Crowdfunding Projects For November

L Hetherington for | RoboticsTomorrow


Here are a few projects we think are worth looking into. Be careful... it is crowdfunding:

Ohbot2 - A Robot Head to program from your PC

Ohbot2 is an affordable kit robot and graphical software that works with your PC. It comes with an Arduino-compatible servo controller... (from £99, ends Nov 15, 2015)


Gest: Work With Your Hands

Gest lets you work with your hands in a more intuitive way. Switch between apps just by twitching your finger. Point at your screen to move the mouse around. Twist your palm to adjust sliders in Photoshop. Rotate a 3D object by literally grabbing it and rotating your hand. You don’t have to think about what you’re doing, just do it...

Makerarm-The first robotic arm that makes anything, anywhere

Makerarm is multi-purpose

Makerarm works with interchangeable heads for countless applications. 

It 3D prints: Makerarm is not confined to a box and can 3D print with both filament and resin.

It carves and mills: Makerarm includes high-speed desktop milling (light duty) and carving. You can mill on a variety of materials including plastics, wood, and soft metals right on your desktop. You can even hook up heavy duty flex shaft tools such as the Dremel Fortiflex to Makerarm for power-carving, grinding, or shaping applications (with speeds up to 23,000 RPM!).

It laser engraves: Makerarm’s high power 500mW laser head (405nm) engraves and etches on plastics, wood, leather, cardboard, and more. 

It picks and places: Choose from vacuum pump coupled suction cups, electromagnetic heads, or grippers to carry out pick and place operations. 

It assembles: With the assembly heads, you can automatically place and fasten screws, carry out gluing, and perform pick and place functions.

It's a PCB fab: PCB milling, drilling, solder-paste dispensing, pick and place assembly (PCBA), and automated soldering take the hassle out of prototyping... (starting at $1,199, ends Nov 10 2015)
