Instructable user randofo created a seed spreading robot by using a Lynxmotion Tri-Track kit and various other robot parts. In this instructable, randofo details the building process quite well including pictures and quite a humorous tone. He details, the mechanical, electronic and software design of his robot illustrating each step of the building-process. If you […]

Cubiebot, a little robot made from hobbyist robot parts and cardboard is directing and filming its own documentary. As a matter of fact, many of these filmmaker robots are on the loose interviewing humans about their relationships with other robots. As shown in the video below, these cute robots capture the attention of the participants and invite them to […]

Use this tools to compute, the resulting robot speed, the required motor RPM, and the corresponding wheel diameter. Solve for Vehicle Speed: Equation: Speed = (RPM (diameter * PI) / 60) Solve for Motor Speed: Equation: RPM = ((60 * speed) / (diameter * PI)) Solve for Wheel Diameter: Equation: Diameter = ((60 * speed) […]

Instructions: Select the appropriate unit and enter a value to be converted. * Note: Weight (force) and mass are different entities. To convert mass to weight, multiply by gravity (9.81 m/s^2 or 32f t/s^2). ** Note: Although kg-cm is used throughout the RobotShop site, it is actually kgf-cm. Similarly, oz-in should actually read ozf-in throughout […]

The Robot Torque Arm Calculator is intended to help you choose the right motor for each joint of your robotic arm. The torque (T) required at each joint is calculated as a worst case scenario (lifting weight at 90 degrees). Ensure your units are consistent. Most common units are kg-cm and oz-in. Take a look […]
