Makers, developers and hobbyists searching for customisable actuators may be interested in a new piece of hardware which has been created by Diego Porqueras, specifically with makers in mind.
The new customisable actuator has been aptly named the Maker Muscle and has taken to Kickstarter this month to raise the $25,000 required to take the actuator into production. Pledges start from $22 with shipping expected to take place during July 2017.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Maker Muscle customisable actuator.
I designed the Maker Muscle to be a fully customizable actuator solution so you don’t have to adjust your project to fit the actuator, you can now get the right actuator to fit your project…without breaking the bank! What can you do with an Actuator? Robots, robots, robots! They are everywhere! Anything you need help moving, an actuator can probably come to the rescue. Here’s just a few examples of where the Maker Muscle can be used.
Create the perfect speed and power by combining the right motor with the right drive screw for your needs. Use the motor you like to work with, like a geared DC motor, or my favorite, the stepper motor. Make it extend to any length you want by just modifying a few parts. Need it to be 1inch?…or maybe 3 feet? Maker Muscle reaches out. Add mounting anywhere you like with it’s T-Slot system on all 4 sides. You can even mount the electronics on the body.
