The EZ-InMoov Humanoid Head is a groundbreaking and highly accessible DIY educational robot head designed to bring university-level AI research and human-robot interaction to a wider audience.
Building on the shoulders of giants, we have remixed the renowned inMoov Head design by Gael Langevin to seamlessly integrate with EZ-Robot products, making it the perfect choice for researchers, educators, and robotics enthusiasts alike.
The EZ-InMoov Robot Head Kit contains all the hardware and instructions needed to build an A.I. enabled InMoov Robot Head.
PLEASE NOTE: Plastic components are not included and need to be printed by the user. The 3D print files can be downloaded free of charge here.
- Seamless Integration: The kit design allows the EZ-InMoov Robot Head to easily attach to an InMoov body.
- Complete Component Package: The kit comes with all the necessary hardware and electronics to build a complete head, eliminating the need to source all the components individually. Simply download and 3D print the plastic components and build your robot head.
- Simplified Design: EZ-Robot reengineered the head with fewer parts, it includes a unified internal bracket, fused glasses, and a simplified eye assembly featuring a camera inside one eye for enhanced computer vision capabilities.
- The Power is in Your Hands: All the electronics and battery fit within the skull, allowing you to hold a self-contained, fully functioning robot head in the palm of your hands! There’s also a 3D-printable mount, so you can work on your robot head on a table or desk.
- Enhanced Movement: Experience greater up/down eyeball movement range and a standard-sized servo for head side-to-side movement, saving space and cost.
- Immersive Audio: A ported voice box and small speaker produce vibrant sound without the need for a large form-factor speaker.
- Customizable: Modify the open-source 3D (STL) files to create your own unique features and upgrades. Add a NeoPixel Blaster or simple LEDs to light up your head and choose your own 3D filament colors to give the head your own unique style.
- IoTiny Integration: The IoTiny wireless Robot Controller connects the head to a mobile device or computer, allowing remote control, autonomous features, and networkability with other EZ-Robot controllers.
- Versatile Power Options: Power the head with the included LiPo battery for portability or a 5-7.5VDC wall power adapter (not included) for continuous use without recharging.
- Comprehensive Software Suite: The EZ-InMoov Robot Head is powered by Synthiam ARC, allowing users of all skill levels to experiment with a broad range of A.I. including Microsoft’s Cognitive Services and Open AI’s Chatbot (subscriptions may be required).
- Mobile App Compatibility: Control the head with ease using the ARC mobile app.
- Advanced AI Capabilities: The EZ-InMoov Robot Head supports vision tracking, text-to-speech, and speech recognition. Enjoy AI chatbot responses, including ChatGPT, for dynamic interactions (subscriptions may be required).
- Emotional Intelligence: Conduct cutting-edge research on human emotion detection with Microsoft cognitive face and emotion services.
The EZ-InMoov Robot Head is a game-changer in the DIY/educational robot market, opening up new possibilities for research and exploration while simplifying the building and programming process. With its combination of cutting-edge features and robust software integration, the EZ-InMoov Robot Head can help you achieve excellence in the world of robotics and AI.

Learn about robots and have fun doing it!
Software That's Easy to Use
If hardware is the heart of your EZ-Robot, then software is the soul. ARC is an easy-to-use, versatile and powerful robotics software platform that scales with users as their programming skills grow.
Easily add advanced robotics functionality such as camera tracking, speech recognition, Wii controllers, sensors, Artificial Intelligence (Microsoft's Cognitive Services) and more!
Teach Your Robot Animations
The Auto Positioner in ARC is used to animate EZ-Robot movements. It's like magic! Simply move your robot into positions to create an animation routine. Play back actions based on triggers, such as when the robot sees your face or responds to a voice command. It's easier than ever to teach your robot how to move, dance, climb stairs and more!
Take the fun with you wherever you go! Use an Android or iOS mobile device to control and program robot movements and functions.
EZ-Robots are Visual Learners
A robot wouldn't be a robot without a camera to interact with its environment. Each EZ-Robot comes with a camera installed in the head, for advanced vision learning, detection and tracking. Your EZ-Robot can be programmed to recognize colors, objects, faces, motion, glyphs, and more.
Live Streaming Video
Get some perspective! Now you can see what your robot sees with live real-time streaming video. View the video on your mobile device or PC... or take it to the next level and add Google Cardboard or VR glasses for an immersive experience that allows you to control your robot using head movements.
Streaming Audio - Music, Voices, or Sound FX
Robots need a voice! The EZ-B has a built-in speaker to stream audio in real-time from the PC or Mobile Device. Play music, sound effects or even text-to-speech through your robot or IoT project.
3D Printable Open Source Parts
The 3D printable STL files for all EZ-Bits and robot parts are available in the ARC Software. Customize and 3D print your own robot parts and designs... and then share them with other EZ-Robot users from around the world!
