New Product: Flexineocube!

Flexineocube

It’s weird, experimental, folds together, and lights up! Introducing the Flexineocube! 😀

Flexineocube consists of two flexible boards. Each board has 3 addressable RGB LEDs on them (like the Adafruit Neopixels). You can fold the boards together to form a cube.

The material is very lightweight, so you can hang it from somewhere and have it wave in the wind!

You can get one now on the RoboBrrd Store!

It’s name your price starting at $23. Buying a Flexineocube is a great way to pitch in for some more of our experiments. 😀

New Paint

You might have noticed, RoboBrrd.com has a new coat of paint!

new_robobrrd_site

This is version 2 of the design of our website. We took away much of the distractions and bloat on the front page, so it loads quicker and with less data now.

There is a lot more room for new robots. This is great because we want to make some more characters. 😉

Also, we have come up with the name of the planet that the robots reside on: Zimpopodu!

You will find some pages around the site that are a mix between v1 and v2. The content is the same. New pages will use the updated v2 template.

Let us know if you find anything broken or can be improved. Hope you enjoy the new look!

Timelapse Video

 

Here is a short video of the making of the boards in gEDA! Time goes by so quickly on timelapse mode…

New Tutorial

 

We are including 3D printed enclosure ‘sleds’ with each of the boards. It would be very tedious to design these by hand, but there is a way you can export the pcb from gEDA into Inventor. We thought we would share this with you!

Open Source Hardware!

 

The gEDA pcb files, as well as the Inventor enclosure files are open source!
