After seeing Alonso Martinez’s Mira robot on You-Tube, I had to have one but couldn’t find it anywhere. So, I designed my own version of it and will be uploading STLs and make the software that I’ve written for it available either here or github.
In a nutshell, it is two concentric shells with 3 servos to control x, y and z axis. It runs on a raspberry pi zero w, a pi camera and a PWM board from Adafruit. Internal parts are held in place without screws; just 3D printed blocks and 1/4″, strong magnets.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
