Welcome to 

ROBOTmaker

... getting innovative ideas into motion - no matter your age or skill level

ROBOTmaker is a part-time project run by a small team of makers, tinkerer's and kinetic artists with a passion to simplify the integration between DIY electronics, maker stuff, micro mechanics (mechatronics) and kinetic art - our aim is to help get your innovative ideas into motion.

We understand that, for many, the idea is more important than the method of accomplishing it. 

Robotics is challenging, exciting, and fun! For students that are participating in a student robotics team can  develop the real-life skills needed as a professional engineer: collaboration, teamwork and innovative problem-solving using limited time and resources.

To help you  achieve this, our aim is to provide configurable kits - complete with mechanical & electronic parts bundled together with working code and wiring examples; simplifying your project and the integration between mechanics, electronics and kinetic art -  helping you get your idea into motion fast. 

We truly believe interactive mechatronics, making, tinkering, kinetic art  & robot making is great fun! - no matter your age or skill level.


Through these webpages we will keep you updated of our progress. You can register your interest in our development. Our objective is identify channels to make the kits available.

We sincerely hope we can inspire you to take up this really exciting hobby !

Sensorium Project - Touchless Control


We have started an opensource 3D-360-degree Multi-touch(less) HID sensor project that uses our  360 degree IR sensor  for gesture control of Arduino, Teensy Projects and Java, Processing.org sketches and  eventually Android 3D App interfaces.  See video 




Anyone interested to develop their own sketches further is welcome to reuse our processing Sketches ...read more 


Micro Size Robot Chassis 

soon to be launched for robot swarms, robot gaming and nano sumo robot competition 

A range of Nano and Macro sized chassis will be ready for launching soon. The first chassis to be launched is a Nano size chassis with belt drive and nano geared motors. These are suitable for robot swarms or nano competition robot.


See our videos on Youtube:

 

 

The nano competition size robot chassis (25mm x 25mm x 25mm) will be first available as a 'pre-production' kit.These will be produced on a 'on-demand' basis in small batches...Read More



Miniature Geared Motors

We are stocking up with various geared motors, suitable for Nano and Micro size Sumo robot competitions. These latest Nano sized motors are a real beauty with 25:1 planetary gear reduction ideally suitable for Nano competitions!....Read More 

 





360 Degree - 3D - Multi-function programmable proximity sensor modules

We're launching a completely new 360 degree programmable proximity and ambient light sensor - packed with many new commands !  

Another great addition to your Arduino, Maker, Robotmaking, Tinkering, Processing and Java scripting projects!
  • IR proximity sensing (360 degrees)
  • IR communication functionality
  • 3D HID sensing for your robot, mechatronic, kinetic art or any other maker projects. Interfaces via simple RS232 connection
  • 3D Mouse Control (additional / software hardware required) 
Multi-functional programmable sensor module for 
360 degree 
interactive object sensing, ambient light sensing and inter-device communication for you maker, kinetic art or robotics projects. Touchless sensors are seen by many companies as the future such as  leapmotion used by HP

With a simple 3 pin RS232 serial interface, these modules can be connected to your Arduino, PIC, AVR project, enabling 
object sensing,  
user gesture sensing,
 infrared remote control of electronic devices, simple IR interactive communications between devices and directional ambient 'day-light' sensing (e.g. for photovore & photophobe experiments)....read more
