Create your Lady Potts with an Arduino board

Mrs. Potts with robot legs.

Surely many of you remember the beloved Mrs. Potts, that character from the story Beauty and the Beast who made a niche for herself thanks to the Disney movie of the same title.

Mrs. Potts was a kettle that sang a song for Beauty and the Beast to danceBut she was also a housekeeper who was shaped like a kettle due to the curse of the Beast's castle. Now, although not in a real way, we can get this Mrs. Potts, thanks to Free Hardware and 3D printing.

A young maker named Paul-Louis Ageneau has copied the operation of bipedal robots, robots like Zowi, for use with a kettle, a kettle that has been 3D printed. In addition, thanks to the Arduino Pro board, Ageneau has achieved that the kettle in addition to walking can emit a song, a Disney song. Thus, even if the maker does not say so, what we have is a Mrs. Potts.

A kettle that sings a song: a robot that imitates Disney's Mrs. Potts

Other method to get Our Lady Potts is to use an old Zowi robot and change the casing for a kettle, which would result in the same but without emitting music. Be that as it may, we can get this Mrs. Potts for a very affordable price. Not only because of the cost of its components but also because of the use of the Arduino board, a small and affordable model for many users.

In any case, if you are interested in recreating this project, all you have to do is go to this creator's website already this github repository containing the bot code for its operation.

The truth is that this Mrs. Potts is not the prettiest there is but It is a toy that more than one child (and not so child) will like and will entertain Do not you think?
