Jo Robosapien Project



I started working on this Robosapien project with making a new head from a 3d kids space projector. Fabricated face shield form tinted plastic and added leds. Another feature added is adjustable r/c shocks to compensate for the weight of the head(which is very light)..I will use the EZB v3 that i have and the wireless color camera installed in his head. Installed hd servo for head rotation. Hope you like it. User-inserted image

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Stay at the forefront of robot programming innovation with ARC Pro, ensuring your robot is always equipped with the latest advancements.


the robot looks cool,but why would you change the springs ? its possible he will not walk properly now. the robot needs to be able to swing left to right to be able lift his feet up and move forwart.


Shock springs installed to compensate for extra head weight. It still moves correctly..I am able to adjust the amount of movement..


does the lower body part still fit ?


the robot looks very cool.


@rb550f , You sure do make some cool bots. I love his eyes. They kinda burn into your soul.

That's a great idea using adjustable shocks. I could have used an ingenious thought like that a times. I've got to remember this. Do you have a video of him walking and the shocks working you could show us?


Thanks for the response. I have added a pan/tilt servo assembly and works great..Also added a backpack cover for the EZB v3. I have two serious problems..1 is power .Cant find space for added battery power. 2 his walking is poor even without the mods. I think he looks great and scripted some more of the robosapien and ezb servo commands .I am thinking about making a lower drive base like the new lost in space robot (wheels or maybe threads. This would give me plenty of room for added battery power and other options. Just started no video yet.. stress


Looks supercool! Good luck on the progress... :)


rb550f, I enjoy seeing your many EZ Robot builds. The head is a great addition to the Robosapien. Steve S


I really appreciate the positive feedback....I also 5 more robot projects to post that should be very interesting for our robot community. You know just to keep up robot building enthusiasm. Here is a snick peek User-inserted image


@rb550f are you able to use the current ARC application to control your RoboSapien? I thought I remember in an old thread that newer versions past a certain point flaked out in controlling a RoboSapien properly. I was just wondering if you were using an older version and what which version date it was?

All of your robot are freaking awesome and inspirational! On BMAX I see an OmniBot 2000 base and body, another torso from an OmniBot 2000, arms from an Emiglio robot. What is the head from, I can't place it?


I am using current ARC. The head on BMAX is from a RadioShack Robie Sr that I modified. Don't know why image is rotated on post.
