It has been almost three years! Here's my entry: I was unable to obtain the necessary funding to get LivingCreatures going back in 2004. I have spent the last 3 years in aerospace, but will be returning to my roots.

I'm putting out an open call to any talented individuals that are in the proper financial and educational state to try a robotics start-up company. Please email me @ if you're interested.

So, the humanoid has finally been delivered to the USC Interaction Lab. Final pictures can be found here.

2 new pictures of the humanoid I am developing are available here. All joints are functional with analog feeback scaled to match pulse width command positions. It can smile and frown too :-)

The head for our humanoid has come back from rapid prototyping and we have sanded and primered the main shell. No word yet on the final color, but it is interesting to look at none the less. I just like how close rapid prototyping is able to get to the actual 3d CAD model, really remarkable stuff!
Here is the link

We have made further developments on the USC humanoid project. The head design has been finished by our artist and I am now working out the internals so that it can be sent off for rapid prototyping. It should be finished in less than 2 weeks and will take about a week to get back. The hands are also designed and ready to send with the head. You can check it out at the bottome of the page on the link below:
USC Humanoid Robot
By the way, we haven't named him and I never anticipated a problem with this, but suggestions would be great since we have been unable to decide on one yet!

I have provided a page on my website that gives an overview of the USC humanoid robot that I am working on. Please stop by and check it out here.
More pictures will be posted soon.

The preliminary website for our company has now been posted here.
We have shirts etc. with our logo on it available here.

Here are a couple of pictures of the humanoid I am working on. Yes, for those that have been asking for them, I finally got around to it :-)
Picture 1
Picture 2

Okay, that is better :-)

Hmmm, start making robots professionally and get bumped down to Journeyer? :-)
