If you are looking for a robot arm to help with small-scale assembly you may be interested in a new six axis robot arm called the Mirobot. The miniature industrial robot arm has been designed to provide an affordable and open source desktop robotic system that can be used for coding, creative work and small-scale assembly. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the robot arm which is available from $335 or roughly £276 for early bird backers.
If the Kickstarter campaign is successful and manufacturing progresses smoothly the robotic arm will start shipping out to backers sometime during December 2019. “When thinking about industrial robots, what comes to mind is their size, high price and complexity. Although many people are passionate about industrial robot such as KUKA or ABB, until now, it has been unrealistic to own a quality industrial robot at home. Today that changes with Mirobot, the smallest 6-axis industrial robot arm for home, school and professional use. “
“Inspired by the ABB IRB 6700 industrial robot arm which is utilized in advanced factories around the world, we created the Mirobot robot arm – a small, affordable, and user-friendly industrial robotic arm that is accessible to everyone. Whether you are a robot expert, creative enthusiast or beginner, you can get started in the exciting world of robotics with Mirobot.”
When combined with OpenMV and machine vision code, Mirobot can see and think, enabling it to recognise different shapes, engaging optical flow as well as a variety of other advanced vision tasks. “Utilizing our user-friendly software, Mirobot can be programmed to create beautiful handwriting and written notes. Programming writing tasks is as easy as writing on a screen.”
