Lunar Rover
Prototype for Lunar X-Prize mission

We built this prototype Lunar Rover for SpaceLS (an aerospace company in the UK) for their Lunar X-Prize mission.

Curiosity Mars Rover

Our fully-functional 1/10th scale replica of NASA’s most recent Mars Rover

Sojourner Mars Rover
for NASA Kennedy Space Center

We built this Sojourner Mars Rover for an upcoming permanent exhibit at the NASA Kennedy Space Center. We are currently working toward authorization for an 8 robot installation including Sojourner, Spirit, and Curiosity rovers.

Mars Rover
New York Hall of Science

We built two of these Mars Rovers for the New York Hall of Science. Each one includes a 6-wheel rocker bogie suspension system, servo steering, solar panels, ultrasonic sensors, infrared imaging video camera, and autonomous command execution.

Educational Robot

The 6WD “Challenger” Educational Rover was designed with its electronic components visible for educational purposes.

Aluminalis

An autonomous 16-legged walking creature with a mind of her own. Her brain is an Arduino Nano. Her eyes are sonar sensors. She likes to crawl out from under the workshop cabinets, but she’s shy, so when someones comes, she scurries away from them.

Lunokhod Russian Lunar Rover

We constructed this 1969-era Russian Lunar Rover for a space museum in Prague.

Creepy Crawler

Our first, but not last, venture into biologically inspired robotics.

Alumini

Alumini

Our autonomous 12-legged little beastie

Kuala Lumpur Mini Mars Rover

Mini Mars Rovers for two science centers in Kuala Lumpur

Mechatron

Mechatronic tank with armor plating, 4WD strafing drive system, and an electric gun on a 360-degree gun turret.

Metalbot

Autonomous mecanum-wheeled rover we machined from a single block of metal.

Telegraph System

We refurbished various pieces of old telegraph equipment from the 1800’s, mounted them into boxes, and rewired them with Arduinos and Xbee radios to create an old-looking, but high-tech long-range wireless telegraph system.

Actobot

Actobotics asked us to create a robot of our own design using parts from their new product line. We came up with this cool multipurpose rover platform.

CNC Mill

We use this CNC Mill to machine our custom aluminum parts.

Trekker

Our all-terrain rover with 6 wheel independent suspension, GPS-based waypoint navigation, and ultrasonic object avoidance.

Terrabot

Our gnarly all-terrain self-navigating rock crawler.

Tinybot

On this agile little robot, we packed an Arduino, Xbee radio, motor controller, 2 gear motors, and a LIPO battery beneath the CNC-machined aluminum top.

Flying Drone Robot

Equipped with automatic take off and landing, GPS navigation, sonar for terrain following, a GoPro for HD video recording, and video goggles for FPV flying.

Flyer I

Our first flying robot drone, with insect-like curved legs and a mini FPV camera.

Black Dragon

Our carbon fiber Arduino-based drone with automatic take off and landing, GPS navigation, and ultrasonic terrain following.

Black Hornet

Our tiny carbon fiber flying drone robot.

Spirit II Mars Rover

An early prototype of our Mars Rover, including solar panels, a counter-rotating universal joint, and a 6-wheel rocker bogie suspension system.

Mini Mars Rover

We built three Mini Mars Rovers for a hands-on museum exhibit in Europe.

I.C. 123

We made this little sonar-equipped roaming robot out of spare hardware bits we found around the shop.

KitBot

We designed this kit as an example of a relatively low-budget project that parents could do with their kids.

Telegance

MacMini-based telepresence robot that provides Internet-controllable mobile wifi video conferencing.

I.C. 12 Droid

Our first robot. Inspired by a Star Wars droid.

Security V

This was one of our early security robots with an automatic Airsoft pellet gun.
