3D Printed Linear actuator

The bugbear was thinking of a way to attach a feedback potentiometer to the worm screw...

....I tried linear potentiometers however they were limited in length...

Graphene Rocks

I have been searching for some conductive ink for some projects for some time now, its not so easy to get and very expensive.

I have been following :- Robert Murray Smith he is a prolific designer .... of all sorts....

Luckily for me he is currently working on a series of Graphene based products - one of which is conductive ink (just what G needs)

 

Gets you in touch with the world
This is a displacement resistance type touch sensor. It uses conductive foam as the resistive element. If you would like to see a video Walk-through of how to … Read more

Generals "Army"

Whats up the Generals Sleevy ?

His Army of course.......

Robot arm is build ... works better than calculated.... just one more bit to print to connect it to the S2 unit.

Neo

My S2 Neo Pixel Leds  thanks for the work with the NeoPixel code from Duane.... keep up the good work ;-)


They will be used as visual panel for battery voltage &or distance to object &or snazzy RoboCop look &or KittCar scanner lights

RoboCop or Millennium Falcon

RGB appears to be working.... however I need a Sponsor for some NeoPixle strips......

Take_in shape


I have allowed for 2 sets of 5mm holes for the S2s power/indication leds which I will be porting off the main board.

LOGO :- UV Laser Style

Parallax Scribbler (S2) Robot - Ultra Violet Laser & XBee & LOGO (Part 2 of 5)

This is the second in a series of 5 Videos going from basic to advanced hacking of the S2 robot.

This second modification uses an UltraViolet Laser (the one I use can be focused for really thin line details)
