This is an OPEN SOURCE / 3D printed Torch/ Camera/ Laser pointer Kit. Arduino M0 based and created using common elements from the Makers/  3D printers World. Controlled by the DEVIA Robotics board and programmed in Python.

A very accurate and fast torch pointer. Can be controlled using an Xbox and / or PlayStation controller. Alternatively, you can adapt its Python written control code to follow any pre-planned movement (or do whatever you want with it).

Capable of spinning up to 360° in 1 seconds with a 0,1° precision. A laser/camera/flashlight can be mounted on it if required. Can be controlled via Wi-Fi from up to 60m away (direct view).

It uses two NEMA17 motors and timing belts to achieve that accuracy.  The construction is sturdy, and the base can be placed anywhere thanks to its “rubber feet”. Want to attach it to a tripod? Doable!

The kit comes with a harmless LED torch that projects the image of a mouse from a distance of up to 4 meters (optional)

Using this robot to teach my students astronomy

Well.. this is another use for this robot. Teach astronomy. Handle the laser with care! I connetect the laser to to power output of the DEVIA so it only works for a second before going off. I love how it works

The packet arrived with external damages

The robot is fine. Fun to assembly and set-up but the parcel came with a hole on it and one motor slightly scratched. Nothing serious. jjRobots took care of it. Thanks.

I wanted this robot for me...

But at the end, my son is using it to film with the DJI OSMO. Not bad but I will have to get another one

Just one comment

If you get this robot, pay special attention to the 6002 ball bearings. If they are not perfectly fitted, the robot will vibrate when performing sudden movement. Apart from that, 5 stars

Way better than any other servo based pointing robot. Its accuracy and speed are way superior
