ROBOPuppet: low-cost, 3D printed miniatures for controlling full-size robots

ROBOPuppet is a method to create inexpensive, table-top sized models of robots to provide teleoperation input to full sized robots. It involves using a 3D printer to create a minature replica of your target robot, then installing easy to use electronic components and connecting everything together using a motion planning toolkit. The total materials cost of our ROBOPuppet is less than $100, and it is extremely easy to use, having been tested with users as young as 7 years old. (Contact: Hauser)
