Check out my presentation from the Next Berlin conference.

Robots will eventually co-exist with and help humans in daily life. To get there safely, we will first deploy them in entertainment and education business. 3D printing their parts brings that vision closer by lowering the cost of manufacturing.

Hi Limor -
I watched your demo yesterday - very interesting.

I couldn't work out exactly how the robot was made to dance.
Is this done by vectored motion (ie pre-programmed moves)
or by autonomous response to the music?

I'm not so sure about the notion that 3D printing
can bring you closer to an Asimo in terms of price because
I think you are looking at 2 very different concepts and the
wrong content. An interesting sales pitch though...

But you are right that 3D printing can be used to produce
cogs and casings although I'd argue that plenty of low
cost commercial products are available if you look hard enough.

Interestingly you mentioned robots in the home. What I find
particularly dissapointing is the fact that current off the shelf
technology could now be used to perform a whole variety
of home functions - particularly - as you mentioned yourself -
for the dissabled and yet no one seems to do it.

You highlighted the safety aspect of such projects and are completely
correct in your judgement there - however that is a matter for design
and task selection. I can think of several projects that could assist
the dissabled that would not need to suffer that as an issue using
(as I say) off the shelf technology.

Perhaps less emphasis on bi-pedal motion and more on task resolution could easilly put robots in many homes today.

Anyway - thanks for uploading the talk - it's very interesting to hear
from people who are "doing it"
I even enabled flash on a system just to watch you... now thats an novelty :-)
