Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 7, 2013 12:02 PM

I love Mindstorms and Lego Robotics. As a middle school teacher in the 80's I'd hold sumo wrestling robot tournaments for the kids. All teams started with the same tools.  Winners were the best pushers!  Motivation was off the charts.

785 Gear Rack Kit (637170)

785 Gear Rack Kit (637170) | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

The 785 Gear Rack Kit is a simple way to create linear motion using a rotational servo. The kit comes with the multi-rotation Hitec HS-785HB servo which allows for up to 9.6” of travel when sending the proper PWM signal from a servo controller. The kit is constructed of 6061 T6 aluminum components and wear resistant Delrin plastic to create a durable yet lightweight assembly. The framework has several mounting options and integrates seamlessly with the rest of the Actobotics line of products. The 785 Gear Rack Kit is great for steering racks and other applications that require linear motion using a PWM signal. All the hardware is included. For details on the assembly process, be sure to check out our assembly video (coming soon!). ..Read More....

Watch "Tiny µTug Robot Pulls 2000x its Weight While Adhering to Glass Surface" Video at Engineering TV

Watch "Tiny µTug Robot Pulls 2000x its Weight While Adhering to Glass Surface" Video at Engineering TV | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
A 12 gram µTug (micro tug) robot moves objects 2000 times its size on glass (steel objects without wheels or lubrication) enabled by gecko adhesives. This capability is comparable to a human dragging a blue whale. Even if the human was strong enough, their shoes would just slip making this impossible without this micro robot's special gecko inspired "shoes."

Someone’s Gotta Do It: This Collaborative Robot Does the Dull Jobs Few Humans Want

Someone’s Gotta Do It: This Collaborative Robot Does the Dull Jobs Few Humans Want | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

A manufacturing robot is hardly chummy chap. Set off from its flesh-and-blood coworkers inside a safety cage, its powerful metal biceps easily lift, weld and shape massive machine parts. People can watch it in awe from a distance, but they better keep away or risk injury.

That’s why, despite the appeal robots have for the human imagination, the machines are still automating only a thin slice of the manufacturing process. “If we want to move on, we have to start asking different questions about automation,” says Jim Lawton, chief marketing officer of Rethink Robotics. His Boston-based company developed a fix for the problem: Baxter, a collaborative robot, or Cobot, which works with people. “We need to free robots from their cages,” Lawton says. ..Read More....
