From Kåre Halvorsen project on the Lynxmotion forums:

Sphere shaped hexapod that I plan to give the following features:

  • Roll freely like a ball
  • Have different sort of locomotion for moving in any direction
  • Variable inner-body dimensions
  • Transform from a sphere shape into a hexapod and vice versa
  • Walk like a hexapod

 

Project's summary on Robotee and original forum thread.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
