#maketheworld – Gael Langevin of InMoov – #3DThursday #3DPrinting

InMoovMakerFaireRome

One of the key projects that has been an influence over the open prosthetics projects is InMoov. Right now, all over the world, 3D printing hackers and robotics enthusiasts are printing their own Open Source sub-$1k, life-size humanoid robot from the inMoov project created by Gael Langevin (known on Thingiverse as hairygael).

This as become a fairly popular, if challenging, printing project – and there are many new contributions from the community, including Joel Hackett’s python scripts to make InMoov talk. Check out the InMoov blog for updates and to see the additions others are making to these fascinating robots.

Recently, Langevin has started to consult and participate in open prosthetics projects, closing the circle given the significance of InMoov as a point of inspiration for many of the desktop 3D printed prosthetics efforts out there in the world.

InMoov

From the InMoov blog:

Here is “InMoov”, the first life size humanoid robot you can 3D print and animate. You have a 3D printer, some building skills, This project is for you!!

Working as a sculptor modelmaker for Factices Ateliers, in the real physical world, this is my contribution to the OpenSource 3D world.

This is all designed with Blender.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit — and today we will be sharing about Make The World: Prosthetics, a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of printed prosthetics to people in need, hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Key partners on the program include Robohand, MakerBot, The Open Hand Project, Anthromod, Prosthetics for Prosperity, e­NABLE, The Lucky Fin Project and Hands for Africa.

Adafruit’s Makers, Hackers, Artists and Engineers Community under the subsection “Make the World” is hosting this month long effort. Community members will post up with what they can help with, suggest people in need, and post pictures of their accomplishments/builds. In addition Makers will be able to find support for the creation of Robohands in the e­NABLE Community on Google+.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
