Creating an online robot fighting game using Arduino MKR1000 WiFi

Reading Time: 7 minutes This is a guest post from Surrogate, a team of developers building games that people play in real-life over the internet. We introduced this concept last year, and have launched three games so far. Our final game of 2019 was SumoBots Battle Royale — where players from anywhere in the world can fight real robots…… Continue reading Creating an online robot fighting game using Arduino MKR1000 WiFi

Washing machine motor robots!

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Washing machine motor robots! Arduino Team — February 12th, 2019 Powering small robots could be considered the specialty of Arduino boards, but what if you want to control something much bigger? There are, of course, ways to do this, but larger motors are naturally more difficult to source. This hasn’t deterred YouTuber The Post Apocalyptic…… Continue reading Washing machine motor robots!

Squeeze through pipes with this six-wheeled robot

Reading Time: 2 minutes Squeeze through pipes with this six-wheeled robot Arduino Team — January 3rd, 2019 If you need a robot to traverse piping systems, what are you to do? You could purchase a (very expensive) inspection robot, or you could instead build your own like the prototype pipe-crawler presented here.  The device features six spring-loaded wheel assemblies…… Continue reading Squeeze through pipes with this six-wheeled robot

OpenLH robot automates biological exploration

Reading Time: 2 minutes OpenLH robot automates biological exploration Arduino Team — December 20th, 2018 If you’d like an easy way to accomplish repetitive biological experiments, the OpenLH presents a great option for automating these tasks.  The heart of the system is the Arduino Mega-controlled uArm Swift Pro robot, which is equipped with a custom end effector and syringe pump.…… Continue reading OpenLH robot automates biological exploration

Arduino Mega is the brains of this ant-like hexapod

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Mega is the brains of this ant-like hexapod Arduino Team — December 13th, 2018 Six-legged robots are nothing new, but if you’d like inspiration for your own, it would be hard to beat this 22 servo-driven, 3D-printed hexapod from Dejan at How To Mechatronics.  The ant-inspired device features three metal geared servos per leg,…… Continue reading Arduino Mega is the brains of this ant-like hexapod

Twinky, the Arduino robot assistant

Reading Time: 2 minutes Twinky, the Arduino robot assistant Arduino Team — October 5th, 2018 In the middle of a project, you may find that what you’re making is similar to something that’s been done before. Such was the case with Adrian Lindermann when he started constructing his “Twinky” robot and found the Jibo social bot had a similar…… Continue reading Twinky, the Arduino robot assistant

Robot transforms to slide under doors and more

Reading Time: 2 minutes Robot transforms to slide under doors and more Arduino Team — July 11th, 2018 While the STAR, or Sprawl Turned Autonomous Robot, is more than capable of traveling over obstacles with its three-pointed wheels, it can also make itself thin enough to simply slide under others as needed. This clever design uses an Arduino Pro…… Continue reading Robot transforms to slide under doors and more

This Arduino-controlled robot slithers like a snake

Reading Time: 2 minutes This Arduino-controlled robot slithers like a snake Arduino Team — June 11th, 2018 Would you like to create a robot that slithers from place to place like a snake? Well now you can, thanks to this bio-inspired design from Will Donaldson.  Donaldson’s project uses 10 metal gear servos to allow his robotic snake to curl its body…… Continue reading This Arduino-controlled robot slithers like a snake

Rick and Morty fans will love this butter robot

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Rick and Morty fans will love this butter robot Arduino Team — January 4th, 2018 Up until the present day, if you need butter, you simply ask another human to “pass the butter,” leading to minor inconvenience and awkwardness. Engineering students in Brussels have come up with a novel solution: a robot that brings the butter…… Continue reading Rick and Morty fans will love this butter robot
