Cyber fox from Brian Anderson
New York Comic Con (in abbreviated form NYCC) – a pop culture festival (an anime, video games, a manga) on East coast. Designers from many countries there gather.
Brian Anderson on NYCC exposed the Vulpes Exploration Rover Alpha 1 model which represents 3D a cybernetic fox into whom touch sensors are integrated. The audience at an exhibition could see all possibilities of creation of the designer. Brian exposed on sale of 10 such models which were redeemed in 2 days.
V.e.r.a.1, the mobile boat 1st in the world on self-government, was created by the PolyopticsLABs company. The boat quickly adapts for new environment. Specialists of the company applied DNA of a fox which were connected to OS and robotics details. As a result there was a surprising robot fox. V.e.r.a.1 is capable to react to irritants intellectually.
V.e.r.a.1 for the present cannot call the functional independent robot. Work on the project still proceeds. The figure of a fox is made of pitch, she gets the idea about 30 parts. On the case of model the radar is established. Eyes of a fox being shone. Also the boat has an inclusion and switching off button and the demountable panel on the head which allows to get access to mechanics. The boat is equipped with the replaceable accumulator. V.e.r.a.1 boat manually is painted.
Many details for a fox were made on 3D the Form 1 printer. It prints a stereolithographic method that allows to receive objects high characteristics.
Brian, as well as many other designers, estimated pluses 3D the press in comparison with ordinary production. The boat was created only by means of digital technologies. Brian Anderson says that his designs are issued in circulation from 40 units that allows to use 3д the press as technology of creation them.
Brian gives preference of the SLA technology before FDM. Nevertheless and this technology has subquality work. When using SLA you have about 20 % of an incorrectness at design restoration. 3D the printer asks service by specialists. Quality of the press can affect and feature of assembly of a platform.
How there is a process of production of model of a boat? The written details pass polishing and test for determination of durability.
By means of a special tape manufacturers cover eyes of a fox, the model is grounded by gray color. Reddish imitation of a rust is added. Paint is fixed by a varnish, all layers dry. From above put a layer of a white first coat.
After that masters remove special tools layers of a white shade, simulating effect of a rust.
For masking on the following step put orange colors, the model is varnished.
On the following step electronic components are installed and check of the correct work of V.e.r.a.1 is carried out. That it was possible to check mechanisms in the head of the fox, one party of the head made demountable. On a kernel of memory it is possible to establish additional ON.
Further pigments of paint rub to add at image red and brown colors.
On a final step of a coloring picturesque splashes are put, the model undersigns manually. The designer made the whole collection of robots which differ a coloring.
The wishing can receive the robot fox by the preorder (well to 20 units) for 135 dollars. It is necessary to wait about 120 days.
