I’m wondering how Gareth, or anyone else, would proceed to use the below Blender file along with virtual InMoov to create simili human gestures.

The c3d addon for Blender is in the preferences to be added.

Meeting MaVo at the Eindhoven MakerFaire Netherland

We had a great time meeting more Makers with very interesting projects.

Leon and Marten were also there for fun and great time discussing over what could be done in the near future on InMoov.

As a surprise, MaVo (the person who worked the service Gesture Creator but not least) came to see us, all the way from Germany!

Bright time and good energy!

At Makercon I talked about oject recognition

Here is what they have been working on. I just received the link of the github release:


And of course MyRobotLab:

Adding InMoov sound scheme to your Audiofile directory

Thanks to Leon for creating the sound scheme that I have been using since MFParis2014.

Thanks to Sebastien of QuaiLab (France) for creating this script to let all InMoov builders benefit of the sound scheme.

Of course you can do this manually by retrieving the mp3 on my website and replacing the "starting mouth.mp3" in your Audiofile directory. But this is intended to be added as default on my full inmoov script.

Help Alessandro to get his computer back!

Dear InMoov and MyRobotLab followers,

Makezine cover!

Well guys, here we are, InMoov does the cover of Makezine. I don't know yet what is the content but it will cover a whole range about InMoov clones and i expressively mentionned to the writters of the article, links pointing to MyRobotLab.

I never have seen this clone before...

It seems to me that Make got it made for the purpose, classy!!

We should ask them to make one for you Grog!

InMoov during the Gamers Assembly 2015

MRL crashed a few minutes before entering the stage, it was a hot timing!!!

After re starting, it went perfect and just in time.

When entering the stage the robot started to wave by itself just like he knew what was going on... Actually the sound was so loud that it received the "hello" voice command and played it automatically.




InMoov with temporary wheels

hairygael's picture

I build up a simple mechanism system with three wheels for my InMoov to be able to move around before getting some legs, I felt a little left behind seing all the InMoov clones with wheels.

Believe it or not, but InMoov is driving around with a simple servo motor, Don't expect to do your jogging next to him though. :)

Betweeen the wheels you can see the screen for the Odroid U3 So InMoov can move around with voice commands or by keyboard.

Wish list for algorythm

Hi Guys,

I will be attenting a meetup in Paris with many people from all over, that are ready to work on algorithm projects.

Presenting MyRobotLab and  InMoov, is the occasion to recruit members on the project in various fields.

Igor Carron, the organizer of the meetup, proposed to launch a wish list of what could be great , necessary, futurist to progress with MyRobotLab and InMoov.

Lets not be worried about barriers, what could be achieved will be done. Just add your wish to the list:
