Building a robot is difficult. It is not something easy despite the video tutorials we have on the Internet. The difficulty can increase considerably when we are talking about building an android robot. Something more difficult if we want it to imitate the functionality of a human person.
There are many guides and tutorials that will help us create this, but it is best to opt for a solid project that creates an android and incidentally, not only does it help us to have this robot but also teach us to create any kind of android robot.
The robot ASPIR complies with all the previous requirements although we have to say that it will not be economical.. ASPIR is a project that creates an android robot with a plate Arduino MEGA, an LCD screen, and 33+ servo motors that will help the pieces to move, as well as the robot.
ASPIR has a guide on Instructables, a complete guide that we can purchase or consult at any time and that will help us build this fully functional android robot. But as we have said before, this project is quite expensive. ASPIR has a cost of more than 2.500 euros, a very high cost if we take into account that the product will not be as functional as The bicentennial man.
The size of the ASPIR robot is also not very large, the resulting robot is four feet tall, that is, just over 1,20 m. Tall. So ASPIR may be a bit disappointing for many users. However, the educational element is still present and that makes the project is an alternative for those who want to learn.
In any case, if ASPIR is too expensive for you, we always have the option to build robotic arms or robots like Zowi; projects that will teach us to build various parts of the human anatomy without spending more than 2.500 euros.
