Written in cooperation with Inria, France
European Research Council (ERC) grantee Dr Pierre-Yves Oudeyer, is today presenting the first complete open-source 3D printed humanoid robot, called “Poppy” (@poppy_project). Poppy is a robot that anybody can build– its body is 3D printed and its behaviour programmed by the user. However, it is not just a tool for scientists and computer “geeks”– the team of developers aims to use the robot as part of vocational training in schools, giving students the opportunity to experiment and program 3D printed robots with various characteristics.
