EVB: Replace the brain of your LEGO® EV3 with BeagleBone

EVB is a shield (or called cape) for Beaglebone Black (BBB). It fully support LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 system, either the hardware and software! EVB is compatible with all LEGO® sensors just like the EV3 Brick, 100% compatible! It allows the EV3 VM to be run on the Beaglebone Black. What powerful is, with extra Sensor Board in EVB system, you can do more! This means you can add more sensors to your LEGO® system... (From $59 and end Jan 26)

 

X PlusOne: Your Ultimate Hover + Speed Aerial Camera Drone

The X PlusOne takes off, hovers, and lands like a traditional quadcopter, but that's where the similarities with a multi-rotor stop.  The key differentiator is this: In place of the quadcopter frame is an upward facing wing.  This allows the X PlusOne to pitch over 90 degrees and fly nose-first at over 60 mph (100 km/h), twice as fast as a traditional quadcopter!  Flight control is handled by varying motor speed to provide pitch, roll, and yaw control, even in forward flight mode.  There are no traditional flight control surfaces on the X PlusOne.  Thereby saving weight and complexity and ensuring the overall design remains clean and efficient... ($479 for drone and camera. Ends Jan 14)

 

The ProtoCam+: An easy way to build projects and prototypes around your Raspberry Pi Camera Module with your A+ and B+ Raspberry Pi

The ProtoCam+ is a 'breadboard style' prototyping board that holds your Raspberry Pi Camera Module inside the PCB itself, which lets you solder components around the camera lens... ($15 USD. Ends Jan 27)

 

Tektyte: LogIT Specialised Circuit Testers

The LogIT Series consists of two unique circuit measurement tools which both display accurate readings of voltage, current, and power while also simultaneously logging all measurement data to a MicroSD card and/or PC... ($100 USD. Feb 14 2015)

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
