Hitec has just released waterproof servo motors! These servos can function while immerse in water and come in two versions: Micro and High Torque. Thanks to these servos, is is now very easy to create underwater robots or vehicles since the usual waterproofing hassle is no longer required. The Micro and High Torque motors are available for pre-order at RobotShop and stock should be arriving soon.

Artist Carl Pisaturo creates some amazing kinetic sculptures. His robotic creation, Slave Zero (video above), is an amazing half-human scale robotic creation with life-like motions which are controlled via an intricate web of cables. Slave Zero uses 21 servos to drive 41 joints and achieves incredibly fluid motion. [Via Robot Snob]

Here’s how to modify a servo for continuous rotation. If you’re building a robot, one of the first things that you need to think about, is how you are going to propel it. There are many different choices for this, including fans or propellers for a boat robot, props or turbines for a flying robot, or legs for […]
