Hier ein Roboter, der Fotos von sich selbst macht und dabei lächelt. Normalerweise creepen Roboter, die lächeln oder versuchen, wie Menschen zu agieren, the shit out of me (merken: Endlich mal den „Warum ich gerne Denglisch schreibe“-Artikel schreiben). Aber dieser lächelnde Camera-Bot ist herrlich albern und würde wunderbar in einen Warner Cartoon mit Bugs Bunny passen. Das Robot-Äquivalent von Daffy Duck, oder so. Smile!

As written earlier here in my blog, I am trying to make a robot that will take snapshots of itself.

I have made some laser guiding system (I think), and some cool docking so it can hook up a trailer with a camera on.

However, I figured that if the robot is taking pictures of itself, it should be able to smile to the camera :)

What is on the tiny shot is just how I think I managed to get a smile from a robot, interestingly to me, it appears that most animatronics either strive to look like a robot, look like something mean, or look human / natural. I wonder why noone (aparently) thought of ways to make them things just.. smile :D

Smile, Mr Robot :)
