Robot Building Strategy

I plan to first build the left arm, implementing the motors and their attachments to thread that will run through rubber sleeves and connect to the bones in strategic locations matching the places that muscles attach to the bones. The servos pulling the threads will serve as the "muscle system" doing the same pulling that muscles do. I demonstrate this functionality here. Upon finishing the left arm and hand, I will be making the spine and rib cage within which I will mount the main computer, batteries, artificial lungs cooling system, and additional servomotors. I will need somewhere around 300 servomotors and 30 LiPo batteries for this robot and so the torso will need to be CRAMMED with stuff. The cooling system will be critical to prevent overheating since all of these hot electronics will be stuffed inside a silicone skin suit trapping in all the heat being generated. From there I will make the pelvis, leg bones, and head. Then last I will make the right arm. Throughout the build I will be trying to place servomotors as efficiently as I can, however, I fully expect to move them all many times as I try to figure out more efficient ways to cram them in - I will need SOOO many servo motors that cramming them in will be hard. During each addition of several servo motors, I will be rigging them and testing them and begin coding them for testing purposes to do basic movements. As the project moves forward, I will also be creating a flexible mesh exoskeleton that will form the shape of muscles and encase the entire robot. It will be a protective and shape defining outer structural framework upon which I will lay down the silicone skin. The silicone skin will be painted and created with careful attention to detail so that it looks like real human skin. I will even insert real hair into the skin. The masterful simulation of human skin can be seen in the movie special effects industry and I will be pulling upon their techniques for my robot so that my robot will look real. The face will be given 20-30+ mini motors to control its facial expressions so that it can talk with moving lips and a full range of simulated emotion. I will create an additional backpack full of extra LiPo batteries that the robot can strap onto his back for any extended operating periods. This way he can function for long periods of time without running out of batteries. He will have webcam eyes and strain gauges (pressure sensors) that will enable him to use computer vision to "see" as well as "feel" the world around him. He will have accelerometers and gyrometers for balance and walking capabilities. During the robot build and especially upon completion of the robot will come a huge effort put into coding his advance artificial intelligence and capabilities. The coding of his AI will take up the lions share of the project, most likely involving 20+ years of development to give him all of the capabilities I have envisioned such as cooking, cleaning, walking, talking, dancing, mowing the lawn, painting, etc.
