The HR-OS1 on CNBC

HR-OS1 On CNBC

The HR-OS1 AX-12A Humanoid Endoskeleton is almost here! Last night on CNBC’s ‘Fast Money’ Brian David Johnson announced that Trossen Robotics will be offering pre-orders for 50 limited edition HR-OS1 Humanoid Exoskeletons on Septmeber 20th at at 10:00am EST.

Each HR-OS1 is powered by the Intel Edison, a full linux computer about the size of an SD card! The Intel Edison has a dual core 500MHz CPU, 1GB of ram, 4GB of on board storage, and integrated WiFi and Bluetooth!

This new robot is designed to be customized, whether you want to use a pre-designed 3D shell like Jimmy shown in the video, or design and print your own custom 3D shell.

The first batch of HR-OS1 units are expected to ship in January 2015. The kit will come with everything you need to build a functional endoskeleton. The kit does not come with 3D printed shells.

The WidowX Robot Arm Can Draw Better Than We Can!

TRC Member userasp9185 showed off some great examples of what you can do with the InterbotiX WidowX Robotic Arm. First asp9185 created a custom IK engine and control software in Visual Studio/C#. The ArbotiX robocontroller running the ROS sketch acts a pass-through, allowing the computer direct control over the servos. The software axxepts XYZ Cartesian coordinates and moves the arm to that position. A forward kinematics solver than confirms the position based on positional feedback values from the servos

The software can now preprocess an image to detect adges and contrast, and then randomly select pixels. The IK algorithm determines the best path to draw the pixel on the paper, allowing the robot arm to draw a version of the photo that was input into the software.

Be sure to check out this gallery for more information on the project and images that the arm produced!

Take Cover! Foam Dart Gun Kit Released

Foam Dart Gun Kit Photo

Look out for flying darts! Our newest pan tilt turret accessory is now available: the Foam Dart Gun Kit. If you want to add a little fun and firepower to your robot turret (or any other project) you’ll love this foam dart gun kit. The included single shot dart gun packs quite a punch, with a typical range of about 30 feet! After a little projectile motion calculation, we estimate the average dart speed to be 40-50 feet/second.

The kit includes everything you need plus several different attachments to give you flexibility in mounting. Combine it with one of our robot turrets, a crawler, or your favorite sensors to expand the possibilities. Check out the awesome game that you could make using this kit in the video below:
