Suitable Mini PC To Support ARC Software

What mini PC would you recommend to use with ARC for a robot?
I have been reading about Kangaroo mini PC, LattePanda, Raspberry PI, MeLE PCG35 GLK.
I like the Kangaroo PC but everything I read abut it is 5 years old.

You can be the only Pepper robot owner.  I remember when people shared there work and or scripts.  Times have changed since the EZ-robot days.  Great job on your robot!  Can't what to see a video of it working.

Cheers

I really haven't finished my build - despite appearances, and I haven't done any programming for it as yet. 
It is very difficult to share a scratch built project. There are so many aspects aside from the 3D printing of those 3D files in that link I sent you.
As an aside, I knew nothing about robots until I was 60 years old. I have been at it for 4 years now and it has been a struggle all the way.

All the best with your endeavours.

Wowsers - i would never have guessed you to be 60+ with our conversations! Good for you to keep your brain active and accomplish such a fantastic goal. Hopefully my mind will follow in your foot steps lol

Afcorson, at 63 myself and just getting started with robots I understand how you feel completely.  I have so many questions about the hardware and the programming.   I have been in IT all my life starting out as a programmer but not for controlling hardware.   I have always tinkered with RC hobbies so that has helped some with my robot build.  Oh and learning 3D printing at the same time has also been a challenge of its own.   I think my wife is sorry she got me the 3D printer for my birthday because it is the gift that keeps on costing her money.  LOL.   Anyway your Robot looks great and I can't wait to see it completed.  As soon as I can get a video for my build I will be posting my project here for others.

my apologies @afcorson,  I spoke without thinking and did not mean to be crossed at you.

If in the future if you get the parts figured out I would be interested in buying the STL's if you would sale them down the road sometime.  Or sale the completed parts.  my email is mikeerne2007@yahoo.com if you are interested.

PS. I'm all so 60+ and retired on a fixed income.  Currently I do not have a printer.  Can you share which 3d printer you have?  Thank you!

Hey! Old guys rule!! I'll be 65 in a few weeks and have been retired for over three years. Working on my robot and programing keeps me sharp, engaged and feeling involved. Learning and trying new things is a blessing. 

@DJ, your funny. Good luck in keeping your mind working until you reach the ripe old age that us old codgers here has attained. The way you work your mind at such a high level you will burn it out by then. LOL.xD

As mentioned in my comment on Feb 17, the fingers are cut-down InMoov fingers.

You can split STL into separate parts (sometimes) using the freeware PrusaSlicer 2.3.3. Using this software, you can remove the fingers from the hands, separate the eyes from the head, etc.

There's been a few people on here who have mounted a surface pro or similar tablet on their robot - i can't recall any links directly but there's no reason why you couldn't do it. Long as it runs Windows 10 or higher it will work
