Air Hockey Robot (3D printer hack)

  I have seen several interesting projects of robots that paint or manufacture PCBs, etc ... but I was looking for something different...

  My daughter loves the Air Hockey game and I love robotics so one day an idea born in my mind... can I construct...??... Mmmmm .... it seemed very complicated and with many unresolved questions (puck detection??, robot speed??), but that is also part of the fun...
The Air hockey finished
  Based on the idea of use standard RepRap 3D printer parts :
NEMA17 stepper motors, drivers, Arduino Mega, RAMPS, belts , bearings, rods, printed pieces ... I started to develop the project...
New KIT: B-robot EVO

B-robot EVO
The NEW B-robot EVO KIT
We have received some emails asking for this KIT: A set that includes EVERYTHING. So, during the nights, we have been working hard in the dungeon finding the best possible stepper motors, servos, buttons... and creating and stocking this new KIT. Everything is included, previously thoroughly tested so you only need to assemble it.  Have a look to the video and watch how it behaves now!:

Portable remotely controlled LASER POINTER
The laser pointer
The laser pointer...pointing
Well, this is a side project. Using the same B-robot electronic Brain SHIELD and two servos you can remotely control (via Smartphone´s WIFI) a laser pointer and play with it from far away (maximum range up to 50-60 meters). It is portable if you use a small 7-9 volts battery (Lipo/Alkaline/...). Drive your neighbour´s cat crazy from a distance by placing the robot on the roof!. More info here!
StarTRACKER (night Sky photography)
The StarTRACKER is an equatorial mounting for night sky photography. Basically: To take long-exposure astrophotos of objects that are too faint to be seen, you will need a polar-aligned equatorial mounting that allows you to track the stars during their exposure to compensate the Earth's rotation.   startracker setting up

The B-robot EVO goes OFF-ROAD

Aaaand the B-robot EVO off-road version is here.

It has been easy to modify the original B-robot EVO adding new Off-road wheels (regular 83 mm diameter RC buggy wheels, quite easy to get and inexpensive). If you already have a B-robot, just modified the parameters indicated below in its code or upload this slightly modified CODE version to the Arduino:  BROBOT OFFROAD

The internet controlled drawing robot.

JJRobots, proudly presents... the iBoardbot!

An internet controlled robot capable of writing+drawing (and wiping!) on a glass surface. The iBoardbot is a robot connected to the internet capable of writing texts and drawing with great precision. Also, it can erase in a quick and effective way.   Send to your iBoardbot your information from any part of the world. As it has a multi-user interface you can also play and challenge your kids, use it as a collaborative notice board or as a twitter wall in your shop window. Have fun and enjoy learning how to assemble your iBoardbot!
B-ROBOT (a remotely controlled self balancing robot)
| |


B-ROBOT is a remotely controlled self-balancing arduino robot created with 3D printed parts. With only two wheels, B-ROBOT is able to maintain its balance all the time by using his internal sensors and driving the motors. You can control your Robot, making him move or spin,  by sending commands via a Smartphone, Tablet or PC while it maintains its balance.
