New Playful Puppy kit from DAGU

The new Playful Puppy robot kit from DAGU will be available from April 2013! This new version of the robot is smaller and easier to wire up. Magnetic clutches have been included on the pan / tilt assembly. The manual now explains the code in detail to make it easier to understand and modify.

New Micro Magician V2

The new improved Micro Magician V2 is here! It has all the features you loved in the original Micro Magician but with an ATmega328P and improved power supply. The new black and yellow PCB looks great and is easier to read.

You can now download the manual from here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B__O096vyVYqUjNXVV9RMmFuNkk

Doodle Bot - beginners platform

The Doodle Bot is a very simple robotic platform for beginners, students and hobbyist.

The Chassis is a simple laser cut panel with two ball raced geared motors and a servo for raising and lowering a white board marker, jumbo chalk or crayon. Each wheel is fitted with an 8-pole magnet that is monitored by hall effect sensors to form two simple wheel encoders.

The kit includes an Arduino compatible controller with an ATmega8A processor, USB interface (CP2102) and FET, dual "H" bridge. Sample code allows the user to write simple alpha-numeric text messages.

ATMega AVR Pin Sticker

Okay, so I was bored and flipping through Adafruit tonight and I saw that they had stickers like these for $3/10.  Not that I want to take money out of Limor's pocket, but I thought I'd share these with my LMR kin:

Having one of those days where your too lazy to do anything? Have a robot doodle for you while you sit back in your favorite chair. This is a very simple drawing … Read more

Micro Magician robot controller - I can finally tick the project complete box!

I started designing this controller in December 2011. After 4 months and 2 previous revisions it will finally be shipping out April 2012. I think this is DAGU's best Arduino compatible robot controller yet!

Designed for small robots using small batteries, the Micro Magician is a 3.3V controller running at 8MHz.
Working from 4.5V to 9V means this constroller can run from a single LiPo cell or 3x NiMh batteries.
Reverse polarity protection means no blue smoke if you get your power wires crossed (reverse polarity diode rated at 3A).
