Why not to use two stepper motors to move a camera or your smartphone on a 3D printer-made slider and rotate it as it moves to track an object? Actually, the control behind this robot is pretty simple… Lets create it!
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.
That´s all we wanted to say. Happy 2018!, stay safe this Xmas and have a very happy and very interesting new year 😉

We are working in something…cool 😉 Pretty sure you will like it.
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.
Take a look at the video and watch how it behaves now!:
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!.

and will stay…forever!
This revolutionary (and not costly) new WIFI module offers a lot of features.
So, we have decided to embed it in our robot Brains.
lower prices and increased capabilities.
Now, for example, the New B-Robot Electronic Brain comes with the WIFI module already integrated, for much less money!
