Research is progressing regarding artifical muscles.
The Keplinger Research Group has been working on a inexpensive muscle called a Peano-HASEL.
Current stage of development is that it requires a high voltage to generate the electrostatic …
Many many thanks for that Joel. (Sorry I miss-read your name last time)
Even with the STL's one can enlarge or shrink using the printing program, or split the base if one has a wider head
Again many thanks for your kind generosity for sharing.
Yes - that does look interesting and one can solder the unit by hand if needed. There is a deluge of small SOC BLE chips coming out at the moment and all of them look exciting.
Even Adafruit has a dev board for it..
I know it's been a while but I have been dragged to other projects for too long a while.
I am always keeping my eyes open re new tech and capabilities.
Found this which offers a lot of possibilities re size, bluetooth, power requirements,…
With the original Star Wars special effects (and future ones) the artists would use the term 'Greeblies" which were essentially an indication for the makers to add in all sorts of little wheels/cogs/plastic pieces to make it look more impressive.
I know the Pololu units. Very nice with Scripting.
I have not had much experience with the 5085MG. I am purchasing one to compare against the HobbyKing HKSCM12-6 that I use. My biggest concern is noise as I have found many of the metal g…
Likewise you have been busy. I have been getting more into 3D printing myself however I use Fusion 360 for my dabbling.
I was wondering what servo's you are going to use in him.. and also what are ging to control them.
One of my current p…
Thanks for you input Chris. Its valuable information to know
I tend to use off the shelf video glasses as they already have been set up for viewing.. But I have had limited chance to play with 3D.
Again many thanks for your input
If I can use one of your pics as an example.
You have the servo's down the bottom and the ball joints at the top.
I am interested in doing this upside down so that the servos's are attached to the plate and the ball joints will be attached…
Many thanks Wolf.
Sadly I have offered the concept to several groups. They are interested but want "A Working Prototype" before committing anything. The problem is that I am at the stage where I need some investment re getting multi-layer boards etc…
I think you are getting a little confused here. The silicone used is only to capture the details. in negative.. of your finished work. From there you can paint latex in to the silicone to create a positive latex skin.
The reason for usin…
Often when you make your mold you have to consider that the process may destroy your sculpture.
You basically have 2 options to avoid the above. 1 is the preferred method.
1) First paint your sculpture with a silicone layer to preserve the fine det…
I feel it would help if you were to tell us how you were injured and in what capacity you are disabled. Brain injury can run from mental acuity, or lost of fine motor skills, to more.
Knowing that it would be easier to suggest area's of i…
This link has both Imperial (Inch) and Metric (mm) Catalogues.
For a country that made such a fuss about the British - you still love their measurements
