Wevolver shared this great interview with
Gael Langevin, Inventor Behind the Open Source Lifesize 3D Printed InMoov Robot. Via 3Ders.org.
Since October 2012, Gael Langevin has been building the InMoov robot step-by-step. Starting with an Arduino-controlled hand and forearm, the robot slowly came to life. The InMoov robot’s “skin,” joints, gears and many other pieces have been 3D printed.
Since 2012 people all over the globe have been printing and building the Inmoov robot. Right now parts of the InMoov are even being “hacked”to use as prosthetics. Truly amazing.
Wevolver invited Gael to come to the 2014 Arduino Day in Amsterdam to show and tell about his InMoov robot, since we are huge fans!
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
