The Razor – UVA’s 3D-printed U.A.V. #drone #droneday
University of Virginia shares a fully 3d printed drone:
The Razor is a 3D-printed, hand-launchable, fully autonomous U.A.V. developed by Professor David Sheffler in partnership with the Mitre Corporation. The aircraft was built with freely available off-the-shelf parts, including an Android smartphone that acts as the central processor.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
