Project Aiko

Hi,

i'm not sure if this was posted before, but imho this is too good to go unnoticed:

Make sure to watch the "Video 2". For a single person this is really a big achievement and definitely a step in the right direction :lol:

If the video doesn't play for you it can also be downloaded directly at http://www.projectaiko.com/video/aiko2.wmv (29MB)

Wow! That is really amazing. I'm hoping that the math and text pattern recognition wasn't preprogrammed. This is an incredible advancement! Thanks for following this up. I hadn't seen the latest clip. I really wish that her name wasn't Aiko, though! I'm related to two by that name :P

Hi

Project Aiko is real.
What you give her she can read on the fly, same goes to solving math.
Any word she can't read, she will spell it out.
You can see her public appearance at the International Center and Ontario Science Center in Nov 2007.


My guess for Aiko to walk will cost about another $9000.
I have to use Seiko Motor which cost about $600 each.
Hopefully, I will find a sponsor soon, so that I can continue
my research and make her walks.

In case you are wondering, Aiko has senors in her whole body,
and both her arms. I am saving money so that I can put the sensors
in her face too.


Since, I have spent so much time taking pictures, I might as well post it up. :D

If you have anymore questions please do not hesitate to ask me.

Yes she may not be as fancy and tricked out as the EVER 2, or any of those projects. But she is really pretty and her design is great!

If this is just one man's work, then you are to be congratulated for accomplishing even this much!

Mr. Trung, you do incredible work at Project Aiko! Truly beautiful. The artificial intelligence is the best I have seen. The fact that she can learn, recognize and problem solve, far surpasses the Actroid. Not to mention that she is more self-contained. For one man to have done this deserves much admiration and respect. It is apparent that you have put a lot of time in developing her. Obviously I hope that you are successful in making her walk and continuing to improve her capabilities! I'm sure all of us here hope so. Thank you for sharing your work with us. I wish you much success :D

P.S.
My relatives Aiko and Ayko should feel honored :lol:

Here is Aiko's new prototype Hand.

I have tested the new hand at Star Bucks picking up the coffee.
I didn't get the change to video it, but I will video the next time I am there.


Pro:
1) 5 movable fingers
2) Compact size. Same as human's hand
3) Will have complete sensors for feedback
4) Low Power consumption 5V
5) Can be use for Aiko.
6) 15 movable joints
7) Material Cost $1800

Can be use for Aiko or for human. Life-like mechanical limb that has the ability to feel physical sensation.
(Control by human muscle) special senors and controller will attach to the human's muscle. Another words, controlling the hand with our muscles.

Human Brain >> Nerve Impulse >> Muscle >> Aiko's Hand

This technology can be beneficial for people born with or who have undergone amputations.

Since, I can't find any volunteer, I guess I will it on myself. :shock:

Good luck with that, I'd love to try the hand if I could do so without needing one of my own amputated first. So if that is possible...?
I'm just a 'girl' who wants to become a fembot whats wrong with that?
