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. 😀
If you are eager to start on your own flexible robot building adventure, we have some fun new products for you!
Flexible Starter Kit
This starter kit includes all of the moulds, plenty of hubs, and an assortment of vertebrae. Perfect if you are looking to dive in and get started!
13 vertebrae pieces! This will allow you to get started building or experimenting with flexible constructions.
Hubs (10 Pack)
10 hubs! These are used at the ends of the flexible links so they can join the vertebrae.
Moulds (Flexible Links)
5 moulds! This will allow you to form your own flexible links in sizes 1-5.
They are all available now, so check out the RoboBrrd Store and get them!
Moulding Flexible Links
In this tutorial we will be designing a mould for a flexible link and making one with Sugru. With the link, you can join two other 3D printed pieces together.
This technique can be used to build flexible areas in a robot, allowing it to have more movements than being directly driven by a servo.
