The second generation of robotics is now upon us, as end of line and bench robotics are becoming economically accessible, robotic integration within industry is no longer only associated with large scale production and automotive assembly lines. Pick and place single arm, multi-axis robots are more popular than ever as users see both their cost and operational benefits. Capable of working along-side humans they perform the repetitive precision work required, faster and without fault.
This hub is the place to find out more about robotics, whether its kits or design ideas you need, or simply to just discuss more about this technology. Check back for latest updates.

4 months agoReally cool . But not every one own a laser-cutter. It's much more expensive than a 3D printer.
7 months agoJust caught up with this show, and yes I'm old enough to have seen the original film in 73. Actually the new show seems closer to science fact than science fiction. With today's developments in AI, Robotics,...

8 months agoHi zafrulumar!
thank you very much for your note. I didn't seen the attachments were no more threre.
Probably something went wrong with our new portal.
The files for lasercutting,...
8 months agoHello GianlucaRS
I do not see link to download 3D Printed parts. Please share. Also in your video you were showing a web page having details of Robotic arm cut outs. Please share...

For those of us who have been around a while, our first conscious introduction to the concept of machine vision was probably in the original Terminator movie when we were treated to the red-hued, augmented-reality perspective of the T-800 Terminator.

There have already been a few other articles on DesignSpark about the Braccio Tinkerkit. It’s not surprising really, as the Arduino and Braccio combination is a low cost (and great FUN!) way to start your journey into robotics.

When we think about robots today, they are generally rigid and made of metal, with sensors usually located outside of the body. This particular robotic hand of the Device Plus project is soft and sensitive.
