RealSense D405 has two lenses, but it
seems that it can take images with
only one lense.
When incorporating it into the head,
one hole was opened in consideration
of the design.
I realized that it can't measure
distance with a single lens, so I made
two types of face, one with two holes
and the other with the entire D405
The latter one looks like Star Trek's
Yesterday, after using a laser cutter
at FabCafe Kyoto, I watched a Maker
Exhibits by the speakers include a
camera with the same mechanism that
used to photograph Ryoma Sakamoto, and

Located in the center of Kyoto, close
to tourist attractions.
To get a robot to have a conversation,
I and Yoshi might use a large-scale
language model like ChatGPT.
It costs money to use a paid plan of a
large language model via the net.
However, there are some free models
that can be installed entirely on our
We'll need a PC with a high-powered
GPU to use them.
The communication robot currently
under development has a minimal
configuration assuming portability.
LattePanda, which is carried like a
backpack on the robot, is a
combination of PC and Arduino.
A desktop PC is required to install a
large-scale language model .
We might fully enjoy new technologies,
including those that will be announced
in the future, but it will be
difficult to move the location.
In order to solve this problem, we
loosely coordinate the current robot
and a large-scale language model
Instead of integrating them, there is
a way to make them work independently
while maintaining their respective
For the RoboGames exhibition, I will
put things in two suitcases, a box
made for carrying in, and a laptop
bag. About 60K in total.
The robots are dispersed so that even
if one of them will be a lost baggage,
I can exhibit minimum composition.
I once had experienced a lost baggage

Since the robots have become smaller,
I have less luggage than before.
Cherry blossoms are the national
