Why edencybernetics.life?

I want to increase human potential, individuality, and harmony through the medium of cybernetics

So..what is edencybernetics.life?

Basically, I build robots that kinda suck in an attempt to evolve a robot that is actually good! Eventually I want robots that can garden for people, which is why eden is in the name.

Humanoid Skeleton with Pneumatic Muscles (Spring 2015)

BB8 (Fall 2015 - Spring 2016)

I wanted to build a BB8 for the first new Starwars Launch. The build was behind schedule, over budget, and the head kept falling of. It was very educational and fun though!

AI Daemon (Summer/Fall 2016)

Eventually, the AI personality became divorced from the BB8 robot itself and the project took on a life of its own and I had launched a kickstarter for the project.

A Follow Me Camera Bot (Spring 2017)

I developed a very simple robot with a single axis of rotation that can make a laptop with a webcam follow a person when they move out of frame (left or right)

I put that project blueprints and code up on my website and sold a few copies!

The Dragon Robot (Summer 2017)

This was an experiment to see how far I could take my design skills.

I added a smart phone to the face and used it to get the robot to talk and control the Bluetooth motor drivers in the neck.

The spider bot (Summer 2017)

I began work on a spider robot, but it was too complex and became a dead end.

The IndieGoGo Launch. (Summer 2017)

On July 14, 2017 I had my first significant entrepreneurial success. I built motor mount that can move around the popular Structure Sensor on a 2d axis.

The launch netted me $228 in revenue, $96 of which is in donations for open sourcing the project.

2 people bought the product.

The structure sensor costs > $300. This means that I could only market the device to people who already owned the structure sensor.

The TY Beanie Baby Robot. (Summer 2017)
