MechaCrab Part 1: First Prototype

The robot so aptly named MechaCrab. This is my first attempt at a 2 DOF/appendage soft robotic quadruped. I’ve been mulling this idea over for a while as it came out of my initial designs of TAMI (I will get back to that project at some point…). The idea is to use 2 DOF soft […]

By utilizing one of the simplest physical characteristics of an object – charge storage, one is able to measure the presence of a grounded object including touch and pressure. There are a couple of capacitive touch libraries that I’ve seen around but many require dedicated hardware, for example the TSC peripheral […]
