Antonn started off as Lilian. She had the ability to move through the family room, react using voice commands, speak, and amuse as requested. She had a camera mounted under her nose, and eyes that moved, followed via tracking etc. Her arms were originally borrowed from Jd, but were replaced with a weak copy of “Poppy’s” arms. The arms were modified to use standard servo
s instead of the strong dynamixel servo
s. Being a prototype, she has been stored away and may come back as “Antonnett” some day if, Antonn decides to retire.
Due to a Halloween project called Madame Ninndo, which was developed using an Ez Robot's EZBv4, the idea for Antonn came to be.
Lilian gave up her life for now. Modifications to the mask were made to allow jaw movement. The original easter egg eyes are replaced with doll eyes, giving a better look. (pun intended)
The scripting is a continuing process. Antonn currently can respond to about 30 plus phrases, turn on lights and appliances,(using old technology built before Alexa). He also uses Alexa to perform duties he is to lazy to do because “she is very helpful”. He will soon operate and interact with my R2D2 and Minion Stuart.
A video will come, but my video graphic skills are lousy. I will plan a time soon to have a conversation with Antonn and record it.
The computer I normally use doesn’t have Win 10 installed yet, so the new plugin
s are not able to run with him yet. I will install the upgrade soon and see how he converses with cloud power.
