It was time to take another pass on the hair cutting robot. The new robot is bigger, better, way more reliable and travel friendly. I tried to cut MatPats hair (live) then my brothers hair and then my own. For some reason I'm compelled to improve the pattern carving functionality even though I have zero desire to actually use it....
One final thing - if you know of any actual problems that could use a better solution please leave a comment. One of my goals is to make a portion of my projects attempts at solving legitimately useful problems and I would love to have a good list of them. Thanks!

      Try a pencil hand that writes your homework if you tell it where to copy it from and the robot also writes everything in your handwriting after analyzing it

      Your videos are awesome! Idea: Mirroring programming While the saw is attached to the arm, have a zero point. Have a professional carver carve something while the arm records the movements. Once they are done, save the the program. Now, every time you place the log and robot arm at zero, you can just run that program... would be awesome! Mass produce famous carvers works at a fraction of the price.

      Problem idea: I hate that you have to put wires behind and through the walls and have a hustle with mortar, paint and other stuff before you even get to the wiring just to put a new socket or whatever... I had an idea of making like a paint with which you paint the circuits like they do on the circuit boards, but on the walls. so, I want to put a new socket, I paint two stripes from one point to the point where my socket will be, I affix the socket that has two small contacts with a screw and cover the conduit with some wide isolation tape that hopefully works well with the style of the room... I tried with copper, got it from CuSO4 and vitamin C, but I couldn't figure out which adhesive to use... I mean, I'm not an engineer, just had time and a strong desire not to go through all the trouble of affixing a new socket... in the end I made a compromise with a long cable... but if someone who actually knows how make stuff can work this out, I'd use that product for sure...


      How about using a custom made trimmer with really small width

    What? Lost code? You can make private (or public) source code repos on or, push there as often as you'd like, and never lose your code since the last push. I'm sure you know that though.

    Instead of three discrete switches, how about a ring attached to three or four switches or rather, some sort of feedback system (spring loaded linear encoders?). That way, when the ring contacts the skull, if not all three or four encoders register the same amount of deflection, then the robot adjusts. If they do all register the same amount of deflection, then the system knows that the theoretical surface described by the ring is tangent to the curve of the skull. Also, the ring should glide a little less painfully over a persons' cranial features.

    Most hair tend to be wavy or curly. you need two parts for your machine, one is working like a comb to straight up your hair, and the other part to cut the straightened hair.

    It would be awesome if you can develop some type of smart calculator, one that can understand a problem by speech or photo. I feel as though you could help a lot of people with this. There are websites that try like Wolfram but it is not consistent enough or smart enough in my opinion.

    heer's a stupid idea.... instead of using vacuum to hold up the hair and cut, why not use the Van de Graff generator ball and hold it like a crystal ball, let your hair stand up, and cut it? just a random thought... UwU

  • Memoiana

    Or you could just buy a hair trimmer. 🤪


    I’m not going to point it out like most of the d-bags on the internet would.....and I don’t wanna scroll down and count, but how many people corrected the Holyfield- Ali comment?

    Probably a little late on this, but I've got a real-world problem. Admittedly, it's not a serious problem, and it's a problem that I actually no longer have because I solved it in my own way, but it's a problem that I think lots of people might share. The problem is a cat who isn't allowed to sleep in the bedroom. Cats really don't like closed doors, and will stand outside them and yowl, or paw at them, bump against them, etc. While I still had this problem, my dream was a robot that would stand guard outside my door, recognize the cat, and chase him away anytime he came near. I would love to see you tackle the problem of a non-violent anti-cat roboguard designed to quietly protect humans from feline sleep-thieves.

  • Gray

    hey man, I just started watching your videos and the stuff you create is insanely impressive. one question I have is what language do you program with? I am taking automotive engineering in school right now and they taught me c++ which looks similar, but not the same so I’m curious as to what you use. thanks!

    Love your creativity in the hair cutting field...I anm not sure if you have used different sized blades to get into the detailed areas of you design, but that is my 2 cents worth put in. You asked for idea's of what else to design...Here is my idea, as I am looking to make or find something for a special someone to use. I know some people who have limited arms reach and stiff neck and spine. Check out Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP)! This will let you know what type of issues these people face daily while trying to do simple daily tasks. Are you able to make a gadget that can brush or come hair, and style it nicely. That means that the brush would need to confidently reach all sides of the head and adjust to the height of the person. Ideally, this contraption can attach to a wall in a grooming area of their abode and not be cumbersome with arms sticking out anywhere. Neat and tidy robot needed, that can get the job done in a few seconds. Hope you try to tackle this one...Good Luck if you do!
