Art & Technology
Welcome to the future!
The “Mark 1 Robot” project is essentially an art and technology based project with a simple premise - to allow the evolution of consumer robotics through hands-on experimentation. I want to provide an opportunity for “makers” to create, share and advance their robotic experiences and creative designs, to further the robotics movement.
Through the “Mark 1 Robot” project, hobbyists can join together and share their ideas, download plans, learn robot making and experience advanced mechanics on a user-friendly platform.
Additionally, I may help others progress their skills to the point of being able to market/sell their creative designs online. I want the growth of sharing to hopefully result in the growth of commerce in robots.
Of course, as an “art” based project I welcome artists and designers from all fields! Art and design are very important and is the key point to combine with new technology - otherwise, “robots” will only be a mesh of wires and circuit boards.
In the future, I hope all involved will keep modifying and upgrading the base design together. The “Mark 1 Robot” should benefit from this community development cycle by finding real world applications and resulting in more advanced progress into the future.
"Launching in October 2017"
This project will be launched on Indiegogo for crowd funding in October!
Please send email to me if you have any opinions!
Let’s make this a collaborative platform :-)
Your donation can help Mark 1 Research & Development to keep running. We believe that Mark 1 will have application and assist human in coming future. After donated, Your Name also will be printed on the Donation pages of our Instruction Manual Book. The instruction Manual Book is expected to publish on December 2017.
Mark 1 Robot 3D digital file download. Based on the simple structure, you can be easier to assemble and make your own robot at home!
Including Mark 1 Robot Instruction manual & 3D printing parts. We also offer some special and good quality products in the market and recommend to our makers & users.
Members can share or recreate their Mark 1 mechanic, face, mask, etc. and upload your robot creation for sale.
Nearly a billion dollars in VC (Venture Capital) money flowed into robotics startups in 2015. The number of financial exits shot up to 15. By all accounts, a big year. And yet, if you want to buy a human-like robot, you’d find it costs upwards of $150,000 US dollars. Not cheap. And never mind extra expenses like servicing, parts, and transportation.
This inspired him to put all his data systematically and write a handbook for education to teach people step by step along with his experience sharing. An online platform will also be created for people to download updated 3D printable files and A.I. programming as technology updates with times.
Ricky believes robotics should be accessible to people of all ages, nationalities and development.
The Handbook will also reveal the knowledge and tools necessary to build their very own human-like robot. As part of the Robotics Handbook, the advanced 3D files and AI programming resources behind the "Mark 1" will be made available online for community members. New adaptations and improvements will be posted, helping to centralize development, distribute upgrades, and keep community robots running their best.
Why not build one yourself?
It may sound impossible. In fact, it’s not even all that hard. Ricky proved that when he unveiled his home-built "Mark 1" Robot.
Now you can too experience the incredible technology inside the "Mark 1" in your own home or hacker space. Join the team and crowdfund the Robotics Handbook. Contribute to the first-ever guide to how to build your very own robot!
It would be an absolutely fantastic book for those love arts, sculpting and casting, to machinery mechanics, wiring, and AI programming.
You will get to know all the secrets Ricky Ma Tsz Hang (Creator) built his robot “Mark 1” and also obtain the treasurable comprehensive 3D mechanic-parts data to build your own human-like robotic through the handbook.
