Name: Data

This is a full-scale replica of Data from Star-Trek that I have built to entertain the clients of ReStoring Data, a Canadian data recovery company located in Vancouver, BC.

As passionate about robotics as I am, I thought it would be entertaining to have a full replica of Data in my data recovery company.

Data has two SM-S8166M servos for the head and other two for each arm and is running on the old EZB board. The arms are currently purposely disabled to limit movement as this guy can hit you if you just say Hi 5 :P

Right now Data can follow faces and movements, tell random jokes, respond to specific commands, is greeting clients.

I’m still working on his personality and some dance moves...

I was planning to install him servos for the elbows but after I got a punched from his unpredicted Hi5 I decided to put it on hold until the software is more stable.

We have just posted DATA on our Facebook page


:D

My robot does High 5 also, but he is unlikely to hurt anyone.
I would like to see your robots arms move.
I will be working on my android in a few months and will be needing good motors.
Data might need I R sensors so he wont move his arms if anyone is too close.
Plus they would help him know where people are located so he can turn to face them.
