First Simone Article has been published in servo Magazine!

https://www.servomagazine.com/magazine

We made the cover!

Simone an AI robot is part of the openFembot project is an opensource fembot humanoid robot. The robot's physical body is complete. The software is right behind it. ARC makes coding Simone very easy. (Thanks DJ!) Starting in March (End of February for the online version) servo Magazine is now publishing a series of articles of mine on building the robot. The first article is an introduction to the platform. The second will be on creating the rolling platform. Team Simone consists of a dedicated group of 12 roboticists from the greater Los Angeles area.

Very ambitious . Nice plan and presentation. I hope you achieve great results and share them with us. If so I can't wait to see how she turns out.

Thanks guys. She's moving along in the right direction. The second article has been published and I am working on the third. All of her servomotors have been put in place and are working. Most of her ARC code is in place. My biggest two problems now are 1. animating her so that she move more life-like and 2. her AIML/ AP (artificial personality). Though I feel that her life-like movements can surely be completed in a short while, her AP might take more than a year.

Simone Update: The third article in servo Magazine has been published. The fourth has been submitted. This will probably go into about 6 articles for the hardware and 2-4 more articles on the software.

She is 100% mechanically and electronically complete. Most of the software is complete. There is still a lot of work to be done in the chatbot. It is still rather buggy. That's what happens when your AI scope includes an artificial personality! 

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO TEST HER AI/Chatbot.*cool*

ALL TESTERS WILL BE ON THE LIST OF CONTRIBUTERS which is published in the articles! 

Also, Servo Magazine said they will PUBLISH A BOOK based on the articles after all of the articles go to print sometime mid 2022.

NEWSFLASH!!!

"Building an AI Fembot" will be made into a book later this year! 

I was told by the publishers of servo Magazine that they will be turing the article series (so far 3 articles have been published and 7 more will follow) into a book! First an article, then a series of articles, then a book. What's next? A TV show?

It looks more like Dr Evil then a Fembot. LOL.

Just kidding. Once you put on the hair she'll look great. I am looking forward to seeing her in action. Will she have hidden guns in personal locations? LOL.
