What Would Your Robot Do?

Do you have a robot idea that will change the world? Synthiam is committed to making the future a robot-friendly place.

Since the dawn of man, we have applied science to achieve the automaton, the mechanical man, or the robot. As technology advances, we continue to dream of a future with machines making the world a better place. When we reflect on how far we’ve come, it’s easy to see how great tomorrow will be.

Hi All,Long time reader, first time poster. I think it'd be really cool if there were robots that could act individually on their own (say for house chores), but could combine together to perform additional tasks (like outdoor chores).

I want a robot that will pour a glass of wine for my wife, and thereby prove how useful it is...and I’ve promised her I can do it :)
idea
my first robot , a 3d printed Inmoov modified, is simply to entertain and inform my local world how far this tech has gone to this point in time to the average person available on the web.I hope to advance to something spectactacular on my next venture ..my special thanks to Gael and DJ for this crash course into the future.thanks again,Eddy

I want to build a robot that is capable of taking care of animals while their owners are away. Initially, this would involve filling water dishes and food bowls. Eventually, this robot could take the animals outside for walks. It would also send updates to the owner if it noticed that the animal is ill.
idea
Develop a robotic assistant for personal care. a core system with modular attachments for assisted living like meal prep, clean up and other hygiene and housekeeping chores. Core system could have attachment for trash day. Deliver full and return empty. I have an RC version of this based on a hacked "Shoprider' WHEEL CHAIR. Video available. Have been working on navigation and autonomous operations for 3 years. looking at your controller and...

I am in the process of developing a robot called Nina, which will act as a affordable and adaptable form of assistive technology for people with social, perception, or cognitive developmental disabilities such as Autism and similar disorders.I had come up with this idea over a decade ago when I was in high school, as I am an individual who has grown up with autism (Asperger Syndrome specifically), but have since learned that this robotic therapy...

I want to make an artificial intelligence robot that plays music with the sound recognition system
idea
A quadruped mixed with a quadcopter robot used for search and rescue. That is fire/water proof. So it can walk or fly over obstacles.
idea
Robot cars having wheels with jonshon motors and it will run on water... And its body will be in a "I" shape
idea
I always get inspiration from nature and I admire bio-inspired robots. I am designing a scorpion inspired robot. I am not a coding specialist hence I have to rely on internet sources. I learned about "SIX" from your website which gave me a boost to my confidence. although SIX has a circular body, I hope I can use similar code to make 6 legged of scorpion walk.
idea
I’d like my drone to be my hiking buddy! To be able to follow me around (face and back of my head) and to respond to voice commands like point to North, take a picture, go scout or take a selfie!
idea
I would like to use the jd robot to work on a project studying how robotic design effect the person response to people. It would be used to study the reaction of people of all ages with 3 different programmed settings of interactive ability with the person. hopefully the project will show that human and animal shaped robots have different abilities that enable them to be used in different settings. I would also like to use it to teach/show others...
idea
I would like to have a robot that will recognize inappropriate language and remind the users by beeping. It can also be taught to catch grammatical errors. I would like to have him in my home to make sure the kids are disciplined and understand the value of appropriate language usage.
idea
I’m hoping to do a collaboration on a robotic horse.Fully rideable, this would be sold to cosplayers and even eclectic individuals that want an eye catching way to get to the corner market.I know this can be done with existing tech, but I need an expert to help me take this to the next level.Thanks!
idea
I want to build scale models of top tanks along with my son. To have a wide range of top features and functionalities including not just driving motions but weapons that can be fired etc. using some great power trains available nowadays in the RC car industry along with 3D printing for body parts etc. I think this will be a great way for my son to not only to learn about robotics but electronics, software and programming, 3D drawing, electrical...

A cooking robot so my great mom doesn't have to work so hard, and so I can have my favorite meals every day:)
idea
I am building a Mars rover project and am incorporating cybersecurity for a school project. I will be using a 6 wheel Bogie Mars Rover base with EZ-Robot controller with camera on a Pan/tilt for the rest of the electronics. I will also be adding a drone (multirotor) to this project as Phase two that communicates with the rover and HQ (my laptop). I plan to take pictures and video of this in action up in Sedona, AZ where with the red rocks and...
idea
There is robot wars. My robot will be a combat robot but walk on its legs and use its hands to fight.
idea
i would like to see a robot that is like jd and has a similar design but i would want it to have AI as in the robot can walk and talk on his own.
idea
A robot that can be similar to humans and help people in need elders etc in their homes and not only.
idea
I would like to see the humanoid robot programmed with the ability to recognize multiple faces. I would set it up at the entrance to the classroom. Then the robot would greet each student by name as he or she comes into the Robotics classroom. This would be a fun way to introduce to the students the vast array of careers in security programming and by extension the introduction of robotics in security applications.
idea
Useing SLAM robot get a massage from voice recogunition , serch the requested item ( blue ball or ..... ) and bring it to the owner.
idea
Will use EZ-B as a basis to animate two life-size 3D printed R2 Droids with moving panels and arms, audio and computer vision recognition.
idea
I want to use the robot as a cat companion. I'm hoping to teach it to recognize the cat and do various activities so we all have family fun. Once that works, I will create interesting "outfits" to keep the fun going.
idea
Here are my ideas so far:- use an (old) smartphone to use it as an face for the robot. I already built something with php and ez script, to change animated gif's on the display.- the option to use an microphone attached to the EZ-B.- the possibility to save a program on the EZ-B (or an controller attached), so you don't need a pc to execute a program.- an dockingstation, to charge JD's batteries. Something like an chair.Best regards!

Hello, I would like to build a collection of waste sorting robots, for example one which can recognize and collect diapers, newspapers, cans, bottles or even orange peels.
idea
A JD home automation system. Using JD to take voice commands to act as a personal assistant i.e. Siri, Alexa, or Google.This system can have add-ons that control lights, curtains, and can automatically feed the dog with a servo system.JD can even dance for you have conversations to entertain kids/elderly.
