Abstract

In this paper, the implementation of two low cost humanoid robots for the demonstration and training of Thai folk dances are examined. The robots are the “RS-Media” by WowWee and the “SPC-101C” from Speecys Corp. The objective is to determine the appropriateness of these two robots for use in the training and demonstration of Thai dances. The paper presents results from an initial investigation. The SPC-101C is more flexible and has more advanced functions. Interestingly, it was observed that some of the movements are better on the cheaper RS-Media robot. However, the faster response and advanced interactivity of SPC-101C definitely has greater potential for more complex movements and advanced applications.
