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.

Hi @davecole The assembly took about 4 hours. As a 12 year old you should be OK provided you are familiar with doing some construction using nuts and bolts or hex screws in this case. It is important though...
Hi @jefffo How long did this take to build? In your opinion, is this suitable for a 12yo to contruct?
An out of the box build for the new MeArm robot deluxe kit from Mime Industries. See the build and understand how the little arm performed. The kit comes complete with all of the products needed together with a Me Brain controller board.
No one really knows what the first prosthesis was, or where it originated, but we do have an inkling of where things are going in the world of Prosthetics.
My first experiences of AI - and thoughts on how it will get better.
We run Kids Invent Stuff - the YouTube channel where 5-11-year-olds can get their invention ideas built and tested by real engineers. Last week we released a video showing how we built 8-year-old Chester’s Creepy Robot Scarecrow, the ‘Scarecrowtron’
Ruth Amos & Shawn Brown co-present Kids Invent Stuff; the YouTube channel where 5-11-year-olds get their invention ideas prototyped and shown to the world.
The HKUST Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Team made history by winning the All-Around Champion and Safety Conscious Award in the MATE International ROV Competition 2017 which was held on June 23-25 in Long Beach, California, US.
Practical Robotics Institute Austria (PRIA) lately released a Kickstarter for their new product: the Hedgehog, an Educational Robotics Controller. PRIA created the Hedgehog with the intention of creating a applicable resource for anyone.
One of today’s big topics of discussion is the rise of the robots and whether there will be any jobs left for us less-than-perfect humans in the future!
Usually robots perform one concrete function. However, why not go beyond this and make a multifunction robot? If you agree, I will show you to how create a 3-in-1 wireless-bot.
The use of exoskeletons is growing, from helping people carry a heavy load to easing the muscular stress of repetitive tasks. We take a look at some of the designs and companies out there.
