blimpduino 2.0: updates
| |

Hi everyone!

We are now moving the blimpduino project to the next stage: PCB manufacturing (mrobotics.io is working on it now. Thanks Jordi!) The electronics has passed all the tests and the Arduino CODE is 70%-ish done. I have to confess that this "robot" development is being quite exciting. The blimpduino 2.0 has been created with the primary goal of being suitable and capable of controlling as many balloons types as possible. No matter its size or shape.

First version of the blimpduino. And yes... you can control it touching your smartphone´s screen or just using a Bluetooth controller connected to the smartphone.

New KIT: B-robot EVO
| |

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. 

Take a look at 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!.

The B-robot EVO goes OFF-ROAD

off road small

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

Plot Clock: jjrobots version
| |

plot clock jjrobots
We have been adapting the very popular Plot clock (from Johannes and with contributions from Kjetil Egeland) to the current jjRobots electronics (Brain Shield). The idea is to connect this new version of the Plot clock to internet allowing it to read the time from any internet clock (google/microsoft/nasa...any with a ntp service) and other info (local weather forecast, temperature...etc)...

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.

Air Hockey Robot (3D printer hack)
|

Based on the original Air Hockey robot, this new Air Hockey Robot EVO is much easier to set-up and deploy. Controlled by your own smartphone using the freely available APP

A challenging robot, perfect to have fun and learn robotics at the same time

It is faster, easily modifiable and shares the electronics and ancillary elements with others jjRobots like the iBoardbot, B-robot EVO. Sphere-O-Bot (and more to come!)

  

iBoardBot. The internet controlled drawing robot
| |
The internet controlled drawing robot.

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)
| |

intro6

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.
