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... (starting at $149 USD, ends Nov 28 2015)

 

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)

maxon motor’s - Exoskeleton Joint Actuator

maxon motor's - Exoskeleton Joint Actuator

A brushless DC motor solution for use in hip and knee exoskeletons. This complete joint actuation unit consists of motor, gearhead, encoder and position controller. Fitting absolute encoder directly at the joint rotation provides designers increased positioning accuracy. The unit will deliver 54Nm of continuous torque and 120Nm on a 20% duty cycle. The system can be operated on supplies between 10 and 50V DC and the actuation speed is up to 22rpm.
