This Samsung Ballie-inspired spherical robot gets around on a couple of wheels

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — January 3rd, 2022 Back in early 2020, Samsung demonstrated their Ballie robot concept at CES, and although it never got off the ground, it inspired Derek Lieber to create his own version of a gyroscopically stabilized robot that moves with a pair of hemispherical “wheels” on each side. Lieber’s project, which he calls “Ballbot2”, is […]

An Arduino-powered micro quadruped that fits in the palm of your hand

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 20th, 2021 Arduino-powered quadruped robots are quite common projects for hobbyists to build once they are a bit more comfortable with embedded systems. One problem with many of the pre-designed quadruped platforms is that they require a lot of time to assemble owing to their large size. This is what inspired […]
