Meet the Custom RoboBrrds!

Here are the custom RoboBrrds that we created for some of the backers of the Indiegogo campaign (who backed at that level or above) πŸ™‚

Here is a video of them all flapping their wings and working:

Let’s dive in to what each RoboBrrd is about!

This one was supposed to be a ‘horse theme’. We weren’t exactly sure what that was supposed to be like when combining it with a RoboBrrd, but we came up witha nice sunset-esque colour pallet:

A penguin themed RoboBrrd! Definitely one of my favourites, check it out:

This RoboBrrd’s theme was to be simply, blue and white. Almost like a blue jay! There are stripes on it so that it can speed through the air very quickly:

And last but not least… a very special fancy RoboBrrd with the Brrds Nest front face! It was a blast to decorate this one:

We sent them on their way flying to their masters earlier this week! Some may have already received them by now. Bye bye Brrds!

It was a pleasure to make these four customized RoboBrrds. They took a lot of time and effort, but definitely worth while. THANK YOU for backing the RoboBrrd Indiegogo campaign! πŸ˜€

We posted two new updates on the RoboBrrd Indiegogo campaign, be sure to check them out if you are interested!

27 hours left! & RoboBrrd Dashboard Beta!

There are only 27 hours left for you to support RoboBrrd on Indiegogo! It’s the final countdown! Check it out here!

As you might have seen in the teaser video from last week, we were working on an application called RoboBrrd Dashboard. Now, it is available as Beta 1! Check out the video overview:


Watch on YouTube

This was made entirely in Processing with controlP5. It was quite straight forward to code it, the things that took the most time were in the details, like positioning, colours, and buttons. It also writes to an xml file, to save your current theme and servo positions. Handy!

Here is a screenshot:

RoboBrrd enjoys being calibrated with RoboBrrd Dashboard!

RoboBrrd + Dashboard

You can download it over at robobrrd.com/dashboard! It’s open source, check out the Github repo!

This is version Beta 1, so let us know if you find any bugs so that we can fix them πŸ™‚

Help spread the word of RoboBrrd on Indiegogo and share the inspiration of robotics! Thanks!
