You might have noticed, RoboBrrd.com has a new coat of paint!
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!
Introducing my latest robot to the world, a tentacle mechanism animatronic!
This robot is a great way to dive into the world of animatronic tentacle mechanisms and explore different ways of interacting with a robotic creature.
Also known as Botbait, this robot moves organically, lights up charismatically, and enjoys interacting with you.
Watch this video to see it in action:
It is available as a kit, a kit including electronics, and customised & assembled.
Building your own Botbait is a fun way to start getting interested in tentacle mechanisms while building a cool robot.
If you are interested in the ‘making of’, I went all-out with this robot’s documentation and created an in-depth video about the tentacle mechanism. It’s 17 minutes long, covering the design, building, electronics, programming, behaviour, and lessons learned.
