While I’m still waiting for Culture Japan’s fully robotic SmartDoll, why don’t I start making my own version?
I used a DolfieDream as my base. From their website, you can buy different figure models, wigs, eyes, eyelashes, etc. to fully personalize the look.
The head comes with a plain face. I bought their make-up kit which contains tools and acrylic colors to paint the face. They also have different eye options: cartoon-like ones and more realistic ones. You can use hot glue to fix them in their heads. But if you’d like to change them, you can use their eye putty, which makes temporary but strong hold of the eyes.
Some people think dolls are creepy. But if you make one that somewhat looks like you, maybe not too bad?
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
