Man Builds Robot That Looks Like Scarlett Johansson Because He Can
If you're going to build yourself a robot bride then you might as well build one that looks like your favorite movie star Scarlett Johansson instead of, say, one that looks like your dead mother.
And isn't it every young geek's dream to build their own beautiful movie star bot so they don't have to binge watch shows on Netflix alone?
Of course, most sad little fellows don't have fifty thousand dollars laying around, nor do they have the drive to create a robot from scratch despite their lack of mechanical skills.
But amateur bot builder Ricky Ma had the cash and the driving desire to create his very own "famous Hollywood actress", so he learned along the way:
When I started building it, I realised 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. When you look at everything together, it was really difficult.
As a robot she's fine, but as an actress she's a bit robotic...
