A WALKING ROBOT WITH A SINGLE SERVO

We’ve all been there — you see somebody do something cool on YouTube and you just have to give it a go. For [lonesoulsurfer], the drop-everything-and-build happened to be a little four-legged walker robot that runs on a single servo. Though it may be simple, there really is nothing like seeing a robot you created take its first steps. [lonesoulsurfer]’s walker is made mostly from scrap aluminium and other s ...

OPEN-SOURCE ROBOTIC ARM FOR ALL PURPOSES

A set of helping hands is a nice tool to have around the shop, especially if soldering or gluing small components is a common task. What we all really want, though, is a robotic arm. Sure, it could help us set up glue or solder but it can do virtually any other task it is assigned as well. A general-purpose tool like this might be out of reach of most of us, unless we have a 3D printer to make this open-sou ...

GorillaBot racing quadruped powered by Arduino

Instructables member Sebastian Coddington has created a racing quadruped robot using the power of Arduino. The race consists of a 10 m autonomous sprint and competitors can use quadruped or biped robot. The current record for a quadruped is 42 seconds for a 10 m sprint. The GorillaBot design is based on a five bar linkage mechanism for each leg, 2 servos power each leg for a total of 8 servos. “Seeking a bi ...

MAYBE ONE OF THE MOST ADORABLE OBSTACLE AVOIDING ROBOTS YOU’VE SEEN

We’re all pretty well-acquainted with the obstacle avoiding robot. These little inventions use a proximity sensor to detect an object in front of the robot, then circumvent the object accordingly. Brown Dog Gadgets’ little robot really caught our eye, mostly because it’s kind of cute. This little robot combines a few LEGO pieces, Arduino, and Brown Dog Gadgets’ own in-house invention, Crazy Circuits. T ...

TRACKED ROBOT MAKES SAND DRAWINGS

[Ivan] seems to enjoy making 3D printed vehicles with tracks. His latest one uses 50 servo motors to draw patterns in the sand at the beach. You can see it work in the video below. Well, more accurately you can see it not work and then work as the first iteration didn’t go exactly as planned. An Arduino Mega 2560 provides the brains and the whole unit weighs in at almost 31 pounds, including the batteries. ...

Automatic Gate Slider Under $100

Over the summer, my dad motivated me to look into buying a gate automation system and setting it up. So I started my research and looked into package solutions on AliExpress and local vendors. The local vendors were offering complete solutions including installation for > $1000. These were Italian systems and were supposed to be very high quality. But the price was way out of our budget. The systems on A ...

NIGHTMARE FUEL TELEPRESENCE ‘BOT MAY BECOME YOUR LAST FRIEND

After this pandemic thing is all said and done, historians will look back on this period from many different perspectives. The one we’re most interested in of course will concern the creativity that flourished in the petri dish of anxiety, stress, and boredom that have come as unwanted side dishes to stay-at-home orders. [Hunter Irving] and his brother were really missing their friends, so they held a very ...

ROBOT ARM SUCKS IN A GOOD WAY

Building a robot arm is fun, but no longer the challenge it once was. You can find lots of plans and kits, and driving the motors is a solved problem. However, there is always one decision you have to make that can be a challenge: what effector to put on the end of it. If you are [MertArduino] the answer is to put suction at the end. If you need to grab the right things, this could be just the ticket for re ...

RaptorLoc Pro – A versatile modular third hand system

The Story Dear fellow Kickstarter Patrons, at various points in my life, I’ve built RC cars, messed with Arduino projects, built custom computers, assembled models, added LEDs to my snowboard and so on. A common thread in these projects was the need to hold pieces in place while I soldered, glued or painted my parts. The usual solution is some type of third hand tool…and there are some good ones out there b ...
