kind of Gizmo Site is one without ROBOTS?
Don't answer, I
only remembered to make a separate Chapter now!
First, my humble
hommage to most Politicians, the
Kit, fully programmable, for your pet idea, if it involves creeping
around, and performing insect-like tasks.
the same house, somewhat more interesting, the
ServoCenter, I quote from the page;
ServoCenter module allows simple, logical control of the seek
position and seek speed of up to sixteen connected servos independently
and simultaneously, and up to 16 (32 for MIDI version) ServoCenters may
be chained together to control up to 256 RC servos (512 for MIDI
version), with completely independent movement, from only one serial,
USB, or MIDI port. This
independent control scheme allows one servo to
move to a position slowly, while another is moving to a different
position at a faster speed."
either if you want a very complex set of Shop Window Dwarves for
Chrismas, a complex Robot, or Fabber, or a Garage Micro-Factory, go for
best builder shop EVER!
Want a One-Stop Shop for your
Wanna? Huh? Well,
now you have this:
These HobbyEngeneering guys do
On the robot
department, you've got more Kits than you can shake a screwdriver at,
but suppose you want to cast plastic one-off pieces, they've got
Alumilite, and for Electronics and Controll, they got a lot, too!
All building systems, Lego,
Fischertechnic, Erector, some I'd never heard about, like Bridge Street
Toys, Hidrodinamic building sets, and if that don't make you happy,
there's Books about all that, and Radio Controll, too!
So click the link above, and
become a happy Gizmo
It's late, and I'm
tired, but I don't care! I HAD to plug this last one into the page-A pager
motor, and you can see how small it is, by the M&M next to it!
I'd missed a lot if
I didn't just Googled "Robot", just look at this Site, that boasts THIS:
Battlefield extraction assist robot!
Fancy that, it
the wounded away from Battlefields! Could it be used for Firemen
Fire fighting guys,
better stay tuned to this one!
Below you can see
scooping away a Dummy, maybe tomorow it will scoop YOU off a tight spot!
http://www.botmag.com/ Back to
the Robot Kits, a lot of 'em, here's SpiderIII, from sciencekits.com, a
site to wach for Science Kits, becasue these are cool places to buy
lots of stuff for Prototypes!!!
course, can be a good choice for the Robot you want, since the
programming language is Open Source:
Terk and Qwerk- build you own robot.
TeRK, a new Carnegie Mellon inniciative, gives you a lot of ROBOT
RECIPES, made from off-the-shelf parts (my favourite recipes!).
that box on the right, apparently
a Gameboy Advance turned into a
microcontroller, running a special type of Linux, from Charmed Labs,
these Robots can be built by anyone, for many uses, so don't go
robotizing your Granpa's wheelchair without having a look at this!
Here's the Carnegie's link, BTW:
Finally, go to the Store,
the Robot Store. for Robots and parts:
