This is an amazing new video showing a new generation of the Atlas robot, which is capable of walking in snow without falling over as well as coping with being pushed around by humans.
Need to connect up to 8 ultrasonic sensors to an Arduino or other 5V microcontroller? Now you can with the Octasonic HC-SR04 breakout board. This board uses SPI communication so only uses one dedicated pin on the microcontroller. Here’s a video of an electronic piano project using 8 ultrasonic sensors. This would work great in robots for obstacle avoidance too!
If you have access to a 3D printer, you can build your very own “life size” BB-8 robot using this detailed guide from Ed’s Junk. 3D design files are available to download too. This is one of the best DIY robotics projects we’ve seen in a while. Nice work, Ed!
