Jason sent me a picture of a robot arm he's building, with the ultimate aim of creating a life-size InMoov humanoid robot. In a later message, Jason asked if I would be building an InMoov of my own. I replied that this might be a possibility at some time in the future, but that I would have to finish some of my current project first.
I also pointed him at the classic Animusic Pipe Dreams video and mentioned that one of the guys in the office, my chum Ivan, and I are planning on building a cut-down -- say 6 x 6 foot -- table-top version of this little beauty.
Now, many peoples' knee-jerk reactions are that the Animusic version is just an animation, and that it would be impossible to create a real-world equivalent, so I also pointed Jason at this video of Atom-powered Intel Industrial Controllers replicating the Pipe Dream experience.
Good Grief. I've never hear of a Laser Harp before. Of course, once you see one, several thoughts spring into your mind: "That's a clever idea,""It's an obvious thing to do when you come to think about it,""Ooh, Shiny," and "I want one!" What about you -- could you be tempted to build one of these little rascals?
