What that comes into animation, often remains in the animated form until someone brave and genius enough attempts to make it real. Shown here is one such successful robot made by Oscar Liang who attempts to make one of the most humble robots we have ever seen in animation: Wall-E. In technical terms, it is an Arduino controlled Bluetooth robot with sounds and object recognition capabilities.
Since, it is a robot of the future (as per the movie), it is ought to be quite sensitive and sensible enough to work on its own and not take much of human orders. Oscar gets this awesome Artificial Intelligence feature in the robot and also makes it quite simple to understand with a hidden inspiration to make it too. This robot is manually controlled but nonetheless is as interesting as the one in the movie and its construction is as tough as making a robot from the Transformers.
In his post about making the robot come real, Oscar gives eerie detail from the hardware chassis to software coding applied in the robot construction.
For instance, the motor installation has been quite well explained through high quality images and text. Moreover, there are videos detailing with the developmental part of the robot. The active learner dimension has been achieved in this post as he has constantly strived to make the bot better and has not stuck on a pre-set ideology of how to design it.
