Anima

Anima is a small walking robot created with Raspberry Pi, laser cut acrylic, servo motors, glass, and love. He walks with different gaits, and can currently sit and walk.  Future plans include adding PIR sensors to sense movement and possibly a normal camera with a simple neural net that detects humans.  These would allow Anima to go towards to the humans or run away if needed.  Anima will also be made of transparent glass, however this is on hold for the immediate future due to health concerns. Our current technologies like A.I., robotics, and neural nets all mirror and are based off of nature.  What we create through technology is not opposite nature, but a simplified structural form.
