This planetary gearbox has been designed to reduce the backlash and hysteresis but at the same time to be easily printed and assemble. Three “planets” and the “sun” are contained inside a 60 teeth corona providing a 1:5 reduction. It has been proved that the 1:5 ratio has a very … Read More
Tweakers.net got an Air Hockey Robot KIT time ago, and they just published a post about the kit. For non-Dutch fluent speakers 😀 you can overlay youtube´s translated captions to the video from the options menu (quite handy, I have … Read More
From time to time, we see cool modifications and add-ons for the B-robot EVO 2: custom arms, new uses for a second servo output, new Arduino codes…etc. These two, listed below, add something new to the B-robot “World”: Led eyes! … Read More
We are declared fans the MAKE: magazine since its very beginning. The quality of their issues and attention to details explaining projects make them affordable to everyone interested in the MAKER World / Robotics + Electronics The review of the … Read More
This is a side project, a rotating display created from the CAMERA SLIDER WITH OBJECT TRACKING project. It is a quite straightforward “robot” to do, as every element has been used with the CAMERA SLIDER. But they are some minor … Read More
We are currently working (while we finish the control APPs of the blimpduino) in the SCARA robotic arm. The point of posting this on the web is to ask you for comments/ideas and any feedback. As we are still at this developing stage, we have time to re-think some aspects/features of this robot. A powerful, fast and reliable arm is the basic of modern robotics so… we wanted to “create” one but using regular “MAKER´s World” elements like NEMA17 motors, affordable electronics and common ancillary elements (GT2 timing belt, steel rod, aluminium tubes).
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.[caption id="attachment_5558" align="aligncenter" width="1119"] 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.[/caption]
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
