Family Butler Robot

Contest Closed
Description:
I am looking for an industrial design of a family butler robot with manufacturing specification. I would like 2 models. One with a touch screen as the face, another without - use tiger’s face and add lighting for the eyes and mouth to show when it is talking. The design of both models are to look like a cute tiger with optional clothes to dress the robot up to look like a monkey, chicken, dog, rabbit e.g. Please factor into the design how the additional clothes is going to be attached safely and securely. Additionally the robot needs to have a hook that hooks onto a stroller so it can be carried outside easily. To use injection molding.

Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design:

• Object Detection sensors
• 4 motors feedback control
• Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60°
• Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel)
• Electrical Rechargeable Battery
• Wifi & SIM Card
Environment: Robust can withstand being knocked over
Regulations: CE and CPSC certificate for children toys
Company name: Smart Robotics (to be written on the backside of the robot)

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or suggestions.

Deliverable:
• 2 designs of the robot: 1 with a screen as the face of the robot, 1 without

#19 Tiger Family Butler Robot by ProtoTech Workbench
Hello Jazzyjazz,
We are a small team of product, mechanical and hardware engineers along with a graphic designer. We have expertise in product and mechanical engineering field.
We found your idea very interesting and challenging as well. Your project requires a strong skills that incorporates product and hardware design.
Attached you'll find our concept that we hope it fits with your needs. For this project, we can provide you further consultancy. The development must take in account your forecasts over the number of item that will be manufactured per year and also the services that your manufacture provide you. Please let me know if you are the manufacturer or you should ask help from a fabric. The manufacturing methods is different form a fabric to another and some of them can't make your product unless the design is modified, so we can handle that by keeping the communication with them for you.
What's more, the robot can be dressed up using different outfits, so you can provide your clients the opportunity to improve the robot by changing the robot's outfit. We can provide you further designs over the dresses as we have a member in our team and she has a master degree in clothes design.
Here are some videos I made for you to clear up the inner component displacement and some robot's moves:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/klpbibl5imesc4d/Tiger_Family_Butler_Robot.avi?dl=0
(this is an unrendered clip, that explicate the concept)
And this video is a short one that shows the head's movement:

Hi JazzJazz,

I have one question for you. Do we need to use www.indiegogo.com/projects/buddy-your-family-s-companion-robot/x/11984391 as base design for creating the new robot for you according to your specs. It seems that most of the designs presented keep same basic design structure and just change the face design. Is that what you are looking for. Perhaps I missed something from the project brief.

Thanks Pablo

Dear Designers,

Thank you for your submissions. To allow for refined or better designs to come in, we have extended the contest for 4 more weeks. Please note the following when creating your designs:

1) There should be 2 interchangeable modules for the face. One with the screen and one shaped like a tiger's face with led light that shines when the robot speaks

2) Tiger's face module should be more 3D with curvature as oppose to flat face like the screen module

I will reach out to you separately to comment on your designs.

Warmest,

Jasmine

Hi Luka,
it is useless to talk to me like that, if my design is superior and I spend a week working on it you will not influence your word with the decision of paying your method is known! I never allowed myself to tell someone you submitted to,
People often ask me to revise my drawing and I can prove it in all the competitions we exchange by skype! you understand ? I work
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 13:32:21 +0000
If a revision for you means adding an extra feature like an extruded boss or extruded cut to a model, than I could probably submit 100 entries for every competition. Don't take it personal, this is just my opinion and it doesn't matter if it's you or anyone else, I just don't see the point of submitting 10 entries for every single competition when the models that you upload are nearly the same.

Regards

Hi Luka,
It's revisions every time I improve my drawing how it bothers you?

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 20:30:27 +0000
REDA, I don't understand why do you need to upload the same model 7 times where you only put on different renderings? That literally is CAD spamming. You can attach different renderings in a single submit.

Hi ahchap, Thanks for the question. Ideally it would be good to include the design of the electronic board however if that is not your specialty we will judge the contest 1st and foremost by the exterior design of the robot so if that is where your talent is, you still have a high chance of winning if your exterior design is superior =)

Are you expecting to design the electronic board as well?
This will include the electronic components?

Hi Ohms, thanks for the question. Just the circuit design without software. We will hire separately for the software.
Sat, 12 Sep 2015 01:54:46 +0000
For the electronics part, are you expecting a source code for the communication between all the sensors, microcontroller, motors, and touch screen? Or just a circuit design without any software?

Hotel Butler Robot
I am looking for an industrial design of a hotel butler robot with manufacturing specification. I would like an interchangeable face module - 1 with the mascot as the face, another with a screen as the face. Additionally the robot needs to have an interchangeable stand to make it taller like the Double ipad stand. http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design: Size: 56 x 35 x 35 cm Weight: 5-8kg with the majority of the weight at the bottom of the robot Exterior Components: • Rechargeable battery pad/station Interchangeable Modules: • Butler face head • Screen face head • Stand (Double Like) to extend height http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Internal Component: • 1080HD w night vision camera • 2W speaker with 22mm diaphragm • 1 microphone • 1HDMI output • 1USB output • 1SD card slot • Range finder sensors • Ground detection sensors • Object Detection sensors • 4 motors feedback control • Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60° • Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel) • Electrical Rechargeable Battery • Wifi & SIM Card Deliverable: 1) Butler Robot looking mostly like the attached mascot with an interchangeable screen module and rechargeable pad design 2) Adjustable height stand – see Double for reference 3) Video showing its movement and interchangeable module in order to show to the client 4) Manufacturing specifications

Enclosure design for a building automation product
Our company is looking for enclosure designs for a set of 3 PCB modules which can connect together to form one single product. Our chosen manufacturer uses folded plastic sheet, although design ideas do not need to be limited to this process. The main board can feature as a standalone product but in many cases will be connected with the HV and I/O submodule boards, in which case they need to form a single product. There should be a lock-in mechanism on the side panels of the main enclosure to allow connection with HV board and I/O board. The Main board will have an LED panel illuminating the company logo (which will change colours based on the product status). Each individual enclosure should be DIN rail mountable. The top and bottom inputs and outputs modules on each board should be exposed so that appropriate connections can be made without opening the box. The way the three modules assemble together into one product should be similar to this: http://sie.ag/1E7emGo Beyond the technical specifications we are looking for a fresh design to take away the feel of an industrial product and make this looks more like a consumer product. We are looking for something sleek and fresh with the look and feel of a quality product.
Open Air Photo Booth
To design an "open-air" photo booth that is modern and clean in appearance as well as minimal and compact in function. The design can either be modular or as one piece but absolutely must be light weight, very durable and very portable. In terms of appearance, think apple products such as the ipad, imac, etc. If the design is modular, there will need to be cases designed to go along with the pieces or the modules must fit in commonly available cases. In terms of materials, I am open to any and everything but again, they most be light, strong, durable, not show a lot of wear and not too expensive to work with. Wants: All designs must incorporate these necessary components: - A Ring Flash (10" diameter, 9.5" depth, weighs aprx. 5lbs) Photo attached - A DyeSub Printer (10.7" W, 6.6" H, 13.3" D, weight 24 lbs.) Photo attached - An Ipad or touchscreen monitor of similar size - A secondary monitor any size from 10"-19" - A Mac Mini (7.7" W, 1.4" H, 7.7" D, 2.7 llbs) - A second ipad For the camera element / user interface, the ring flash and one ipad/touchscreen monitor must be facing the customer and combined into one module/unit. (The actual DSLR camera mounts to the ring flash with the lens sitting in the center of the ring flash.) This unit would also house the Mac mini and possibly the secondary monitor. The mac mini should be hidden from view. The secondary monitor can be on the side or back of the camera module but in full view to the customer. The lens of the camera will need to sit at 43" from the ground (at it's lowest setting) and be able to be raised to 53" and 58" off the ground (at its highest setting.) This can be an adjustable height mechanism that allows for any height desired in between those specs or by using 2-3 different length adjustments that can be interchanged. It must be on a stable design that will not easily be tipped over. There will need to be a hidden door/access in order to power on the internal components, adjust camera settings, etc. For the printer, it can be housed in the same unit as the camera but if you decide to go this route, the entire unit must be as small and light weight as possible. Otherwise, if you go the modular route, it can be in it's own module or combined with the secondary ipad into it's own module. The printer must be at least 22" off of the ground when being used. The printer is the most delicate of all components so where ever it's placed, it absolutely must be secured and safe from being knocked over. It also must be easily accessed from the front since it has a sliding drawer that opens when the paper and ink are changed. The printer has to be physically tethered via usb cable to the mac mini, so keep that in mind. The secondary ipad's purpose is for customers to be able to use and interact with it. It will need to be at a comfortable height for the average adult user. It can be paired with the printer or if with the camera, the camera module must be 100% stable and able to take the abuse from customers using the ipad without affecting the front components. With all of these components, they need to look seamless. No hinges or screws or other hardware or cables visible. Ideally the entire set up would be primarily white with accents of red and/or aluminum. Very clean, very modern, very simple. It's imperative that the design can withstand countless drunk customers, be very stable, not get damaged or scratched (beyond repair) and all break-down/packed up to easily fit into the trunk/boot of a mid-sized car. It can pack down to one easily transportable case or 3 modules maximum. If one, it must be easy and secure to move, ideally with wheels. These components will be set up in all sorts of different locations from private residences, ballrooms, lobbies, back yards, etc. hence the reason it needs to be light weight, compact and durable as well as adjustable. I have attached a pdf showcasing several different versions of "open-air" photo booths to give you some ideas of what's being done and how much of it could be improved upon.
Design for mini-WiFi Router - Product in Big Box Retail Q1 2016
This project is for a small WiFi router plastic injection mold that needs to look like a "shield". The PCB (circuit board) is: 2.5 inches in length 1.5 inches in width .5 (half an inch) at its highest point We have included three screenshots of the current injection mold which needs to be redesign. These are JUST for reference to see what the current plastic mold looks like: current-injection-mold-1.jpg current-injection-mold-2.jpg current-injection-mold-3.jpg We have also included a screenshot of the PCB (circuit board) titled: pcb-1.jpg Please note that on that pcb-1.jpg screenshot there are two antennas or wires with green rectangles. Those will be "stuffed" into the mold and have no requirements as far as plastic pieces that need to house or hold them. We will just be pushing them into the hollow area of the mold between the PCB and plastic. What we are trying to do is change our current mold into a plastic shield. Our request is to have a plastic "shield" designed that can house the PCB. This may require the design of the shield to be thicker in height to properly hold the PCB. What we are looking for is AutoCAD design comps of what the new injection mold could look like as a shield, using the very basic dimensions we have outlined above. In regards to the design, we have attached a PDF titled: concept-shield-spec-sheet.pdf This is a VERY basic spec sheet and "concept" design of a shield that we created in house. You do not need to make the design look exactly like this. This spec sheet is just "ideas" we had for a design that would look like a shield and fit the PCB. Designers have full creative freedom to come up with some designs that fit the PCB. We have attached four screenshots of shield designs we like from a company called Vmoda: http://v-moda.com/over-ear-shields/ On that link, the designer can find MANY more ideas on shields V-moda's website all of which we like. Please note that V-moda is just an example of shield designs we like. We know they are a headphone company and have nothing to do with us other than we like their designs. The screenshots are titled: shield-ideas-1.jpg shield-ideas-2.jpg shield-ideas-3.jpg shield-ideas-4.jpg We LOVE these designs and think they could easily work with our PCB which would be underneath the shield. Designers have creative freedom when it comes to the texture on top of the shield, color and most everything else. If the designer so desires, we would even be open to adding additional "non-plastic" elements to the shield design such as "chrome inlays" or "metal edging" etc. This is not a requirement. We just want everyone to know that they can add other materials to the design if they think it will really make the product standout. We do also ask that the designer incorporates our logo into the design of the shield. Our logo is attached in both PSD and PNG format and titled: abox.png abox.psd If there are any questions, please don't hesitate write us. Thanks!
