Teddy Ruxpin Robot Version 1

StorySkip to comments

I added a new robot today. It is a Teddy Ruxpin, if you remember him? He was a talking toy from the 1980's that used a tape player. His mouth and eyes were animated with a single motor. It wasn't a very intellegent toy...

So that's where the EZ-B came to play :) .. So I emptied the guts and replaced the internals with servos and the eZ-B. I used the EZ-Builder software to control it. I wrote a bunch of scripts that animate the robot.

See the whole build here: www.ez-robot.com/Robots/Teddy-Ruxpin-Robot-V1

We did make a teddy bear walk by wrapping the fur around a [sku:31] like Jeremie had said. There's a video of it somewhere, titled Hexapod and bear dancing? Something like that... I'm on my phone so it's hard to search for it at the moment :)

Here's a photo of the bear. It's sitting beside me in my lab at home.

Yeah, nomad that's the video.

I did say teddy ruxpin would get the upgrade - you're right. I didn't do it because he's in the EZ-Robot Museum now. All the robots i built a long time ago are in the museum for visitors to see in the ez-robot facility :)
