ROBI, Robot from Deagostini Japan.

Image

Started making this Robot kit from weekly subscription magazine company, Deagostini Japan. 
Am currently up to vol 9 of 70 odd.
His head servo is working, so at this stage it can move left and right. The half body in this picture

Imageis just a stand to allow for testing of the servo. 

The completed robot has voice recognition and can walk, dance and do other activities without need for a controller or programming. Just ask him to dance and he will.
Here is a youtube video of the finished product.

The first kit also came with a “mini figure” which is about 5cm tall.

To give an idea of the size of his head, here is a picture of me holding it in my hand.

I’ll see if I can post updates on the progress of building him. It may be a while before anything really substantial is ready to show. It appears the next month or more of magazines will be mainly arm or leg parts.

He looks a little like Astro boy.
