ObotClosure (Prototype)

October 4, 2017


Oboture is a play of robotic toy and a guest sensor. The intent of oboture is to act as a guest greeter at the entrance of a store or house in disguise as a robot/radio. The arduino and the sensor that runs the program is kept in the enclosure (oboture). The mechanics of the oboture is quite simple. As a guest walk past oboture, the sensor would read a presence and a robotic sound will emit from the speaker. The guest could also interact with oboture by pressing the button and the antenna would rotate. 


The Process


I was inspired by the wood robot and wanted to create something that has similar characteristic to it. I took a toy and dismantled the toy to extract certain parts and use it. 

 There were a few parts that I took from the toy, the antenna and the buttons. 

 I first measured my arduino and drew on the wood that i intend to use. 

 After cutting the box to size, I made a hole using the drill press to house my arduino. 


 Using the same method as above, I created a hole for the IR sensor. 

 To house my antenna and the button, I drilled a hole to fit both of the elements.
