The Sphere-O-bot is a friendly art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to a large duck egg (4-9 cm).

The kit is based on the cool original design of Evil Mad Scientist

jjRobots electronic brain shield v3.0 (Devia)

JJrobots´s Brain SHIELD. Created to simplify the set up and integration of all the different devices involved in the jjrobots projects.

This SHIELD has:

  • TWO stepper motor OUTPUTs 
  • TWO SERVO OUTPUTs 
  • I2C communications
  • Push button (customisable)
  • SENSOR port (SONAR, IR…)
  • ESP12-E (ESP8266) WIFI module (you can communicate to this SHIELD from any smartphone/tablet/PC using it)

Some OPEN robots you can create with this Brain Shield:

  • B-ROBOT EVO is a remotely controlled self-balancing arduino robot created with 3D printed parts. With only two wheels, B-ROBOT is able to maintain his balance all the time by using his internal sensors and driving the motors. You can control your Robot, making him moving or spinning,  by sending command through a Smartphone, Tablet or PC while he keeps the balance.

  • The iBoardbot is an internet controlled robot capable of writing+drawing (and wiping!) on a glass surface.2
  • Remotely controlled Torch/ Laser robot: Laser pointer is a remotely controlled Arduino robot created with 3D printed parts. With only two servos, this robot is able to point any object in the X and Y axis.

  • Sphere-O-Bot: The Sphere-O-bot is a friendly art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to a large duck egg (4-9 cm).

The Sphere-O-Bot is a simple 2 axis drawing machine that can draw on most spherical surfaces. You can use it to decorate balls or eggs.

  • Many more to come!

awesome KIT photo COMPLETE

The robotic KIT you were looking for (and you didn´t know). Create very different OPEN SOURCE robots using the same electronics and ancillary elements. Everything can be modified, Hacked and customised!

hackeable

Fight battles with your remotely controlled B-robot, play with your torch from 50 meters away, send messages to your friend using the Iboardbot!, paint balls/eggs using your own pens or…create your new awesome robot from scratch!

Do you think you can improve or hack any of these robots? Do it! They are OPEN SOURCE robots, so all the info,know how and code is available for everyone. Share the knowledge! (and take a look to the JJrobots FORUM)

 

The robots you can create with this KIT:

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.

The Sphere-O-bot is a friendly art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to a large duck egg (4-9 cm).

The robot is based on the original design of Evil Mad Scientist

Features:

The Sphere-O-Bot is a simple 2 axis drawing machine that can draw on most spherical surfaces. You can use it to decorate balls or eggs.  This design also features the regular JJrobots electronics (the same we have used in all our robots). So you can create this robot or any other just simply printing new 3D printed parts and uploading the appropriate code.

The original idea belongs to Evil Mad Scientist 

The frame was designed by Attila Nagy

The Sphere-O-bot is adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but ping pong balls, Christmas ornaments, light bulbs, and (yes) eggs (duck, goose, hens…).

The Sphere-O-bot frame was designed by Attila Nagy and slightly modified by JJrobots. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable servo (SG90) motor.

The KIT includes:

All you need to create your own Sphere-O-bot. Just follow the assembly instructions in order to set it up (the glass of your choice can be added to the KIT as an option.See below). With this KIT you won´t have problems getting the right cables, power supply, belts, bushes, bolts…It is just assembling

The Sphere-O-bot is adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but ping pong balls, christmas ornaments, light bulbs, and (yes) eggs (duck, goose, hens…).

The Sphere-O-bot frame was designed by Attila Nagy and slightly modified by JJrobots. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable servo (SG90) motor.

It is easy to assemble in an hour or so, and only requires a couple of basic tools like miniature Phillips-head and flathead screwdrivers. You’ll also need a reasonably modern computer with an available USB port (Mac, Windows or Linux), plus internet access to download assembly instructions and necessary software (Inkscape)

.The onboard 16× microstepping driver chips along with the 200 step/revolution stepper motors give a combined resolution of 3200 steps/revolution in both axes. A universal-input plug-in power supply is included with the EggBot kit, as is a USB cable and one Sharpie marker.

The Sphere-O-bot is normally controlled through a set of open-source extensions to Inkscape, the excellent and free vector graphics program. You can create your own drawings (Above: Wines + stars design below) or use one from the existing repository.

Basic operation is much like that of a printer: you import or make a drawing in Inkscape, and use the extensions to plot your drawing onto whatever object you’ve mounted in the Sphere-O-bot . It’s all handled through an easy to use graphical user interface, and works cleanly on Mac, Windows and Linux.sharpies

The pen holder included with the Sphere-O-bot kit is designed to fit various art pens including Sharpie Ultra Fine Point pens. It can actually fit almost any pen of similar size.

You can even fit a lot of things that aren’t pens.

The Sphere-O-bot is an open source hardware+software project. Originally from Evil Mad Scientist (very cool robots), we have adapted the idea to our electronics and ancillary elements. Software, designs and use is exactly the same. . Extensive documentation about the original EggBot kit is available here.

hackeable

The Sphere-o-bot robot shares almost all of its parts and 100% of its electronics with the B-robot EVO, the fastest -remotely controlled- Self Balancing robot, the iBoardbot or any other JJrobot . Create your own B-robot after assembling the Sphere-O-bot!
