Recreating Rosie the Robot with a MKR ZERO

Arduino TeamAugust 3rd, 2020

While 2020 may seem like a very futuristic year, we still don’t have robotic maids like the Jetsons’ Rosie the Robot. For his latest element14 Presents project, DJ Harrigan decided to create such a bot as a sort of animatronic character, using an ESP8266 board for interface and overall control, and a MKR ZERO to play stored audio effects.

The device features a moveable head, arms and eyes, and even has a very clever single-servo gear setup to open and close its mouth.

UI is via smartphone running a Blynk app, and Rosie’s antennas can light up along with a “beep beep” sound to let you know it needs your attention!

More details can be found in Harrigan’s post here.
