Building your very own humanoid servant robot has just gotten a touch easier — that is if you have 3D printer and the know-how to follow a rather technical set of directions.
Thanks to the work of sculptor Gael Langevin the virtual blueprints for creating the robot in his InMoov project are all available online open-source.
According to io9, Langevin hadn’t previously designed robots, but over the course of a year self-taught to eventually achieve the result of a moving, voice-controlled robot.
InMoov is still a work in progress. His head, neck, arms and partial torso have been completed, but he still requires a formal base with wheels.
