Discussion of Overall Components Involved In Construction of Advanced Humanoid Robot

In this video, I discuss that I will be using Dev C++ as my IDE for coding in C++. I plan to use a laptop minus keyboard and screen as my robotic brain. (edit: as of 2020, I found out we can just buy a mini ITX form factor motherboard and use a regular gaming pc processor, ram, HD, etc onto this mini motherboard which can easily fit in the chest of the robot) The laptop will be mounted in the chest of the robot. The laptop will run the windows 7 operating system and I will be able to code using the familiar apis and libraries I have already been programming with for years. I describe how the laptop will get software updates via wifi. My laptop will connect to a series of arduino microcontrollers via USB and these will then interface with all sensors and with all servo motor control pcbs which will all be custom pcbs. The Arduinos will be like little workers carrying out the overarching commands of the main brains pcb in the robot's chest which does all the heavy lifting in logic, motion planning, AI, etc. The Arduinos will just carry out simple commands they are given frequently and report back with updates from sensor inputs that they pull in frequently and report their findings to the main brains pc which will factor in these findings into its high level planning systems. The robot will need probably 200+ servo motors. The servo motors will work as muscle fiber pullers (just like fishing reels) which will actuate the joints. For joints requiring more force than a single servo motor can generate, multiple motors will be required to tie into that joint via multiple muscle fibers. The muscle fibers will just be nylon upholstery thread or strong 100lb test woven fishing line sliding inside wiring hoses and connecting to the bones of the robot. The laptop will plan and calculate complex motions in its 3d mathematical model of the environment and will create animations for its limbs and then use inverse kinematics to calculate the motions frame by frame needed by each of the motors. The laptop will connect to the arduinos via usb. Each arduino will support a handful of motors, so I will need tons of them littered throughout the robot to support the many motors I will be using. The body will be encased in silicone and latex to simulate human skin, softness, and muscle aesthetically. The robot will also wear human clothing (my clothes in fact). The robot motors and electronics will be cooled via a artificial lung that will pump air to the various cavities within the robot that generate the most heat and a ventilation system leading to the nostrils and nose will vent out the hot air. The robot will appear to be breathing. In fact in winter, its breath will come out looking like smoke just like a humans! The robot will have video camera eyes (I bought ELP USB camera 1080p 2 megapixel, wide angle, low light x2 for $98.42) and microphones in his ears to take voice commands. It will have speakers in its mouth to enable it to talk. It will lip sync when talking in a realistic manner.
