 − at 17:23, 24. Jun. 2015


3d Printed Shells are up at Shapeways!

The HR-OS1 Orion Armor Set is in beta but available for download, printing and customization at the Interbotix Labs Shapeways Store. *please note 3D printed shells are still in beta phase as maximum payloads have not yet been established.


GitHub Repository Active!

Check out our Github Repository for the latest software, 3D shell files, Arbotix Pro firmware and design files and the HR-OS1 Framework! The framework is completely open source so you can tweak current behaviors and build your own custom software on the HR-OS1.


Beta Pre-Order Round Two, Units Still Available!

Make sure to reserve your HR-OS1 before they’re gone again! We started with only 50, and they’re running out quickly!

phantomx cooling fans

User QuadFu/r3n33 created brackets and grills, fitting 30mm fans to the femur AX-18 Servos on their PhantomX Hexapod. Femur servos do tend to run hotter than the rest and this improvement can increase run time and servo longevity. They also look pretty sweet, and the Hexapod is very flashy. Definitely worth a look.
