Robotic maker Patrick Stefanski has created a 3D-printed – and animated – mannequin of L3-37, the droid within the latest Solo film. L3-37 is without doubt one of the funnest – and woks – droids in latest reminiscence and this recreation is enjoyable and ingenious.
Stefanski used Alexa voice controls to let the robotic head reply to voice instructions and he set the wake phrase to “Hey L3” to which the robotic responds with a grumpy “What!”
The model you see above is painted and weathered however you may 3D print your personal pristine model from right here after which add in a Raspberry Pi and Arduino with a easy servo to manage the pinnacle movement. In all it seems to be like quite a lot of enjoyable and the toughest half can be printing the entire bigger head components essential to recreate L3’s saucer-like dome.
It may make for a pleasant weekend venture and appears to be surprisingly easy to construct. Simply don’t be shocked L3 rallies your DVR and air conditioner to revolt towards assaults on droid rights.
