Carbon-based electronics with high degrees of flexibility. Metals used in electronics limited the flexibility of device and this ...

PETMAN Prototype – BigDog’s bipedal brother

PETMAN Prototype - BigDog’s bipedal brother
Boston Dynamics created a creepy biped with a natural gait. The Biped robot that balances dynamically using a human-like walking motion. It is a close relative to BigDog, sharing elements of the mechanical design and control. It may look very similar to BigDog, because it really is almost the same system. Named PETMAN, this biped system is ...

Tutorial: Robotic Motor Control

Tutorial: Robotic Motor Control
In this article the author will show you how to build A Robot by adding the electronics necessary to control the speed and direction of both motors on the robotic chassis. The two main additions in this portion of the project are a microcontroller and a motor controller IC. Since we now have a beautiful robotic ...

Build a puppet robot with one servo

Building a robot with one servo is not as easy as you might think, especially if you want the robot to actually do something meaningful, like mimic human behavior. But [Guilherme Martins] rose to a challenge to build a robot with a single servo. His robot is a puppet controller, in real time, it will move ...

Real life Pac-man using Roomba Robots

Real life Pac-man using Roomba Robots
  A team of developers have hacked five floor-cleaning bots to create a sort of OCD version of the game, with the Pac-Man bot sucking up little white rectangles whilst being chased by robot incarnations of Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde. The hacked robots used to recreate the 1980s arcade game are creating a lot ...

Skiing Robot

Skiing Robot
[Bojan Nemec] of the Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia has come up with a robot that can ski better than us without falling over. Not that skiing better than us is a hugely lofty goal. The bot is capable of skiing using standard, off the shelf skis. It has two systems, one system only does steering and balance while the ...
