• The robot can be produced using any 3D printer with a build volume of at least 12 x 12 x 12cm. He conceived of InMoov as a development platform for makers and hobbyists but also for use by universities and labs. Langevin designed InMoov using the open source software, Blender, and the robot is powered by more open source software MyRobotLab.
  • Dr. Murray’s InMoov robots have cameras in their eyes as well as microphones in their bodies. Additionally, they have contact sensors that detect their distance from people and, we assume, other objects. All three robots were individually programmed so they function differently from one another and thus in their interactions with people.
  • Dr. Murray hopes to eventually deploy the robots in, for instance, hospitals and museums in Lincolnshire, where they could be useful in supplementing if not substituting for human labor.
