This overengineered robotic clock will not be underappreciated

Reading Time: < 1 minute Arduino Team — August 17th, 2021 Normally when an inexpensive wall clock stops ticking, you simply buy a new one. However, ‘Developer Hendrik’ decided to bring his broken clock back to life, or some semblance thereof, using a 3D-printed four-axis robot arm dubbed “Serworm Michael.” Under the control of a MKR 1010 WiFi and DYNAMIXEL MKR […]

Holo Clock is a novel 3D-printed clock that tells time using a pair of rings

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — August 10th, 2021 Simply looking at a traditional analog clock sitting on a wall somewhere got pretty boring for one Instructables user who goes by saulemmetquinn, which is partially why they wanted to create a novel design instead. Their device uses almost entirely 3D-printed components that come together to form the “Holo […]

James Bruton’s robot uses three ball-shaped wheels to move in any direction

Reading Time: 2 minutes James Bruton’s robot uses three ball-shaped wheels to move in any direction Arduino Team — June 5th, 2021 Wheeled robots normally have wheels that move in a single axis and steer by using either differential speeds or by pivoting some kind of guide wheel. However, this leads to some drawbacks, the most obvious being an […]
