Design for Deutsches Museum exhibition robot finalized by LEGO

February 18, 2015

Thanks to LEGO, professional Rene Hoffmeister and his team from 1000 Steine finished the final robot design. Due to our new hardware design using Arduino microcontrollers and the MotoMama motor shield we just needed more space and a little redesign was necessary.

Our plan is to integrate all electronics within the next two weeks into the LEGO robot and make a new test in the “Deutsches Museum München”.

As soon as possible we want to start a blog series which will published on the INTEL Blog too. There we want to describe how to realize such an project and how everything works in detail.

We would like to thank LEGO for sponsoring the design for the robot. Additionally we want to thank INTEL for sponsoring the whole hardware costs of this project. Please see the final design of the LEGO robot in the following pictures.

Today we continued our work for the Intel Realsense challenge. Here is a screenshot of our game “Parrots On Target” which is completely gesture controlled. Everything (software, a.s.o.) was developed and made on our own. We are not quite sure what those flying “things” really are. Any ideas?

ParrotsOn OOP Munich

January 29, 2015

Yesterday, we held our talk about gesture control and the next wave of 3D cameras at the OOP in Munich. Since we had a time slot of about 90 minutes, we could show a lot more demos and showcases than we normally did. So we presented a live demo with a volunteer steering the AR.Drone using the LeapMotion controller. The all-new Intel RealSense visualizer was also demonstrated for the first time, and we controlled a hardware synthesizer using 3D cameras. It was a lot of fun, and in the end, the organizers told us that – according to the surveys – our talk was awesome.

German Museum exhibition – First pictures of the robot

Have a look at the first version of the robot prototype for our German Museum exhibition project. This Lego model was created by the professional Lego builder René Hoffmeister and his colleagues from 1000 Steine. This is not the final version, but it is an exciting draft for what is to come within the next few weeks.

Today, we held our talk about gesture control and the next wave of 3D cameras today at the Intel RealSense hackathon in London. We were also helping the participants when they had technical questions. We had lots of fun and got inspired with new ideas.
