Scarlett Johansson Lookalike Robot, Mark 1, Created With 3-D Printing
A Hong Kong man has created a robot version in his home of actress Scarlett Johansson.
HOMEMADE ROBOT CREATED TO LOOK LIKE SCARLETT JOHNSON
The creator Ricky Ma, a 42-year-old designer, spent countless hours and over $50,000 to create his own humanoid woman robot.
Ma has not confirmed that he modeled the robot on Johansson, but it’s safe to say there are remarkable similarities to actress’s facial features.
The robot, called “Mark 1,” can move its limbs, alter its facial expressions, and even reply when spoken to by Ma through a microphone.
“Mark,” is also able to respond to compliments. When Ma tells it how beautiful it looks, it replies with a flattered “thank you” and gives a smile and a wink.
Speaking about Mark 1’s development, Ma said: “When I started building it, I realized it would involve dynamics, electromechanics, and programming. I have never studied programming, how was I supposed to code?”
“Additionally, I needed to build 3D models for all the parts inside the robot. Also, I had to make sure the robot’s external skin and its internal parts could fit together.”
The robot is also made using mostly 3D printing with 70% of the body created by the printing machine.
