Sound advice on the top cans to buy
You don’t so much buy the InMoov as buy the means to make it. It’s a fully human-sized robot whose component parts can be made in a 3D printer – you download the plans, print the parts and assemble them accordingly, although you will need to add wiring and Arduino to get it all working, so it’s not really aimed at the total amateur.
It’s estimated that you’re going to have to spend around £600 on materials, and that doesn’t include the 3D printer itself.
Still, it’s a pretty small price to pay for a lifesized cyborg companion, able to be controlled via voice commands and gesture controls. InMoov is less a product and more a collaborative, work-in-progress science and engineering project; it’s still in development and likely to get even better as more people join the community surrounding it.
