Delta Bot Test

First test by Brian Harms of a robotic delta bot controlled through Firefly.  Motor control contains no smoothing yet, and the servo mounts are all but stable.

Robotics Platform for Hexapods

The video demonstrates an experimental hexapod robot with an integrated Kinect sensor that tracks real-time human gestures. These are fed into a 3D model allowing the robot to follow and learn. The project was developed by Future Cities Lab R&D.

Delta Bot in Action

First documented operation of the A_FAB robot. It sits idle, stands, walks, changes the position of its end effector, and extrudes a material in specific patterns.  A prototype for a robot capable of creating brand new built environments for itself on a print bed potentially unlimited in size.
