What are we working on?
The Orion Explorer 1
This is my own robot kit - for sale on the site. What are we tinkering with, what are we using it to build?
- Idea - a directional distance sensor board
- New Voice Control Modules
- New Year Stock Is On Order
- All Our Robots are User Serviceable!
The CNC Machine
We bought a CnC Machine, intending to use it to prototype new robot stuff, and because prototype fabrication is a fun use of robotics.
Raspberry Pi Explorer
I’ve built an Explorer 1 based around the Raspberry Pi instead of the Arduino. I am yet to write up the detail of the working robot, and turn it into a kit (there were modifictions needed). Here is some video of it working:
Sweeping Sensor Explorer
After ordering some other robot kits to play with, I wanted to try putting a sweeping sensor using a servo motor on an Explorer 1 as another kit was using. This was a single HC-04 distance sensor instead of two - in theory this allows for a wider or more precise sweep - with the robot following through.
