The goal of the project is to build a small but fully functional gripper arm for a robot. The arm used is the EezyRobot arm, the parts can be printed with a 3D printer. The focus of the project is the programming of the Arduino microcontroller that controls the arm.
The Arduino Smart Car is an ideal entry-level project that can be expanded at will actually become smarter and smarter. The parts are cheap, the programming effort for the Arduino (programmed in C++) is manageable. With GPS and compass, it becomes an advanced project.
The "Falcon Not So Heavy" is an airworthy model of the Falcon Heavy rocket from SpaceX. The Falcon Heavy is a 1500 ton rocket, which uses a total of 28 engines to bring up to 64 tons in a low Earth orbit. What is really special about the Falcon Heavy, however, is that the three boosters of the rocket can be reused.
3D printing offers many new possibilities in building models, for example the construction of models that have never been offered commercially. I have decided to build models of rovers that have been to Mars or will go in the future (luckily there are not that many).
FlyRider is the fulfillment of a childhood dream: flying like a bird. FlyRider follows the idea to realize a manned drone with as little effort as possible. Which does not mean that it is easy... FlyRider will be a multicopter design capable of carrying a real person.
Is it possible to build a semi-autonomous "Mars" rover for less than € 750? That is exactly the idea behind the "Discount Mars Rover ". Instead of spending a lot of money on prefabricated hardware, the aim is only to use cheap materials and low cost electronics.
