If you are looking for a cute DIY project or just something to keep you amused during the winter months you might be interested in a new creation called Little Robot Friends Unveiled By Aesthetec Studio.
The Little Robot Friends are a collection of cute and smart autonomous objects that have been designed to sense the amount of light in a room, they can hear with a small integrated microphone. Watch the video after the jump to see them in action.
They can also detect your touch and communicate with other Little Robot Friends using infrared light and are equipped with two RGB LED eyes and a 250mW speaker for expressing their current mood. They are powered by a 8-bit 32K microcontroller that is also used for coding behaviours and storing memories. Their creators explain a little more:
“Each Little Robot is powered by two rechargeable AAA batteries, and depending on the frequency of use should last for weeks or months on a single charge.
Aside from all the hard work put into the circuit design, we’ve also wanted to create a beautiful object – one that invited you to decorate and personalize it, but could also stand alone with no embellishments.
We love the combination of LEDs and wood – so we’ve designed a couple different bases that are CNC milled from Oak, Maple, Poplar and Baltic Birch. A good quality wood doesn’t require any stain, so we’ve decided to keep it natural.”
The Little Robot Friends project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
