I've been wondering if I could turn my haircut robot into a pumpkin carving robot. Cutting hair and carving pumpkins isn't really that different if you think about it - both cut stuff off a roughly pumpkin sized spheroid. In this video I do just that and carve some pretty amazing pumpkins with it. This was a bit of a sprint to get done - I can't wait until next year to make even more insane pumpkins with it!

    What would you like to see me carve into a pumpkin? Alternatively what else could I try to carve besides a pumpkin?

    When repairing a machine but keeping almost none of the parts, this process actually saves time as you just transfer the machine spirit instead of making a new machine spirit to inhabit the next version.

Also for more chemistry leaning stuff: Backyard Scientist and Nile Red. (Just to name a few) A lot of channels also have good related channels linked in their "Channels" tab. :)

      I don't think you would... OK, you would, but I really don't like the direction and problems he made for himself. The mercator projection is no where near as complicated as he makes out (the wiki article must have delved way deeper than what's required here). On the (unwrapped) cylinder X is proportional to longitude, Y is proportional to tan(latitude) There was no need to map the image to a sphere, then to the pumpkin, 1 mapping is sufficient. In fact, the sphere intermediate stage is detrimental. Since pumpkins carved with a photo image have a preferred view point it would be better to project a flat plane onto the surface.

      The software snaps points and shapes to grid, smooths out bent and warbly lines, makes rough sketches look properly straight and aligned. Autodesk and solidworks both have sketchbook components which do this. On PC anyhow. He's running Mac and iOS, though, so maybe different artsy apps.

    As your channel continues to grow and you gain more mainstream attention I'm sure it's tempting to replace some of the cold hard engineering you went through with simplified versions thereof in the final cut in attempt to maximize the spectacle factor and increase viewer retention. I've noticed a lot of the popular stem youtubers do this. As an engineering student (and probably your #1 fan), I'd really love it if you kept as much of the real deal in the video as you reasonably can. In any case, thanks for making these videos. They're great.

    If the translucency depends on the thickness of the remaining pumpkin skin and flesh, it depends also on the internal surface. How did you carve out the inside to ensure that the carving on the outside produced the desired thickness?

    2 questions. Question 1: Would LIDAR work to map the pumpkin? Question 2: What would happen if you freeze the pumpkin before carving? Would it come out better?

  • Fidget23
    Fidget23

    This is the second time I've watched this, what if you were to place the robot and pumpkin in a freezer, and cut into the robot while its frozen? I feel like that would give you more structural stability and cleaner lines than cutting one that is room temp.

    Hey Shane! You should totally build a mobile robot platform, so that you don't have to tear everything apart for the next project -- just add on a new module, or switch out a module. But I guess you'd miss out on the experience of tearing things apart and starting from scraps ^^ But still, I'd love to see how you'd approach this!

    Subscribed. Awesome channel. I'd do this kind of thing if I had the money and know-how.

    The fact that you admitted to feeling inadequate while working on this project and figuring out some of the harder math really gave me so much peace lol. It sounds stupid but it kind of reminded me that you’re genuinely just a person with a skill and a passion, and not a super genius engineer (though I’m not convinced you aren’t)

      @Egwene22 hell yeah. I’m not so much trying to say he’s not incredibly smart, but just that everything he does he has to struggle and figure out, and I imagine he relies heavily on previous experiences, and not so much just trying to figure things out as they come up.

      @Egwene22 it's obvious but it still seems that he's underrated and humble lol. I'm a professor in electrical engineering by 27 and has a lot of mastery in different fields. But he is god tier. He does everything by himself and I don't even know what to say lol.

      I'm no engineer, but I suspect the machines he builds are somehow translatable into either a paid job or saleable eventually. Either way, they are so fun and interesting to watch. So happy Smarter Every Day sent me over here!

    Have you thought about using one the small portable 3D scanners to get the exact topography of the pumpkin? It seems it be a much easier way to get the data you need.

      @Kim Dőng Umm Pro Interracial Couples there’s more than one person with high metabolism. It’s just that no ones likes your assumptions and telling you that your assumptions are wrong and you’re making yourself sound like someone who does in fact believe in the flat earth theory

      ​@Kim Dőng Umm Pro Interracial Couples First, I have not reached legal drinking age yet. Second, i don't favor sweets. I like spicy/unami flavored food. third, I'm an Atheist and fourth, i have a fast metabolism and i basically never gain weight no matter how much i eat. i look like a pencil rn. I don't care about whatever devil, god, corporate thing you talk about. If it makes people happy, let them celebrate it. My family's Asian and don't celebrate many holidays but we always celebrate Christmas, and have been doing Halloween till Covid. we celebrate Chinese new years, and more. I'm trying to learn Japanese, become a Mangaka, learn guitar, get better at Beat saber, get better at Rocket League, clean up the house (since no one does), do projects, learn to code, take care of a cat and snake, learn muscle anatomy, basic human needs, socialize with friends (online), get faster at the Rubik's cube, get better at lock picking, and do school/homework, all fit inside 15 hours a day with a Procrastination problem. I think i have more things to complain about than you and your "evil corporate" problems. Go get a life. And before anyone comments about me spending time commenting, I'm just about to sleep so this doesn't take any of my time.

      @Kim Dőng Umm Pro Interracial Couples i knew you would say that. i do not believe Halloween is some sort of ritual. it's a fun holiday and i have no means to remove that. and most people aren't getting annoyed by kids knocking at their door. our family buys lots of candy for the kids that will come to get it. it makes them feel happy, which in return will make us happy. people know this tradition and purposefully buy candy for the kids WILLINGLY. no one says you have to get candy. just because you get annoyed doesn't mean everyone on earth does. i don't have to believe in religion to celebrate christmas or halloween. oh, so should i just stay by the side not being in family activities during christmas, or make my friends disappointed by not coming in halloween. people get candy to give to kids, if no one takes the candy that just wastes their money. people don't have to be vegan to only eat vegetables do they? people don't have to stop eating meat if they like animals right? so why should i have to believe in it to have fun in halloween.

    Is it cutting the pumpkin the same way it would cut wood? I know that different plants have different textures so cutting something that is softer or fleshier like a pumpkin or eggplant would be different than cutting something that is drier or stiffer like crisp lettuce or even wood.

    "Making the robot is only a small part of the work. Think of it as the appetizer. The real meat is the software" As an EE, this resonated on so many levels

    hey i was also looking to buy the tools and equipment you use in your videos, could you tell us the names and the list of the equipment you use and how much would they cost?

    Do like a workspacetour, with all your tools. And with some extra explanation about how it works and what you've already created with it. It gives you a really good opportunitie to make a compilation of your videos.
