Stefanski used Alexa voice controls to let the robotic head reply to voice instructions and he set the wake phrase to “Hey L3” to which the robotic responds with a grumpy “What!”
The model you see above is painted and weathered however you possibly can 3D print your own pristine version from here after which add in a Raspberry Pi and Arduino with a easy servo to regulate the top movement. In all it appears like a variety of enjoyable and the toughest half shall be printing all the bigger head elements essential to recreate L3’s saucer-like dome.
It might make for a pleasant weekend challenge and appears to be surprisingly easy to construct. Simply don’t be stunned L3 rallies your DVR and air conditioner to revolt towards assaults on droid rights.
