Building a RC robot that can walk, punch and see actions and store them as memory

parts for a rc robot that can be switched into a controlled or a talk to robot like in the movie real steel robot boxing

Hi Tyson,

Sounds like an awesome project!

Without much information about size and the constraints of your project its hard to recommend parts, but to get a gauge on what the implementation of the robot would look like I’d check out Atlas from Boston Dynamics:

The team there have spent yeaaars working on the control systems to get the robots fluid movements and human-like balance. (No easy feat by any means)
James Bruton has some great videos on robotics as well:

Narrowing down a couple of the options for control, you could use a Speech to text module such as this: Gravity: Offline Voice Recognition Sensor - I2C & UART | DFRobot SEN0539-EN | Core Electronics Australia
And for interfacing with the robot I’d check out this robot arm controlled with some potentiometers:
We caught Liam trying to turn himself into a cyborg after playing too much Cyberpunk 2077. Only a few pots, a pico and some Feetech servos and he's already claiming he can talk to the toaster.

To make the robots above you’ll need a pretty good understanding of mechatronic systems (I happen to be studying it at Uni now :smiley: )
For these robots to be smooth you’ll need to analyse how the comonents work and implement control systems, a PID controller is an example of a simple control scheme: PID controller - Wikipedia

the size might be between 4 - 6 feet in length 1.5 - 2.5 feet in Width. the time will be awhile to save up money to buy everything at once parts and material
