Let's Make Robots!

Need someone to write a review of the Overlord 3D printer

Ok, here is the deal. 

We (Dreammaker/DFRobot) will give one standard Overlord Pro 3D printer away for free in exchange for a professional written review.

Here are the requirements of the person:

Insectbot Hexa

Later than expected but finally finished. The Insectbot Hexa is an advanced offspring of the already aging Insectbot Mini. Build with parts of dead insectbots the Insectbot Hexa was born, with more legs, more sensors and new power source,

I will do a detailed tutorial with lots of pictures later but for now I do have that one and a video.

As the video embedding is not working, here comes the link: Insectbot Hexa

DreamMaker Overlord sneak preview

Well, it's time to inform you that the DreamMaker Overlord is launching on Kickstarter soon. 

UPDATE: Launch time is confirmed. It's 00:00h CST. For less confusion I did list some major cities here: 

 

Wearhouse Arc- Wireless headphones reinvented

I will tell you a little story about Nelson, our hackerspace member here in Shanghai. Xinchejian, the Shanghai hackerspace is quite a breeding station for new engineers. Nelson did prototype a new kind of headphones which enables you to share your music with many others via Bluetooth and an App. Control play/pause, volume, next song etc. via a touch sensitive surface on the right earcup. But I will shut up now.

Gadgeteer Compatible on sale

DFRobot will make you cry by reducing all the Gadgeteer Compatible products.

Take a look here and wait for more price drops: DFRobot Gadgeteer Compatible

For example: OLED 9664 color display module for $US5.05 instead of $US28.95

May I introduce Sunny. He's a direct offspring of the famous InMoov.

Sunny - failed blog post

May I introduce Sunny. He's a direct offspring of the famous InMoov.

We started building Sunny (well, I am actually not doing much work but giving a helping hand and advises) her ein DFRobot for display at the Shanghai Maker Carnival in mid October.

Right now the head is almost done and we are planning to move down step by step.

The head contains a camera and a speaker to stream video from his left eye and talking via a Python script Espeak running on a Cubieboard.

Sneak preview - Yet robot related

UPDATE SEP. 24:

Now it's robot related, as you can see on the following photos.

DISCLAIMER: No robot was harmed during that photo shooting!

Alexandra with the HCR.

And Alexandra as a brain surgeon trying to rescue the InMoov we just started to build.
