We had the pleasure to interview Jason Snow, a very active member of the community and designer of his Otto design called “OTTO Arms”:

Q) Why you like your Otto version ?

Jason : OTTO Arms make Otto look more humanoid

Q) Did you use a kit of your build your own?

Jason : Designed and programmed myself

Q) What was the most difficult part to assemble?

Jason : The most difficult part is getting everything to fit in such a small space

Q) what will be the feature you would like to include in your robot

Jason : The feature that would be great to add would be a voice

Q) What is your favorite robot? Do you own/built any other robot at home?

Jason : I have built several robots, the best one is ROBOCHICKEN which myself and two work colleagues built to compete in 4 series of the popular UK TV series Robotwars.


Thanks Jason!
