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.
Just a quick build today to demonstrate how the One Inch Punch can be used to make a swiveling tool mount. This One Inch Punch is one of the prototypes, excuse the solder - we didn’t have any production ones left in stock! This tool mount could be used as the basis for an arm, engraver, sensor or camera mount, controlled externally or by another One Inch Punch on the same bus.
We took the pan/tilt mount from Wednesday and added Bluetooth support. People were asking if the One Inch Punch could be made wireless, and the answer is “in about twenty minutes”. Plans after the break. This is a small demonstration showing that the One Inch Punch bus can be accessed wirelessly, such as this HC-05 Bluetooth Module. This allows more widespread or mobile automation solutions, such as drones, to rely on the One Inch Punch for internal control, and a remote control for an external interface.
This ice cream dispenser was built in collaboration with Tarlow Design Not only was it a delicious project, but it lead to the creation of the One Inch Punch Controller! The One Inch Punch is a common serial bus controller with only one square inch of footprint, with built in motor, servo, and secondary serial I/O. Even alone, the One Inch Punch is powerful enough to control individual tools, such as a drill press, winch, or hopper.
We are now a technical cosponsor with Minesweepers Towards a Landmine-Free World by contributing NAVCOM AI technology to the competitors in Malaysia. We are proud to help make the world a safer place. Land mines are a serious problem, and we are excited to be able to contribute to their removal. Take a look at www.landminefree.org for more information about our participation and what their organization is doing to remove land mines.
We participated in Battlebots 2015 by providing the firmware and some of the electronics for Inertia Labs' Bronco heavyweight battlebot. Check out the show on ABC starting today! Bronco's first fight will broadcast June 28th.
The next step after space was obviously the awesome indie game Kerbal Space Program. We built another solar rover and sent it to the developers, as thanks for adding rovers into the game.
Most of everything we sell is open source and open schematic � Jodi has built an Android rover based on the antbot design, with minimal help from us. Take a look!
