The Deskbot Pal, an animatronic emoji bot that’s easy to build, and easy on the pocketbook. The Pal can be personalized with your own 15 pieces of flair – or more if you’d like! It’s powered by an Arduino-compatible microcontroller, and requires no special construction tools, even soldering. This is Lesson 2 of the Desktop Pal series. If you’re just starting with the project, you’ll want to begin with Lesson 1, Make Your Own Arduino-Powered Deskbot Pal, where you’ll learn the component parts of the Desktop Pal, and how to construct it.

This tutorial series will help you design and create your own “Deskbot Pal”; an affordable stationary robot that’s super simple to build. Desktop Pal is made to be personalized. Deck out your Pal with your own custom flair and bling and then give it a personality.
Imagine that you are a structure of valuable data, and wherever you are going needs to receive this data in order to keep up, be in sync with everything around. If you use your car it will be pretty similar as if you are using a point to point connection, what if you car breaks?
American author, inventor, Google’s director of engineering and forward-looking prognosticator Ray Kurzweil once wrote, “We won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century – it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate).” If he’s correct, then the revolution in robotics that’s just beginning to pick up steam is likely to transform the world as we know it in very short order. What does this mean for industries of the future?
RobotShop announces the creation of a spin-off for MyRobots, The “Facebook® for robots”, which will be integrated into the Robot Lab network, the first robotic incubator. RobotShop, the world’s leading source for domestic and professional robots, has been developing, since 2009, a unique technology to allow robot owners and robot manufacturers to connect their hardware to the Internet via a universal API. The advantage of such a system is a centralized service which monitors, manages and controls robots and smart objects, and ultimately facilitates the coexistence and communication between machines as well as between machines and humans.
The MyRobots.com cloud monitoring service is officially FREE! All references to the initial token system (where payment would be required for data transfer) were removed on May 31st. This means that the current data transfer and storage service will remain free for all. Additionally, we noted that the concept of […]
The Global Cloud Robotics Hackathon 2013 is currently taking place. The hacking marathon where participants compete to create the best cloud monitoring robotic application started on April 6th and will be ending on the 14th of the same month. So far 29 teams from all around the world are hard at work […]
Cloud robotics is proving to be the most natural and efficient way to create and manage modern robotics technology. Robots are no longer limited to their physical, onboard components, instead, they are able to access an ever-broadening array of Internet resources. Last year, I gave an interview with RoboticsTrends.com on the state […]
