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.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A REAL PRODUCT
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.

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