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 […]

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 […]
