As awesome as Nao is, it takes the fun out of making a robot.

That said, if anyone wants to send me one to play with I wouldn't complain!
Very cool for sure ...That's the goal of a lot of DIY robot builders here on the Forum! With EZ -B V4 we're close! its the mechanical engineering that's tuff:)

Yep. Well, not tough provided you have the money and tools available to build something like this. Maybe one day (if I can stop spending all my money on fast cars).

I'd love to get something like Nao without the brain and see just how comparable it is to the EZ-B, I guess I need to start saving for a JD:D
I hoping to get something better than nao out of my robot. It's been sitting here doing nothing but collecting dust for a while, but once I get everything ready, I may not come out of my house for a few days messing with him. :D
my jd chest and feet lies on the drawing board.soon to be printed.:D:D:D:D
nao blue one.
Well as an owner of a Nao I figured i would chime in. I have only had him for a few days now but he is pretty impressive.
I wish there was a little more online about programming him but I am figuring it out.
So far I have been able to get him to recognize my face and say my name when he does along with other things. I haven't started programming specific moves yet but will get to it.
My wife things he is pretty cool for sure. Naos life is a program where he does automous programs and reactions. It certainly makes him "alive".
Here is a picture of him before the Super Bowl the other day. He wasn't too happy when our team lost.

@ings175 ....well thanks for chiming in! Try and keep the Forum updated with programing progress and autonomous activities..I know I would be interested:)
Yeah...very interested in his the hands work...maybe some pics or videos? Porfavor,....
This is going to sound weird but I can honestly thank ez robot for the motivation to get Nao. Ez robot showed me how far robots have come and how cool and fun they are. Once I saw Nao on Eastbound and Down I became even more robot obsessed. JD was going to be my version of Nao until I found the Hovis Eco. Around the time I made my purchase of the Eco I found someone willing to sell their Nao.
I knew how rare they were in the open market and what the standard retail price was and simply couldn't say no to having one of the most advanced humanoid robots on the market.
So after clearing out a lot of my personal stuff that had been collecting dust I was able to make this happen.

I haven't messed with his hands too much. I have been able to get the new software downloaded, proceeded to overload him and crash his system, factory reset him and then did it again. I probably shouldn't have had him try to run all of his programs at startup. He has a little bit of a learning curve and hopefully I won't crash him again. But at least I know how to fix him now.
ings175 glad you found the NAO & EZ.:D:D:D
Thanks for sharing. Please make a video, of NAO sitting and talk to you.
