RoboSavvy's Amazing New 3D Printed Humanoid Robot Utilizes Oculus Rift and a Segway for Control
I have said it once, and I'll say it again. 3D printing and robots will continue their inevitable convergence, leading to completely custom robots which can perform virtually any human-like task, and feature an appearance tailored to our individual preferences. We aren't all the way there yet, but with 3D printing, we are getting ever so close.
One company, called RoboSavvy, is probably as close as any other company out there though, with their latest creation of a 3D printed humanoid robot. This robot is unlike any other robot you have seen before, and it is built mostly of 3D printed parts.
"The hands, fingers, forearms, head, chest shell, and several internal supports as well as the custom handle on the Segway are 3D printed," Samantha Mehditash of RoboSavvy tells 3DPrint.com. "[The parts were printed on a] Makerbot Replicator 2X 3D Printer and our custom made large size 3D printer."
