Beatty Robotics Builds NYSCI’s Next Generation Rover

The Mars Rover is constructed of over 500 electrical components and aluminum parts that we purchase, make by hand, and/or machine on our homemade CNC Mill. In addition to the NASA-style six-wheeled rocker-bogie suspension system and the solar panels, the new Mars Rover is equipped with an infrared camera, a thermal array sensor, eight sonar sensors, and other technology. Using special control software that we will provide, kids and other visitors to the center will drive the Mars Rover remotely through the exhibit’s Mars-scape on a mission to find infrared-emitting rocks that may provide evidence of past life on Mars.

A three-minute lookback at just a few of this year’s World Maker Faire highlights. See more in our photo pool here.

Catching up with Robot GRRL at Maker Faire NYC, 2011

We all live in a Yellow Drum Machine

LetsMakeRobots will demonstrate the Yellow Drum Machine (YDM), as well as other robots by their members. The YDM is a funky little drumbot. It roams around and makes beats, and samples. They’ll also have some fun projects for you to try yourself!

Make your own Simple Bots in no time

Simple Bots is the awesome new eBook that teaches you how to make a bunch of fun and easy bots in no time. This book is written with the beginner in mind and no prior knowledge of robotics is necessary.

Look for Simple Bots at World Maker Faire, NYC.

It’s a roboBrrd, it’s a mini dog-cow, and yes, it’s RobotGrrl!

What does a hockey playing humanoid with bad knee servos, a robot with a beak that eats virtual fruit, and a mini dog-cow on wheels have in common? The robot mesh network! RobotGrrl makes it all happen and she is inviting you along for the experience, this weekend at World Maker Faire, NYC.
