About a year ago I started to build my first own robot. I discovered a voice-controlled robot from the company “embodied” in a YouTube video “Moxie”. I wanted the thing right away. But the first setback - delivery only USA - subscription only with residence USA - language that the robot understands and speaks, only English.
So I thought I’d try it myself. With Blender I designed the first models (inspired by “Moxie”) and prepared parts for my Ender3 - 3d printer. After countless misprints, I am finally satisfied with the current prototype and dare to show it.

Currently I’m using a disassembled “JD-Robot” from EZ-Robot for the inner workings. The printed parts are made of PLA. MARLAs shall be equipped with these components:
- 1.) EZB - servo controller
- 2.) Raspberry Pi 4B or similar
- 3.) Mini projector including sound box
How could I power all three components with one power source? Do you have any tips on where I can find something about power sources for robots?
