We had an interesting support ticket come in recently; an original L-Cheapo Mk1 needed a PWM adapter to be moved to a new machine. After running for six years, we thought this venerable laser deserved a salute. We don't play around when we guarantee our product for life. (We sent out a custom-designed PWM adapter, of course).

The L-Cheapo Laser Cutter Module has a new iteration! The Mark 7 is the newest iteration of the L-Cheapo laser cutter, with an even greater peak output than the 10W Mk6.
The L-Cheapo laser cutter is a great tool for artistic projects. Davide Antonello, a graphic designer and artist from Italy, sent us these photos of a monitor he rebuilt using laser cut plywood.
Our faceshield design is really making a difference. With shortages reaching extreme levels in northern Italy, especially smaller places like K's hometown of Verbania, we had to help. We reached out to every small fabrication shop we could. Eventually, we found one that would help. For the first week of April 2020, we were reaching out to shipping companies and fabrication shops in order to find anyone who would get our faceshields to Verbania.
Both face shields, and the PET plastic sheets which they are made from are in short supply right now. This project will let you build a face shield from any thin translucent plastic, even a bread bag, by spreading the plastic tightly with a 3D printed part.
With the shortage of medical PPE throughout the world due to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic, we have improvised an effective positive-pressure PPE suit. Our prorotypes have already been sent out to American hospitals. Here are the plans!
With the COVID19 pandemic causing shortages of PPE nationwide, Robots Everywhere has stepped in to help provide resources to our local hospitals. Our 3D Printers have been running day and night to produce frames for these face shields, intended to use semi-rigid plastic such as transparency covers from Staples or Office Depot. See below for the plans.
Nope, not an April Fools' joke. We will be using this space to share content related to robotics, lasers, instrumentation, space exploration, and all of the other topics we've spent our lives delivering to our customers.
With the COVID19 pandemic, restaurants and businesses have needed alternative delivery methods to reach their customers. Robots Anywhere provides an inexpensive solution to upgrade any chassis to cellular drive-by-wire, even in low bandwidth environments.
In Q4 2019, we spent a lot of time collaborating with a Norwegian firm called Aquaai on a very interesting project: biomimicry. They were developing robot fish, and conveniently, we develop robot nervous systems. This was a very fun team-up and we’re looking forward to working with them again! In the summer of 2019, Aquaai contracted us to start developing a control board for a robotic fish. We were really excited about this project, as many of Matteo’s most interesting robotics designs have been inspired by nature.
