<p>Hi, I think this is the best robot ever made! It's so incredible, what it can do is amazing! Normally, most robots can do only one task, but your project broke this rule. Congratulations!</p>
<p>Thanks MohamedElkhatri! Wait till you see version 2 ;)</p>
<p>Pretty sure it will be amazing as well. Just a small proposition if you don't mind : why don't you give it &quot;home assistant&quot; tasks such as home control and make it familiar with its environment. Hope you a good luck!</p>
I need someone who will pick up what is dropped and ask where it goes then put it away.
<p>An interesting idea. The robot can be made a little shorter to pick things up from the floor. Speech recognition is also definitely something to explore.</p>
I plan on having my students build something similar to this using an electric wheelchair as base. This design gives me more ideas!
<p>Glad to hear! Feel free to use whatever you need and I hope you will learn something useful going over this Instructable. Let me know if you need help with anything and I will be glad to advise :) </p>
Amazing build, looks incredibly modular! Any thoughts on dressing it in a tux when you're done, to make it a robot butler? ;)
<p>Certainly. I'm thinking painting it black,, making the acrylic front plate white and giving it a bow tie :)</p>
