Mimbo, A Friendly Robot

Mimbo is a friendly robot who mimics your emotions. I made Mimbo in December 2011.

He has a cardboard body and an iPhone for a face. He uses face tracking through your computer's webcam to track your facial features and expressions and then does his best to mimic them. Everything is done through the OSC protocol with Processing and TouchOSC.

I documented how I made him on Instructables and Thingiverse.

He also got picked up by a few blogs like Engadget, Mashable, Gizmocrazed, and Techmash and inspired a few others to make their own...
