of this is concerned and any feedback, advice, help or just a hello would be appreciated!
