Robot Videos / My robot taking its first (and wobbly) steps
« Last post by Sebediah on January 06, 2018, 08:52:29 AM »
Just showing off my robot Dorian who recently learned how to walk for the first time!
Lots of room for improvement but I'm quite happy with it for now. I've been designing new joints for him and also just received new servo motors that are better than his current ones, so once all of this is assembled I'll try to improve his walk a bit.

Hope you enjoy!
Misc / Introducing my humanoid robot!
« Last post by Sebediah on January 06, 2018, 08:40:52 AM »
Hello everyone, I just joined this forum and thought I'd take this opportunity to introduce my current robot that I've been working on for some time.
His name is Dorian, and he's a fairly small humanoid robot, similar size to the NAO robot. I was inspired by the old-school retro styled robots when designing him.

Dorian currently uses a camera with face, object and color recognition to explore his surroundings. He also has an ultrasonic distance sensor for object avoidance, but I intend to add more sensors later down the road.
Today Dorian can understand and respond to simple voice commans, but I am working on making him much more capable of carrying out conversations in the future.
He knows how to walk, but there's certainly room for improvement in that area, haha.

I'll leave a couple links below to my website (Very much a Work In Progress still) and my youtube channel where you can see some footage of Dorian if you wish.


If you find Dorian interesting, want to know more about him or have any questions, please let me know!

Have a great day!

I've been working on building affordable and easily expandable robotics platforms for beginners into the hobby. I am still in pre-production on three of the models I have designed and would greatly appreciate any input from the robotics community on suggestions that could make these better for everyone.

An example of our beetle robot version

An example of our spider robot version

We have some more info on these bots on our other builds at https://www.gadgetsthatgo.com

Thanks, Aaron
Mechanics and Construction / brakes for robotic arms
« Last post by Robo shankar on December 26, 2017, 03:34:18 AM »
I am building a 6 DOF robotic arm and i need to find brakes that will stop the arm from falling in case the power is turned off. What kind of brakes are suitable and in design where i have to fix brakes ? Or is there any ideas to hold the arms when the power is turned off ?

Hey all,

My name is Snode2, and I'm working on a project over the summer that uses the ER1 robot, as well as some other modifications that include using other sensors such as motion sensors, light sensors, and others, as well as attaching a different webcam. I'm a high school student enrolled in some AP Computer Science courses, as well as some PLTW Engineering courses and wanted to share what I read, I'm quite intrique with this blog http://www.powerjackmotion.com/make-way-smart-robots/ and somehow asked myself the same question.


I was wondering what will happen to people who works in meat shop or even in a factory, if government decided to use machines and robots as the substitute for human workers? Have anyone of you here watched, Spolarium? our planet is manage and under by Robots!

"Which servo should I use for my project?" - is a question we are asked on a daily basis. This is a hard question to answer as it strongly depends on your application and numerous other factors.   However, we've compiled a short list of go-to's among the hundreds of servos we offer - whether it's price, performance or even uniqueness.  Let's take a closer look....

Misc / What are your thoughts on human-like android robots?

Hello All,

I hope this is the right place to post a topic like this.

It'd be of great use for my dissertation if I could get some of your expert opinions on robots that are designed to look like humans. I have attached images of android robots that have been developed. I'd appreciate if you could let me know your opinions on the following:

What are your initial thoughts on their appearance, how do they make you feel?

Are these robots how you imagine a robot to look like, if no, how do you imagine robots to look?

Do you think designing the appearance of robots on real humans is a good thing?

Do you feel threatened by these robots in terms of their human appearance?

Do these type of robots scare you?

Any sort of discussion around this topic will be useful, so don't feel pressured into strictly answering the questions I have asked.

Thank you in advance!

Has anyone ran ROS on the ER1? I have ROS installed on Ubuntu Mate and ROS is working fine. I've been to this site https://github.com/arvindpereira/clover_hack_day  and cloned the ROS package into the ~/catkin_ws directory for the ER1 but haven't got it working yet. Just wanted to know if anyone has used ROS and still using the ER1?
