Remarkable! Videos like this get me absolutely ecstatic. Seriously, well done. When people skit with their ezrobots, it shows the human/machine connection... and our dreams of having robot friends!

I'm with frank, well done!

Thanks for introducing your bot. Very impressive. I am inspired by your cable routing and redesigns.

Glad you're an EZRobot guy. This community is really growing.

Ya, really nice work. I like the conduits you've made for the wiring - nice and clean. Hope to see more of your work here. What part of Canada are you from? Not too many of us Canucks here.

I don't want to water down your thread with my pics so head over to mine to see my dude playing guitar. I was just playing around with pics but your vid is inspiring me to play a real song. I have some work to do so no vid yet. How hard can 'Smoke on the water' be?

Great work, the conduits you've made for the wiring are very impressive and makes the wiring look so neat and tidy! ( not like my rats nest ) on my InMoov.

Great video too.

@Holy 1, and Mrs @Holy1

SUPER JOB ! T-ONE is quite the talker. I enjoy seeing robots having conversations with humans. I am also very impressed with the musical ability of T-ONE. I see a new TV show in the works called ROBOTS GOT TALENT, and T-ONE on it. LOL

BTW, Two thumbs up, LOL (cool idea)

Amazing looking robot and a very cool video! Your wife seems so excited about your project!
#12  
Wow, looks like all your hard work is paying off. I love your style and craftsmanship. What fun and I love the way your partner (wife or GF) participates and obviously enjoys the robot. You're a fortunate man.

I have a quick question and please don't take this as critical. Just wondering; Is it possible to get his mouth to open farther when he talks? Is the slight movement inherent to the design and physics? Perhaps it looks odd if the mouth opens up more? It just seems it needs a touch more movement to look more human.No biggy, just something that caught my eye among the pile of truly enjoyable action and interaction. :)
Canada
#13  
@ Dave, thanks. My wife is great and keeps me on coarse if I stray to a different project. Super supportive. The jaw opens much wider but there is quite a bit of servo noise so have kept the movement to a minimum. Working a new method to work the jaw.

@Sebediah. Thanks for your kind comment. My wife Rocks!

@ Andy - Thank you. I think T-One may have stage fright. LOL

@Phg - Thanks. More videos to come for sure!

@Cem, @ Bhouston, @ Perry, Thanks for noticing the wiring. I spent a fair bit of time on it. I did the conduit trick before on my printers and cnc so figured it would look good here too. It's really easy to model up.
@Bhouston, I am in Ontario. About 2 hours north of Toronto in the middle of nowhere.

@Nink - Thank you!

@nomad , Thanks you sir. 2 thumbs are the way to go.

@ DJ - Always nice to get a compliment from the OVERLORD! :)

@Faengelm , Thanks you. I've enjoyed watching your progress on the dancing robot.

Supercool! I really like the opening scene, where he is hidden at first and then reveals himself out of nowhere...first the arms, and then the body leaning to the side, showing his face! Good dramatic opening!

And great build of course!:D

Hi @Holy, Would you be ok sharing some statistics with us. approx Total Build Time, approx Total Cost you spent etc. I am moving very slow with mine (two steps forward 1 step back) and just wanted to get an idea of what I am up for in terms of Time / Money
Canada
#23  
Thanks everyone. T-one is a lot of fun. I do struggle with the scripting and the autopositioning not completing its' move.

@Nink, I'll look up the costs in the next day or so. I'm sort of nervous to see how much I spent in total.
Time wise, I started in April and put in time when I could during the summer , maybe 5 hours a week not including printer time. When it is a labour of love one doesn't seem to count the hours.
I spent a lot of time on wiring, hiding the ezbs and designing the new hands.
Canada
#24  
@Nink, Ok, tallied up the cost so far including all the ezrobot stuff, other electronics including 4 scrapped mega sized digital hitech servos ( they are not good) , 10 rolls of filament and all the nuts and bolts and miscellaneous stuff.

$2128 CAD including all shipping and taxes.

My wife says I shouldn't tell anyone, LOL . :D

Thank you @Holy That gives me a really good guide (especially because I am in Canada :-) Your build is very clean so appreciate you giving me the break down. Looks like labour is your biggest expense and your attention to detail shows. Thanks for sharing.

@Nink, Sure no problem. Let me know if you need anything else. I'm here!
#27  
@holy1, I see you’ve add something between the back pistons on the stomach. I’m wondering what you did there.
Canada
#28  
@Bob, It's a tilt re-stricter. I put it on when not using the tilt forward function so it stays in one place. I use an elastic to hold it in place.

Here is the file and stl.

Tiltrestrictorv1.stl

The .step file won't upload.
#29  
Thanks, I’ll have a look at that. Does your stomach move quite easily or does it need a push move it? I have to give mine a good push to move it when the power is off.
Canada
#30  
No, it needs a push to move but if the arms are straight out holding something and the base servos are released it will drift forward. The tilt restrictor will prevent that but will still allow leaning backward a few degrees.

What are your speech settings? I think you can speed it up quite a bit and sync the mouth better.
Do you mind sharing?
Canada
#38  
@perry, I am using the emphasis on strong and the Rate on slow. I have tried many variations but we like the rate set to slow . The sync is a bit of sore spot with me. I have adjusted the settings many times and when i get it near perfect, it changes the next time I load up ARC and the sync is way off.

To be clear, I mean the settings in the talk servo window are saving fine but the sync is off after a reload of the project. For now I have given up on this but plan to revisit.

Here is a new 180 ° Wrist for T-One the Inmoov robot. It can turn a full 180 ° without the fingers moving from their position. The fingers and palm shown in the videos are NinjaFlex.






#45  
Your hand and new wrist looks great! Can you give us some details on how you built it. Any plans to share the STL files?

#46  
@Holy1
I would be also interested on how you managed to do the 180 deg movement of the wrist, without affecting the fingers.
I have never been happy with the wrist movement on my InMoov.

@Bhouston and @Cem ,

Sorry for the tardy reply. We picked up an Oculus a couple of weeks ago and
I love it. good time waster. Have been ripping the heads off robots in Robo Recall instead of spending time with T-One! :D

Here is the link to the thingiverse page I just created.

#48  
Thanks Tony, Great design! With the flexible fingers, do you have 1 or 2 lines going to each finger? I have a modified hand on my InMoov that has flexible finger joints and all of the finger servos in the hand. I have one line to each finger and can get the full 180 degree rotation in the wrist. The original hand will do the 180 degrees as well but not while gripping an object really hard.
Canada
#49  
Thanks Bob. I have one line for each finger. I'd like to see your hand with the finger servos in the hand.
Canada
#51  
Cool Bob, Hadn't seen those. Are you still using the hand?
#54  
I like it. I am currently redesigning my head as well. I have moved the servo for the jaw forward and changed the neck twist servo. I want to move the eye mechanism so it doesn't mount to the back side of the face but to the support structure instead. Reason being when I take my head apart the camera cable and servo wires make it very hard to remove.
I am also using an ultra fast mouth servo, the type I usually use on my remote control helicopters.

Canada
#55  
@Perry. Those are good ideas. I hadn't thought of attaching the eye mechanism but I am now! It makes a lot of sense and you could also easily interchange different faces (if you were so inclined). Also use flexible material for the face if you wanted to get into emotional expressions.
#56  
@Holy1, Nice modification. A lot of peoples InMoov jaws make noise. Mine doesn't, I'm using a cheap HS-311 servo (it's been in there since day one) and all of the jaw joints are lubricated white lithium grease. What was making all the noise on yours? The servo or the joints? My joints were making a lot of noise until I greased everything.
Canada
#57  
@bhouston, Thanks. It was all servo noise. I tried a few different ez-robot hdd servos and used the most quiet one but it has to turn so fast on some of words. The jaw itself moves easily and is well lubed. Even the worm gear would drop through the hole easily so no binding there.

Anyway I'm really happy with how really quiet it is now.

@3dguy,

I miss seeing your content on here! Your inMoov videos and pictures were so unique and funny. I loved that you were pushing the envelope in giving your inMoov, T-one, a personality and character. It's very unique. I really appreciated the creativity and effort.

I can only speak for myself but I'm sure there are both regular community members and those who don't comment much who would love to see your contributions back up! 

Community members, I hope you can back me up on this!:D

OOoooee i hate this,not bin able to help.3dguy i hope you find a way out.
#85  
Yeah, it is a shame. I really enjoyed the video's as well as the build overall. It was one of the few inmoov's that are not a cookie cutter copy and I considered it state of the art for inmoov. 
Not sure why you took it down and thus the reason I asked.

Personally I had a similar incident with my robopup thread. Formatting was screwed up, I tried to fix it unsuccessfully, then the thread was deleted at my request. I no longer post builds here because since the switchover from the EZRobot website this new format is just terrible. Sorry guys, but it is. From the social network comment section style to the jarring colors. The big picture tiles as opposed to the great functional layout it used to have. There is not even an opportunity to post a comment with information for the board. It has to be a build or a question. 

I love the EZR software/hardware/community. Having said that I am now a lurker as the new format has chased me away from posting my builds. I just cant control the content on those threads and do not wish to battle against that.
