JD is a fully fantastic functional humanoid robot built with EZ-Bits. His body shape is designed to resemble a human. A humanoid design is functional for many purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion, or for other purposes. This humanoid boasts 16 degrees of freedom with his 16 Heavy Duty Servos.
JD has a torso, a head, two arms, and two legs. The head of this robot contains a camera for vision tracking modes, including color, motion, glyphs, QR codes and faces. Each eye has 9 RGB LED's, which can be programmed for a variety of expressions. The included EZ-Builder Software makes it easy to create animations to customize movements.
The EZ-Robot JD Humanoid robot kit is a fully functional humanoid robot built with EZ-Bits. This humanoid has 16 degrees of freedom with metal gear heavy duty servo motors. The head of this robot contains a camera for vision tracking modes, including color, motion, glyphs, QR codes and faces. The eyes of this robot have 18 LEDs (9 per eye). Each LED can be configured up to 1 million color combinations. JD includes apps for walking, dancing, and playing the piano. EZ-Builder Software includes an animation GAIT feature called Auto Positioner. This allows you to create movement animations for your robot to walk, dance or give high fives. The animations can be triggered by other input controls, such as Speech Recognition, Vision Tracking, Joysticks, Wii Controllers, and more. Program movements, vision object tracking and interactions with included software. The robot will respond to voice commands and is controlled from your mobile device.

If hardware is the heart of your EZ-Robot, then software is the soul. Introducing EZ-Builder Robot Control Software. Your robot is controlled by the World's most powerful and scalable robot control software. EZ-Builder takes a productive and unique approach to programming your robot, EZ-Builder uses graphical controls which represent features and functions. Simply add new controls to your robot and enable behaviors such as Camera Tracking, Speech Recognition, Wii Controller, Joystick, GPS, Accelerometer, HTTP Server, GAIT Positioning, and more. JD includes apps that allows him to walk, right away. The EZ-Builder Software includes an amazing GAIT feature called Auto Positioner. This allows you to create frames and actions to animate the servo positions. The actions can be linked to any other control, such as Speech Recognition, Vision Tracking, Joysticks, Wii Controllers, and more.
Control your robot from an Android or iOS device, phone or tablet. EZ-Builder Mobile is the world's most versatile and powerful Mobile Robot Application that fits in your pocket. The mobile version of EZ-Builder loads any project that has been created with EZ-Builder for Windows and has been saved to the EZ-Cloud.
JD's compact grippers are useful for picking up and holding objects. Powered by strong metal geared servos, these grippers also include a tension mechanism to save servo life.
This robot can walk with the default included software. Use the included software to modify the default movement animations.
The eyes of this robot have 18 LEDs (9 per eye). Each LED can be configured up to 1 million color combinations. The head contains a camera which can track colors, faces, motion, glyphs and more. The compact grippers are powered by strong metal geared servo motors. JD includes apps that allows him to walk, right away. Includes digital heavy duty 15 kg/cm servo motors. The metal gear and ball bearing internals will withstand a high load. The EZ-B v4 is the brain and has two PCB’s sandwiched together in a compact 2x2 inch package. For advanced users, the EZ-B may be removed from its casing and mounted directly in a custom robot. Manufactured by EZ-Robot/Canada. EZ-Robot was founded in 2011 by Roboticist DJ Sures.
Note: When you order JD, it's drop shipped from Shenzen, China. That indicates the JD humanoid kit is manufactured in China and not in Canada.
