This guy built a pretty great robot and plans to sell it for around UK 200 (which would be around $300 US I am estimating). This robot can do some chores, chat with you, learn your interests, tell jokes, and even access the internet to learn more! I like it for the AI but it's not a bad bot either. I hope he can manufacture this! He should contact WowWee! LOL!

Here's the full article:

If anything, WowWee will end up working for him... :-)

Hi Everyone

Thanks for inviting me to this forum!

I have been developing robots for over 30 years. My first programmable robot was Herbie that was completed in 1979. You can see Herbie in the CyberneticZoo timeline for important robots of the last century.

I am currently forming a new company to design and build advanced Personal Robots. AIMEC:3 is a high tech toy while AIMEC:4 is a more advanced Personal Robot that has face and object recognition.

@Toymaker,

Welcome and I think everyone here is really hoping you succeed in bringing AIMEC to market.

I already brought this robot to the forum! You always take me things! I don't want to play anymore! Laughing

I'm kidding of course. Let me go on record as stating that I, too, would love to have a robot like this. It makes all of the robots I own look like... well, toys!

@Toymaker, Welcome to RoboCommunity!!!

I had been watching your bot for some time now and I love it. As most of our members agree that we would love to see more detailed work in how the bot looks inside and would like to see more video if you would share it with us..

Hi All

Again, thanks for the welcome! I had visited this forum before but thought it was just for WowWee robot discussion!

To answer some of the questions:

There is a nice piece that the Russian NTV network did that was seen by 100million viewers in Russia and the former Soviet Union, in this piece you can see a glimpse of the new AIMEC:4 head in eye-tracking mode:

On Youtube there are a couple of video's that show the comical side of the AIMEC:3 Robot.

The AIMEC:3 speech recognition engine is SAPI5.2 the robot currently understands over a thousand commands and phrases.

The AIMEC:4 speech recognition engine is Dragon DNS10, this is much more advanced and uses dictation mode (as well as grammar mode) where I can ask it to search for anything (no grammar limitations).

The robots can have any name you wish. I call AIMEC:3 "computer" as I am a Star Trek fan and that's how they address speech activated computers in the show.
