Bilibot: A $1200 Dollar Robot Built Around The Microsoft Kinect Sensor

The Bilibot Project started at MIT through the exploration of what could be done with the new Microsoft Kinect sensor. Besides being a great sensor for gesture technology, the Kinect is a powerful robotic sensor - so much so that robotics laboratories at universities across the world are replacing their $5000 sensors with the $150 Kinect! The Bilibot project takes advantage of this new technological breakthrough to provide a research quality robot at a hobby robot's price.   For $1,200.00 you get: an iRobot Create a Kinect (modified to run off of a battery) a computer running all the nessecary open source software a small robot arm that uses geared motors, and can lift objects weighting up to 3 lbs and all the mounting hardware, , wiring and electronics needed to put it all together.   They also have a promotion where they'll send you back $350 if you buy a BiliBot and program it to do something new and interesting and make the source available to the rest of the BiliBot community.   The current batch of Bilibots are sold out but the next batch will be available in September.

Sensitive Gripper with Integrated Web Server

With the WSG 50, SCHUNK is now able to offer a sensitive gripper that can be controlled via Ethernet TCP/IP in addition to Profibus DP.

SmartReflect - as Reliable as a Light Barrier, as Straightforward as a Diffuse Sensor

Baumer introduces photoelectric sensors with the new SmartReflect principle for absolutely reliable object detection. These light barriers create a closed light beam between the sensor and machine part. A separate reflector is unnecessary, reducing operating costs and increasing process safety. SmartReflect light barriers recognize objects of any kind.
