Arduino debuted a new programmable robotics platform at this year's Maker Faire, designed to be enhanced with sensors and easily programmable with sample code. We chat with Arduino co-founder David Cuartielles about how the Arduino robot is a good entry to robotics and why it's unlike the Arduino microcontrollers you may be familiar with.
Scott Parenteau, a commercial welder, made this mammoth walking pod inspired by his love for geodesic dome designs and Theo Jansen's Strandbeest machines. This lumbering robot gracefully strolls across the pavement, powered by two commercial dishwasher gear motors!
Cuddly is a mobile phone application which will enchant soft objects to enhance human's interaction with the objects. Cuddly utilizes the mobile phone's camera and flash light (LED) to detect the surrounding brightness value captured by the camera. When one integrate Cuddly with a soft object and compresses the object, the brightness level captured by the camera will decrease. Utilizing the measurement change in brightness values, we can implement diverse entertainment applications using the different functions a mobile phone is embedded with, such as animation, sounds, light etc.
