This project started early August 2022, follow us on Instagram and Twitter for daily updates.
NEW: Join us on Discord for help and discussion!
Up to now, humanoid robots were either toys that were extremely limited in their functionalities or complex, expensive robots suited only for research at university.
- can walk nearly as fast as a human toddler
- can use the arms to lift at least a toy
- works immediately after building it (walking, grabbing animations provided)
- can be controlled via a remote control (PS2, 8Bitdo)
- can be operated by a variety of single board computers and controllers (Raspberry Pi Zero / Pico, Arduino, ESP-32, etc)
- is easy to print and to assemble (currently 20h to print, 2h to assemble)
- easy to write software for (python and micropython)
- costs for a minimal system should be low (to use in schools)
- modular so that enthusiasts can change the design of a subsystem
- design should be adaptable to different servos
- is easy to charge / batteries easy to change
- Build Kayra (what to buy, where to get the files, how to print)
- Software for Kayra (setting up, moving servos, adding poses and animations)
- Modify Kayra's design (what to download, intro into freeCAD software)
- Contribute to the project (intro into github, pull requests, etc)
- Research on robots (what other's have build, pros & cons)
- Digest the design evolution on Kayra's parts
