Joy Robot ("Robô da Alegria") is a project focused in sharing knowledge and promoting technological innovation to assist NGOs that carry out charitable work in children's hospitals.
The project aims to design a remotely operated robot using open hardware and software technologies, to interact with children using arm movements, face expressions, voice, images, and games.
This design is a 2 inch miniature of the robot, with articulared arms. There are two designs available for download: one with closed helmet and without face (printed from a single file) and another with four parts (body, face, eyes and mouth, and helmet lid).
Conceptual design by: Guilherme Pupo
Detailed design by: Igor Albuquerque
