Can You Robot?
Robots are the next big platform. We've all dreamed of a world where robots interact with and help humans in their daily lives. But the reality is, robots have a long way to go. Limited access, due to robots being either too expensive and complex or too simplistic, has kept innovators, explorers and the masses at bay.
Enter HEXA, the first of a new generation of accessible, programmable robots from Vincross. HEXA is a 6-legged, highly maneuverable, compact robot that comes complete with all the necessary sensors. Along with HEXA, we deliver MIND, a robotics OS and SDK, where for the first time, individuals don't need to know underlying hardware and complex mechanics to learn and create interesting robotics functionality.
All makers and developers in the era of internet needed a thinkpad, and in this new era of IoT and home robotics, you need a CrazyPi! Designed for ROS and by DIY robot makers, CrazyPi is a powerful Robot maker board with an abundance of features. With its P2M cloud services, you can connect and control CrazyPi without using a monitor, even from another country.
Compare with the the traditional maker board robot, you can easily assemble your CrazyPi robot, without the need of installing drivers. CrazyPi also comes with Ubuntu, ROS and robotic applications pre-installed, so you can start playing with it as soon as possible! Because of the visual IoT of P2M service, CrazyPi is a superior maker board than other maker boards currently on the market.
Algobrix teaches kids how to code by guiding them through the steps of programming a robot's movements. But instead of scripts to write, they have blocks to arrange, in a tangible way that's true to real coding.
It's the awesomeness of robots, the lasting fun of building blocks, and the problem solving of 3D puzzles. It's Algobrix.
Badminton is cool: Everyone loves badminton - Accessible, popular, simple, and blazing fun! It's a sport made of great values: performance, respect, happiness... That's why people love Badminton, that's why it becomes increasingly popular!
The problem: Badminton machines exist on the market, but are not accessible to every one: too expensive (2.500€ minimum retail price), not portable (it's indoor or nothing...), with proprietary technologies (costly to maintain, restricted roadmap evolution). People who like fun and sports would enjoy such a machine, small clubs would use it for training, but they just can't - Now's the time to do something

Practice makes perfect.
Watching my daughter's team practice, I quickly realized that the girls who had siblings who also played volleyball to practice with, improved at a MUCH higher rate than the other members of the team. The ability to hit hundreds of balls a day, to practice passing and setting with another player for hours outside of regularly scheduled team practice, was a huge advantage. I immediately went looking for a practice machine - they have them for baseball, tennis, and other sports; there must be one for volleyball! And there were.
The machines I found were expensive. They were very limited in their capabilities. And the ones that offered more capability were even MORE expensive! There wasn't a high quality, versatile volleyball practice machine at a reasonable price on the market. So I decided to make one!
Before getting to this point and launching this campaign, months were spent building various prototypes using different mechanisms to launch the balls. Getting it right meant not only getting the power to achieve the correct height and distance ranges, but duplicating the "feel" - the speed, spin, and lay, of a hand-set or hand-passed volleyball in play. The pneumatic arm-and-hammer design I landed on works far better in this capacity than electric motors or actuators, air cannons, spinning wheels, or direct impingement pneumatic rams.
I wanted to add features while keeping the cost low. Adding Bluetooth music was a no-brainer! The ability to fire the ball on-panel or by wireless remote. Height and angle adjustment at the touch of a button - and also by remote! A reliable ball feeding mechanism that wouldn't bind or jam. Battery operation with long life for hours of practice (and music!) without difficulty. And it has to be light enough for a 12 year old girl to move around safely and easily - even over sand.
And that's what I've built. I hope you like it!
