That's amazing! And, middle school kids. I thought our high school kids were amazing doing a competition battle robot. This is something useful with real-world application. Nice job.

Not sure if you are a young person looking for something really basic to get started, but I bought and donated some of these kits to a local high school for their robotics class to work on:

Software / CRS Robotic arms...HELP!!!
« Last post by rstrohl56 on April 21, 2016, 11:01:05 AM »
I am a technical trainer for a community college. I have been trying to set up a robotics lab for several years but do not have the $$$ to go out and buy a system(s). I was recently given two CRS A255 arms with no software or controllers. That may be for the best since they would have been obsolete anyway. I trying to determine if it is feasible to upgrade them with aftermarket drives and software. What I would like to do is use step & direction servo drives (such as Granite Argon Drives) to run the axes, and find a windows based controller software package that programs similar to industrial robot systems such as Fanuc, Motoman or ABB. I need to do it all for < $10,000. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Robot Videos / High school students in Ohio building competition battle robot
« Last post by gtabasso on April 18, 2016, 11:42:54 AM »
We're sponsoring Euclid High School as they build their battle bot. I bought them the tools, titanium for the body armor, got the machining donated for them and am rooting these kids on! They compete on Apr. 30 at the AWT RoboBots competition. I should have some new video of the completed robot being tested this week, but this was them showing off their weapon! Listen to that noise. It's ready to shred. Their controllers broke last week; so, we bought them new ones from Castle Creations Inc. Anyone buy controllers from them? I did not have a great experience with the company. I paid for overnight delivery ($70) and got the controllers two days later! Too late for the practice session we had scheduled.

Thankyou.  Never before have I seen such a divine first robot. Matrix is Art. Videos 10/10. Congratulations. You are most inspiring.

That you posted this eleven days ago now and not one other person has posted to say hello or thanks?   

Wow.

Thanks both for the advice, that should make it easier at least. If I find a good source I'll post back for future reference.
