The NAO can become YOUR home-helper. For this we need your help. The first step is to order the NAO, build a flexible test track and construct a lift which move him up. When we have all materials together, the NAO can start. He should scan his enviroment and react to all changes. We give him a large database with forms and colors to identify objects. Special objects get scaned and updated in the database. If this work, we develop the options for children. This may take lots of time, because for the work with children we have to be very sensible. They should learn, that robots are friendly, help and play with them, but are not the toys itself.

The project

The history of this project is my family. My son saw the NAO at Youtube some time ago. He wish to get one. After i got more informations about the NAO, i see the way to get him a usefull helper for near every stage of life.

The target is easy, the NAO should teach children by playing with them, hold the appartment clean and straight, helps people, who can't walk or are to old for walking too much.

Further the NAO should be able to secure the home and call for help, such as an old people have an accident.

The NAO itself come with many features are programmable.

This are shown in this Video:

 

 

Based on this features it will be possible to tell the NAO what he should do. He can see, what happen. A function to identify objects is also integrated. By using the 4 microphones and the 2 cameras it not only stay at this features. He is able to identify guests and differ to attackers.  

 

By connecting him to the internet, he can communicate with us develeopers. The users are able to contact us directly through the NAO.  

 

At the end, let us have some fun with NAO:  

 

 

He not only can dance, but it looks well :)

 

Why fund it?

This project is only freetime work together with some friends, which are specialized in child care, software and hardware development and social equipment.

I have lots of options for teaching the NAO together this friends, but we need the hardware.

Not only the robot cost money, for integration in homes the NAO need a moveable platform to reach a woring high of 80cm to help in kitchen and on desk. 

The first prototype of this platform will be constructed fast, the optimized release will come later, when all works fine.

Further we need some money to build a flexible walking course.

The money will be used to buy all needed materials. When it's done, we can build the test track.
