The ALTAIR Robot Chronicles [Part 4] - 2017: A Robot/Ai Odyssey
When ALTAIR and Alexa met HAL9000

Building Robots should be fun too so Part 4 takes us into the World of science fiction (HAL9000) and science fact with ALTAIR EZ:1 and Alexa

I hope some of you will have seen the amazing film "2001 A Space Odyssey" where the Dawn of Man scenes involved a mysterious Monolith and we meet the legendary HAL9000 Ai - this movie was way ahead of its time, first shown in 1969 yet it still looks totally new and modern today!

Wonderful!

I'm loving your videos. Very entertaining. Its so cool to watch the two computers interact.

What timing, just last night I was loading 25 mp3 Hal9000 sound clips into my ARC so my B9 Robot can do impersonations with them. Looks like we're both at a fun stage of our builds. :P

I really like that cliff/fall detector and your thermal imagery...is that like an actual Flir camera or just a heat sensor? I am thinking about getting the Flir camera adapter for my Android cell phone to use on my robot but it is expensive At any rate,very cool what you have done,following your progress. This bot is so impressive and since I am a huge fan of the old Cylons from the 80's tv show, you may have actually started the real robot revolt that will kill us all,LoL! But I will still be a big fan of them!:D

The ALTAIR Robot Chronicles [Part 5]
Introducing a CMS (Collaborative Mobile Social) type Robot

Collaborative - where EZ:1 can use my dexterity to achieve things while working with humans and other robots

Mobile - because EZ:1 can move around freely

Social - because EZ:1 can communicate in a human like manner

A video showing the EZ:1 Robots expressive abilities using meaningful range of movements and animation playback.

Tony,
What great combinations of facial expressions tied to body movements, and his eyes are a window to his feelings.

Tony, Brilliant! This guy is packed with the future. He's really to the point now where there is nothing else to say short of amazing. It's hard to comprehend all the advanced tech you have packed into this robot. What's really amazing to me is how nicely it all works in harmony. You really dome a great job tieing it all together with you're masterful use of your self designed subsystems and coding. WOW. Of course I've learned to never expect less from you. ;)
