What do you think of my project idea?

"The open-source project where 
hackers + makers + students + DIY enthusiasts 
collaborate to design and build 
autonomous grass cutting robots."

Thanks for your feedback!

Hi everyone and thanks +Jeff Rosnick for the invite.

I wanted to share a project I have been working on and to see if anyone is interested in contributing. Salvius is an open source humanoid robot made using many recycled parts. The goal for this project is to create a humanoid platform that anyone could build on their own with a limited budget.

The project is hosted on GitHub so if your not familiar with their service then this might be a great time to learn. Git is the mos popular and widely used forms of version control to date. I think it would be great to get a few people collaborating on this project and see what happens. Check it out, suggestions welcome: https://github.com/gunthercox/salvius

Springtime arm mockup
In addition to a pair of new hands for the robot, I am also experimenting with a new design for the arm. At the moment I have created a mock-up in cardboard so that I can make changes easily. The new arm adds shoulder and wrist joints that were not previous...

A $50 3D Printed Hand Outperforms a $42,000 Myoelectric Prosthetic Device. 
Over the last several months, some of the more inspiring stories around 3D printing have had to do with the printing of prosthetic devices, particularly hands.

Wine cork for the pulleys. They have external Ø22 mm. When drilled with Ø3 sit very tight on the Ø5 mm shaft. Saves you another 10 Euro ;)

Anyone wish Asimo was open source?
I'm looking for contributors for an open source robotics project.
https://github.com/gunthercox/salvius

I would like to get a few more involved with this project even if it just means code review. If your not familiar with GitHub then this might be a good chance to get acquainted.

Please check it out and let me know your thoughts. I think this project offers a significant opportunity to teach robotics and programming.

+Jonathan Lussier Yes, i've been working on this robot for a while and for now all of the source code is freely available. I have plans to release kits eventually but for now I am looking to improve the software portion of the design and get a few additional people contributing.

Redesigned rotary movement for shoulder
I've moved the motor that rotates the robot's arm inside of the chest cavity to save space. The previous arm configuration was based off of one of my first tests for mounting the robot's arms which used a motor mounted in the arm. Mounting the motor inside ...

Introduction
I created the first open-source humanoid robot to be built in the United States. I usually post weekly updates on the most recent events involving the robot along with other technology related material.
