I've been working on a simple animatronic Chinese Lion. This video was taken just after I'd written some simple code to test all the basic functions. As you can see, the motor control code for the larger motors still needs some work. You can follow the build here: http://ift.tt/1qZpqJ3

After a slightly surprising move away from a managerial role at MakerBot, former CEO Bre Pettis has finally announced what he’s working on: Bold Machines, an “Innovation Workshop” for MakerBot parent company Stratasys. Designed to be a creative skunkworks for the 3D printing company, Bold Machines will design cool 3D prints, work with artists and inventors, and even make movies. Pettis said "Our mission is to explore the frontier of 3D printing and partner with innovators to showcase Stratasys, MakerBot, and Solidscape 3D printers. We are still at the beginning of the next industrial revolution and I want to push it along by collaborating and creating inspiring projects that will break into new industries.” http://ift.tt/1C5GNPs http://www.wochit.com
Bre Pettis: “Totally psyched about the Solidscape MAX2 High Precision 3D Printer. Wax models are the gateway to metal models.” This is the most hotly anticipated 3D printer at Bold Machines. We've been drooling over it on the Solidscape website and now we came to get our very own MAX2.
A little tinkering from me that shows what you can do with 3D printers today. Most parts of this paper airplane machine gun had printed by fabberhouse.de (the rest of them are to buy via Internet or hardware store). By the way, I use a cordless screwdriver from China for driving. Eine kleine Bastelei von mir, die zeigt, was man schon heute alles mit 3D-Druckern machen kann. Fast alle Teile dieser Papierflieger-MP wurden von fabberhouse.de gedruckt (der Rest im Internet oder Baumarkt dazugekauft). Als Antrieb verwende ich übrigens einen Akkuschrauber aus China.
Just like his beloved grandfather, Avi Reichental is a maker of things. The difference is, now he can use 3D printers to make almost anything, out of almost any material. Reichental tours us through the possibilities of 3D printing, for everything from printed candy to highly custom sneakers.

Honda ASIMO Explained: Japan Robot Dance Off, UNI-CUB demo and More ★ WAO! RYU ONLY in JAPAN (Video)Here's a robot video that I found interesting:
This time John Daub and Joseph Tame go on location to Honda's headquarters and Welcome Plaza in Tokyo to play with ASIMO. Yes, we have a dance off, race, penalty kick shootout and more! But this episode also dives deeper into Japanese robotics. ★Description★ Japan is in the center of robotics. Robots have been a hit in manga, anime and popular culture for a long time (ex/ Astro Boy created in 1952) and Japanese are very accepting with the technology. Honda envisioned thier humanoid robot over 30 years ago as the ultimate personal assistant and in 2014, they've taken a very close step to making that vision a reality with ASIMO. Joseph and John head to the HONDA'S headquarters and WELCOME PLAZA in Aoyama to hang out with one of the world's most advanced humanoid robot. ASIMO runs. ASIMO hops. ASIMO kicks. ASIMO sings. We got to see it all. The Honda Welcome Plaza presents the ASIMO demo show multiple times per day free of charge. [2014 ASIMO schedule: 13:30, 15:00 plus 11:00 and 16:30 on weekends and holidays] Grab a coffee or tea from the ASIMO cafe and watch the humanoid robot show! The ASIMO project is more than just a robot. The word ASIMO means: Advanced Step in Innovative MObility New technology for giving mobility to humans have sprung up, like the brand new UNI-CUB. It;s like a segway, but it's all controlled in the seat with sensors. It's easy to go forward and backwards, even side to side without hands or feet! Joseph and John try this out at HONDA. It's super cool! Helping John in this episode is Joseph Tame. Special thanks to HONDA, Softbank and Aldebaran's Dr. Angelica Lim.
