We reported on the DARPA Humanoid Challenge before, but now we finally have a video that shows what would be the ideal winner of the contest, as imagined by the Universities behind the HUBO humanoid robot. Of course this is just an animation showing a perfect scenario, but as far as what is publicly known, […]

As we reported before, DARPA issued its latest challenge where they will require a humanoid robot to complete a series of tasks (worthy of an action movie) which include driving a car, breaking down a wall, and using tools – all with the goal of “saving the day” during a mock industrial accident. The challenge officially started today, […]

MakerBot Industries keeps innovating in the 3D printing field. Not very long ago, they unveiled the replicator, a more performant 3D printer that enabled hobbyists to print larger and more complex objects. Now, a few days ago actually, they released the new Replicator 2. It features a larger building capacity, finer resolution and a powder coated steel chassis that makes […]

Most three and four wheel drive omnidirectional robots cost $500 and up and are usually intended for the research rather than the hobbyist market. For those who have the knowledge to design and build their own omniwheel driven robot, matching all the parts can be a daunting task: finding the right motors, sourcing the wheels, […]

We all love Arduino. This open-source microcontroller is incredibly successful, mainly thanks to the fact that it is powerful, very simple to program, and has allowed the community to develop derivatives and accessories. Recently, there has been a new addition to the Arduino family: the Arduino Leonardo. This new board differs a bit from its predecessors since it uses only one microcontroller (no second serial […]

Besides loving robots, we love to eat sandwiches. So when we see robots making sandwiches that we can (probably) eat it makes us really happy. How to make us even happier? Make those robots DIY and made from parts you can find at RobotShop. The robots illustrated in the video use Lynxmotion robotic arms to manipulate the ingredients and Vex parts […]
