Jason does a little demonstration to help illustrate servo torque in action!
This past year we've released a number of linear motion components helpful in designing your projects. We've also received lots of questions, so we decided to do a two part series on it. So, sit back, relax, grab a bag of popcorn because Kyle and Jason break down some common methods for driving linear motion.
We are excited to roll out our new Omni Wheels! Omni wheels have the unique ability to not only roll forward but they also can roll side to side thanks to their built-in rollers
As an engineer at Robotzone my job is to design innovative parts. The innovation many times stems from frustration with parts that are currently available on the market – either the available parts won’t allow users to build something a certain way or the available parts can be a weak link or point of failure. That's why we are excited to launch the new D-hubs into the ever-growing line of Actobotics® parts!
This project centers on the ServoCity 4” heavy duty wheel. I wanted an easy way of mounting a gear motor to the 4” wheel. Along the way, I decided to add 4 different clocked positions so the motor can be attached allowing several different ratios with the same motor.
About six weeks ago we partnered with SparkFun to launch the SparkFun-Actobotics Stairclimbing Robot Challenge. We invited you to show off your robotic skills and win some pretty hefty prizes from SparkFun. Needless to say we weren’t disappointed!
We don’t know about you, but we’re so excited the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is FINALLY out! In honor of it’s release we want to share the AWESOME customer project built by Dave Stein ( a software engineer and tinkerer).
The use of technology in awesome and incredible ways gets us totally geeked out, especially when it’s using technology for good. When our tech team started visiting with Frank, we new this would be one of those stories, where we would see something really awesome made for the benefit and wellness of someone else. Check out Frank’s story. It’s definitely worth a read….
