About Me

Hello, I'm Larry, the crazy innovatin', inventin', jack-of-all trades nerd who decided to make some epic robots! My plan is to make the LarryBot by early 2020s and code all of its advanced capabilities over the course of the 2020s and early 2030s. Following that, I hope to make the AnnaBot. The LarryBot will look just like me and the AnnaBot will look just like my girlfriend/future wife Anna. These two bots will be our household assistants and be capable of doing all sorts of household chores. During the course of this project, I plan to be very open about all of the things I learn and reveal the process of creating these bots on my Youtube channel and a wide assortment of social media sites as well as this site. Somewhere along the way I would like to code a very advanced drone and cnc machine as well.

The Humanoid Bot Design

So I decided to toss traditional manufacturing concepts used in robotics out the window and create my robot in a way that closely follows the design and structure of the human body instead. I am using a close replica of human bones for the armature/structure of the robot and using spandex fabric to form artificial ligaments. For the cooling system, I'm going to use artificial lunges. For the musculature, I will be using nylon upholstery thread attached on one end to servomotors and on the other end to the joint that servomotor is actuating. This technique I thought of after observing the way that bike hand brakes are designed. The robot will use an onboard pc running Windows 7 and will be programmed with C++. It will connect to a series of Arduinos via USB and those Arduinos will be connected to servomotor controller boards and those boards will be connected to servos. I anticipate having over 200 servomotors. It will also have about 100 force sensors which will measure muscle tension in order to detect collision, effort being expended, balance, load weight, etc. I plan to have webcams mounted in the eyes, which will be hollow, and the webcams will be hidden inside them. I plan to have microphones to allow the robot to take audio commands and hear people talk so that it can hold realistic conversations. It will have advanced artificial intelligence, gps, cloud access, sonar, speakers in the mouth to enable it to talk, realistic facial expressions, realistic silicone skin, and real hair. In order to give the robot an accurate profile that matches the human body, it will have a flexible mesh exoskeleton grid structure that I will form on my own body and remove from my body and build the robot within this exoskeleton. The exoskeleton will deform like muscles during movements of the body and the silicone skin will be formed over the top of this exoskeleton.
