People in the comments are gonna be like Simone, you look really tired. I’m not tired I’m just not wearing any makeup Because I’ve got more important things to do, like build a contraption that feeds paper to a robot arm so it can help me write 2000 holiday cards. I was gonna say it’ll be good. I don’t know if it’s gonna be good, but it’s gonna be something. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live with an industrial robot arm in your house? Starting to sound like a really bad dating app “Have you ever consider marrying her robot arm?” I’ve not considered marrying a robot arm but I have thought a lot about what it would be like to have an industrial robot arm in my house because KUKA has decided to lend me one Yeah, I think it’s a really good decision They’re delivering their LBR iiwa to me tomorrow, and the holidays are coming up and I want to send holiday cards to all of my patreon supporters, but there’s almost 2,000 of you, so Why not use the robot arm I’m getting tomorrow to help me right 2000 Holiday cards? I got these paper rolls, and I’m working on making a contraption that just slowly rolls it and then I’m thinking that the robot arm will just hold a pen and they’ll like scribble on the Paper as it goes past and you know what I realized? This is the first time I’ve tried to build a robotics project that actually works It’s it’s weird, but this is like what people usually use robots for who knows maybe it turns out I’m also the queen of well-functioning robots. I don’t think we have to worry about that I might’ve… Harvested parts off of the soup robot. It always feels like grave robbing. “Oh, sorry I’m just gonna have to take this one motor!” So I’m thinking this is like the platform that it’ll write on and there’s a servo motor here that pulls the paper through and a controller there You can adjust the speed with I don’t know if this is actually gonna work I picture it working pristinely in my head ♪”Queen of robots that work really well”♪ Refined robots. I’m the queen of refined robots Are you fucking kidding me… ~Nooo~ Incoming Educational moment I use a lot of servo motors in my projects and they’re really good because you can tell them what position to go to One thing that’s not great about server motors Is that they can’t turn all the way around unless they’re continuous and that means you lose the position control But you basically get like a fairly cheap DC motor. For this project I need one that can spin around continuously and I was convinced that the one I used in a super robot was continuous …but it turns out that it’s not I do have continuous motor is on the chopping machine. Okay. We’re gonna grave rob the chopping machine as well. Oh my god It’s so weird for you to see this end of the room. It’s all in the same room, my workshop is like 10 steps away from my bed This is my robot travel bag, this is also the coffin of pretty much every previous thing I’ve built. I think it should work now Oj! S – i – m – o – n – e w – i – s – h – e – s y – o – u – a – h – a – p – p – y h – o – l – i – d – a – y ! “Simone Wishes you a happy holiday!” anyone can see that. It’ll be really long holiday cards for people oh wow But that’s a problem for “tomorrow Simone” because “tonight Simone” needs to clean this mess up Okay, good night. Bye. I’ll see you tomorrow. Bye I’m getting my new pet today! It really feels like I’m getting a cat “kinematic kitty”, but a lot more expensive because this forearm is like $100,000 and I still can’t believe that they’re letting me borrow one. It’s out here in the garden It’s such a weird thing. I’ve interacted with this robot arm a little bit at the KUKA office They like had me over there and train me on how to use it and it really feels like this Mythical creature almost. It moves like a Griffin UhrggImgonnatakeabreakandsitdowforasecond Does it look really penile? Cameraman: “Clearly you’re exited to have it “Clearly i’m exited to have-” Oh Scott! I might be one of the first people in the world who lives with, at least with this type of robot arm in their house I don’t know what type of pioneer that is but I’ll take it! Also for all of you who are very worried about my well-being for now This is what’s called a “collaborative robot arm” So it has force/torque sensors in all of its axes so …like it won’t crush humans I was hoping that it was gonna be able to do some sort of like writing on these cards I have quickly abandoned that idea. It’s gonna squibble. Is that a word?
squibble? scribble? This is just gonna be one very long signature If my patreon supporters would wanna fame the signature, they’d all have to get together. All 2,000 of them and tape it all together. “Squibble?” “Squid?” “-Kible?” Sksssk – “Skiggle?” What was it? cameraman: “You just say it at the same time, “Scribble” and “Squiggle” Sschhs- “Scriggle” It’ll just be like baby drawings, then you have to be like “Wow! Thank you!” I think we’re ready to start this! Let’s plug the servo motor feeder in oj “Happy Holidays! Here’s a line” This person who gets this one right here is getting a very special piece Its almost like I don’t have to be here it tells the story – its a very long story it goes from “long and straight” to “no let’s improvise a little bit” D: It’s almost doing like a “Polka grisar” It is it’s like these sticks that look like a “J” – and you eat them No? I’m getting no response from the Americans in this room Multiple Cameramen: “Candy Cane?” A CANDY CANE!! YES, it’s drawing candy canes! So actually every Friday and a couple of weeks forward I’m gonna do a live stream using this robot arm to automate different tasks We’re gonna have different guests on and it will be fun Friday at 11:00 a.m. PST Come and hang out and also let us know what you want to see us automate in the comments! We’re thinking like… I don’t know… I need ideas give me your best ideas! I think that was at least another… …100 holiday cards Okay Bye, and happy holidays! and extra happy holidays to all my patreon supporters. Come enjoying the shitty robot nation if you’re feeling inclined… Just look! This is the type of value proposition we have
