Custom protogen commission auction (plus RF detailed specs)

Ha ha ! but you didn’t expect this right
what you did ?! Damn it, anyways
this video is for a custom protogen slot auction. Originally RF was going to
be auctioned off but since his completion there are already updates
that make the design even better !. His name is actually research funding the
protogen, a protogen created to be auctioned off. Sad story. Okay anyways RF’s design I consider to be my protogen 2.0 design and in this video I will
show you all of his features and you can decide if you want one of your own !
Okay first things first the most important vision and ventilation. The
vision is actually pretty good ! like this . Perfectly usable for most tasks. If you want it to be even better I can shift the top screen which normally is like here to
more like here so you’ll get like crazy good vision. Yeah it will reduce the
amount of top LEDs visible though. meaning you can see less top LEDs
yeah Next is ventilation, there are a bunch of openings under the chin which
are here. You can’t really see them but they’re there. And there is a large 50
millimeter fan sucking air in. The large fan is a high quality Delta fan and it
runs pretty quiet so it doesn’t bother you, like some of those small fans they
have a high-pitched whine that really bothers me, this one doesn’t.
okay if you plan on running around or wearing it for longer periods of
time I can change it into a more powerful one. The fur used will be
luxury shag from big z fabrics and it’s the good stuff yeah. If you
have any specific ones that you like I can also use that. The helmet will be
airbrushed which makes it have this very nice metallic feel. I can also do a thin
layer of epoxy coating if you want, that way it will be more durable and
resistant to scratches, but it will have less of a metallic feel I guess. Next
is of course weight and heat. RF here weighs about 900 grams which is
very light and is even lighter than some of the large bike helmets. Why is he so
light ? mmm magic! no it’s because he’s actually more of a
face mask than a helmet you see the backside over here this part there is no
helmet here, it’s all …I can’t really show you but there’s only fur here you see and there
are two elastic bands here and here that go down so he’s more like a resin head.
So there is only electronic parts in the front and this band of plastic here, the
other parts are all hollow so he’s very light yeah, oh and the elestic straps make him
more of a one-size-fits-all design*, so if your head is like longer than normal
or wider than normal he will fit you just fine without padding ! At least I hope so. Okay you should also be able to move
your head freely when wearing, meaning you can look at all the directions and it
shouldn’t wobble around. Plus he is now very energy efficient he only draws
about 20 watts max meaning that the LEDs don’t put on much* extra heat, so that’s always great. On the topic of energy the battery life is
really good this version now draws power from standard micro USB ports like this,
he uses two micro USB ports and you will need to plug both ports into a power
bank. Get a good one, a good one like mine can sustain about five hours of
continuous use which is pretty good I have to say, you can also bring more
power banks with you that way you can just go and swap out for a new one.
You can also use smaller power banks Now for the cool stuff, the proto 2.0 design has an ESP 32 mounted on a custom PCB I designed right here focus~~ okay so
this is the custom PCB I designed it’s really clean and shouldn’t break easily
yeah, it has a detachable ribbon cable too like here,
this ribbon cable is detachable and it’s a standard size so if you ever like
destroy it or something you can just buy one online and replace it yourself. Plug and play~
Now for electronics features, proto 2.0 features three screens, two 64 by 32 RGB
screens on the sides and one 16 by 16 top screen, they can be used to display
different emotions, text or even GIFs, as long as you can draw it out I can
program it for you besides the screens you also have the
two cheek circle things here that have RGB lights in them and I can also
customize it to your own characters design. Next you may be wondering how do
you control the emotions then? Well he has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in, and with
this custom app i wrote you can change the expressions and other settings like
either to blink or not. The app is most useful when you have a handler. If you don’t have a handler well, there is a port on the control box here that you can attach
buttons to. With the buttons you can run them up to your pawbs, like run them up here, up here to the claws and then you can just press them with your hand, any
paws will probably and the buttons I can include. Yeah so you can control it
more reliably on yourself that way. Now for the experimental features ! The
biggest one i’m testing is putting a highly quality microphone inside the
head it’s actually right here down in the chin, and with this microphone it
enables stuff like rave mode and voice control.
Contrary to popular belief rave mode doesn’t actually play music
by itself, it generates animations in real time on the top screen with music
captured by the microphone, so you can just enable rave mode go into a rave
and then it will start displaying its own animations you can also use your own Bluetooth speakers or even sing to it, yeah sure. Artistic screeching Yeah okay, Oh the next thing is voice
control voice control works like this, you will
need to wear a Bluetooth earpiece and then you will need to blow on the
integrated microphone twice like huff-huff and then the earpiece will tell you when
you can start talking and then you will just say the command like low power or
something and it will change the animation it actually supports multiple languages
because of the Google voice recognition service so you can speak in
Chinese or German or something yeah, and features like these are considered
experimental but they will continuously be improved with software updates by me
of course, that I will continuously provide for the proto 2.0 design and you
can flash them by yourself meaning that I give you the files and then you can
just download them onto it it’s not that hard. Sadly at this time I can’t
do Iphone apps yet so if you have an iPhone then you can always just get one
of those really cheap Android phones and use them just for this purpose
like get a second hand like $50 Android phone and just use it to run the app, that works ~ because this is a custom character
auction if your character has a different helmet design like this, or this, I can totally do it as long as it’s
reasonable, just don’t give me like a gundam or something and be like yeah~~ my
character looks like this currently the auction starting bid is
2,000 and with every $300 increase you will get a custom animation with a max
of 10 custom animations, and the boot animation will be custom and comes by
default, the standard face animation with blinking will also be standard and comes
by default and can be customized to your character, if the amount gets too high
for some reason I can also include some pawbs with 3d printed claws they’re pretty
good, and a magnetically removable tail ! The estimated complete time for this
character is two months and though unlikely may experience delays, okay I
guess it’s that’s all it for this video
