Baby Bottle Feeder Toolhead

I'm using this on a industrial robot to automatically feed my 2-month-old.

I thought it was an interesting experiment. And it helps me to stay productive with other things.

  • fits the toolhead mount of a Fanuc LR Mate 200iC industrial robot
  • Clip diameter is 37mm.
  • Made to hold a 100ml baby bottle (Tombik TMBK0458).
    Leave a comment if it fits other bottles!

Programming the robot
I programmed the robot to slowly enter the crib and feed for ~ 20 minutes. It slowly tilts the bottle to make sure it is emptied completely. I can send you the program on request.

For security reasons, I advise you to stay in the same room during the feeding procedure. I also have a kill switch ready, just in case.

Don't use it to feed a baby!
The Robot Baby Feeder Toolhead is a conceptual object. It's part of a project investigating how our children might become a generation of robotic natives.

Please see the project page for more.


Rubber Coating

I spray painted my model with Plasti Dip rubber coating. Improves the grip and eases cleaning.

Diaper bot would sell more! Strap on some deep learning AI with low strength motors + force over limit slip gears (gears on springs) to prevent overforce situations + cry / shout / ouch audible kill switch, and I think you may just have the next home appliance. I love the power of suggestion here.

Hi, have you the stl for the arms?
I search it to do a desk lamp ^^

Love the Idea of the robotic nativism. Do you have more info about your project?
