UAV Flights / Restrictions / Suggestions

Posted on September 16, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under RobotShop.

Drones / UAVs are becoming very popular; the onboard flight controllers are increasingly intelligent and capable, prices for UAVs are dropping and people of all ages are becoming involved. Even small UAVs which fit in your hand can easily reach several hundred feet above the ground and the technology has quickly surpassed any regulations which [...]

Robo Sapiens: Witnessing the Evolution of the Human Race

Posted on August 28, 2014

By Mario Tremblay & filled under Cyborgs, Exoskeleton, Humanoids, Science, Sport, Wearable Technology.

  In many ways, the human race has advanced radically in a very short period of time. People born with missing limbs can now live full and “normal” lives, as can those who have suffered injuries and amputations. This is a far cry from the days when an amputated leg meant either life with a [...]

Leap Motion Controller and Advanced Human Input Devices

Posted on July 07, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Consumer Robotics, Robotic News, RobotShop.

Leap Motion Gesture Controller RobotShop recently received samples of the new Leap Motion gesture input device and see incredible potential for use with manipulating virtual objects as well as for control or physical robots. When you first see the Leap Motion device on its own, it’s almost impossible to know what it does. This little [...]

Ecovacs Deebot D77 Unboxing

Posted on May 30, 2014

By Julie Gendron & filled under Consumer Robotics, Domestic, Vacuum.

The Deebot D77 system will change everything you thought you knew about robotic vacuums. It is the first 3-in-1 robot in it’s class to empty itself automatically when it returns to it’s docking station. You therefore no longer need to empty the dust bin after every few cleaning cycles. The canister is much larger and [...]

... my Mini Vtail. First issue SunnySky Motors are just too big the wide pancake profile actually conflicts with the hex bolts for the frame (see my pic), so plan B, I swapped the SunnySky motors on my QAV250 for the FXC1806-14 2300Kv motors that I had on it. I was flying around FPVing on the QAV250 ...

I've uploaded a pic of my transmitter device at the moment, I soldered the positive lead of the battery box to both Vcc and Trig, and negative to GND. I guess I'll ...

... SMA connector, have some more on order just in case, and I got it hooked back up - going to test with the antenna out straight like you see in my pic. The curved way I had it setup, basically made it hook onto the branch and pull stuff out, so this may work better. Also with the RCX 1804 motors ...

I like the '328. And I've used a lot of PIC processors in the past. I should probably pick up a Teensy. as a small solution. I have two Teensy 3.1 modules now, and I think it would make a great super BotBoarduino solution with one of Kurte's ...

Maybe I'll learn something from running Phoenix code on these legs. Well, I've got family coming over, so ...
