Creative Corner
« on: January 01, 2011, 06:22:19 PM »

Hi guys,

I'm trying to develop some new, unique, distinguishable behaviours for Pleo.

So far I am thinking of an Pleo as playing ghost application and am pretty happy with that thought.
The second application i want to develop is set as well. There is one left and I want to through that into
the round to see what ideas you guys have.

So please think of anything you want to have, ( it  its too complex will be desided later ) every idea counts.
Maybe there will be a nice third application everyones happy and is realisable in time.

So consider this as a thread for all the Pleo programmers to be some creative ideas and for all the Pleo owners
a place to but down the wishes on a list, hoping that they get realised some day ;).

For detail: I'm talking about behaviours/applications, so not just skits ;), more like the ones released by InnvLabs ( Xmas, Halloween, LovePleo etc.)

greetings Manny

Could Pleo search for, track and follow a ball (like Aibo)- any games of 'football' so far have been coincidence! :P

Is that the kind of thing you want? :-\

Hi,

well tracking or even playing football may be to complex to be handeled by the cameras capabilities though...

but when i was reading your posts, i tought of  may a little game: touch pleos head, make him see a colour ( what ever one ) and then
he confirms that he has seen that and walks of to search something that has the same colour.
Once he found it, he signals that with some audio or so ... and then you can touch his head again to start on a differend colour...

wow, that sounds like a great idea! ;D my only concern is, due to pleos restrictions on movement, (i.e no real left and right turning) it would be more like trial and error as to whether pleo finds the colour, unless there is some way you could change pleos movement patterns? ^-^

Ploo is a cute name.
The owner needs to fix him.
Ploo is second hand.

Cool, huh?

That does sound good fun!  :D

I'm just coming up with stuff as you've asked - how about Pleo picks something up (like a plastic cup - easy and not flat to the ground) and moves it, or you could combine the two games and use coloured cups?

well what restrictions?

You can write your own skits which make him turn in 90 then then you could make him go straight again ... and so on :)

Though as you said, its random movement patterns, so its quite luck ... there is also the possibility of hard-coding some algorithms what make him search some more intelligently but im not sure if thats then to complex ^^. I'll just give it a try and see how far I get.

@ Crewella, i just had a look at Pleos moth ... its only able to bite on flat areas. The problem ist the actual picking up caus when i lowers his neck then the surface has to be flat but on an angle as well ... making him knee down could make that a bit easier but was well hast to be testet ^^ :)

Maybe im going to switch me Remote application to move those 3 motors (mout, shoulder, knee) and see how it goes if I steer him.

Manny

Edit: lol have chosen the wrong range and now i can controle pleos eye movements XD

This all sounds very exciting.  I can't wait to see just what you end up with.    ;D  If you need someone to test your end result on a rb and film it for you I'm your girl! ;D
