ROBOTS!!! A 3D printing company called Zortrax based out of Poland, recently released the STL files to print your own robotic arm! We've decided to take a stab at printing and programming one of these little guys. Instead of climbing the mountain solo, we put a project call out, through Make Something Edmonton for any volunteers with programming knowledge and a love of hacking it out to give us a hand. With the help of some publicity thanks to a great article about this project written by Ramin Ostad from the Edmonton Examiner, we have started to put together a team to take a run at this! Stay tuned for more up-to-date posts on as we work through this project over the next couple of months.
