We recently launched a new version of brachIOplexus for mapping from human interfaces to robotic arms. The old release had a fixed mapping between the Bento Arm and an XBox controller. The latest release significantly expands the functionality by allowing for custom mappings and additional input devices including the MYO Armband and keyboard.
We made a short runthrough video to demonstrate some of the features in the new release:
We just launched the much hand-ticipated open source files for the HANDi Hand! The initial release includes all 3D print files, STEP files, assembly manual, and Arduino sketches you need to build your own HANDi Hand. You can also look forward to future releases of exciting related projects, including an inexpensive data glove for intuitive control.
We just launched an open source software called brachIOplexus for mapping from human interfaces to robotic arms. The initial release includes a multi-joint mapping between an xBox controller and The Bento Arm. Future releases will add support for additional controllers, interfaces and robots as well as options for custom mappings.
We just finished setting up the Bento Arm and HANDi hand at the Faire yesterday and now we’re gearing up for the first day of demonstrations! Come check our booth in the Expo Hall in ZONE 2. We are in the Robots section by the MAKE:Live stage and looking for challengers brave enough to play rock paper scissors versus the HANDi Hand.
