Panther’s heartbeat consists of NVDIA Jetson TX, ZED stereolabs camera and µNav motor control board.

Update: @Raffaello86 travelled around with Panther. Raffaello and his Powerful Autonomous eNTity High-End Robot were present at MakerFaire Tokyo in August and there was a poster presentation of PANTHER closer to our home. In September the GPU Technology Conference was held (GTCEU16) in Amsterdam. Close to Raffaelo’s home he presented Panther at MakerFaire Rome where he met met Grant Imahar (Mythbusters).

blog post from May 6, 2016:
We received great pictures through Twitter (@makerbeam) about a really nice robotics project from @Raffaello86.

On our bargain rack – buy four packs with 25% discount

We still have some old beams and these are now on sale for a bargain price. Already at 50% discount now there is an added 25% volume discount when you buy four while stock lasts.

Here is a link to our webshop SALE-page.

01bakitreg 4 - closeup bolt nut and black anodised makerbeamThese old beams are not hollow core and are not threaded. Otherwise these beams are the same: measurements (10x10mm) and anodised in both black and clear.

This volume discount also applies to screws with a serrated head. In our quest for the perfect screw for MakerBeam we also made screws with a head that has a serrated bottom. We ultimately chose to go with the square headed screws we still sell nowadays. Here is a link to an old blog post: MakerBeam’s test of the bolts

Serrated bottom, M3, 6mm

And last but not least we also have 900mm MakerBeam lengths in clear for sale. The thread tapping of this batch of 900mm beams was done in such a way that we cannot guarantee good quality. Therefore we offer these 900mm lengths at a discount.

Computerstand

Computerstand OpenBeam 1

We share an office space with our colleagues from Wandy. One of them has two laptops but when in the office he wants to enjoy big screens. He wanted to place these screens higher than the added normal stands could provide. To optimise his workstation he turned to OpenBeam and created one computerstand to hold the two flatscreens. Here are some pictures.

Deskbreeze on Kickstarter

Deskbreeze is a lightweight and simple wind tunnel for teaching aerodynamics to children and adults.

Last summer, Gerhard’s daughter attended a sailing course for children. She was six years old and would enter school the following autumn. She could not read and write and therefore had trouble understanding the written course materials and the graphics. So Gerhard thought about a vivid method to explain to her the basics of aerodynamics for sailing.

Gerhard built a wind tunnel of cardboard and straws, attached to a little fog machine. It worked well, but wasn’t perfect. Through several iterations he developed a stable and simple wind tunnel, into which you can put different objects. With a simple turntable and wires you can change courses and the position of sails, for example.

Deskbreeze uses fans and honeycomb cores to create a laminar flow, and dry ice for the visualization of the airflows.

Liebherr crane in Fischer Technik and OpenBeam

A great project: a Liebherr crane made of Fischer Technik with OpenBeam used as reinforcement.

Liebherr-FT-1 042Peter Damen makes great items with Fischer Technik. Since he has known OpenBeam he uses OpenBeam to reinforce his projects. With this Liebherr crane he did the same. You can see where he used OpenBeam in these pictures below.
Clear OpenBeam for the longer lengths in the crane itself and pieces of black OpenBeam in the base.

You can read more about it and see more pictures on the fischer technik community website. Here is a link to Peter his project listed there.

VJ-ing with OpenBeam

Joel sent us pictures of his OpenBeam project to make VJ-ing more relaxed. He built a structure that raised his equipment to an easy height.

12768403_10153912132700688_2042164832864463024_oHi MakerBeam team 🙂

I’d like to share with you some pictures of my project with OpenBeam.

It’s a structure to support my macbook pro, below a external hard disk and in front my midi controller

Very Very useful when I’m doing VJ’ing in a party to protect the material from spilling drinks and backache 😉

Cheers

Joel

Raspberry Pi Security System with Motion Detection / Camera

A security system that detects the mobile phones of the home occupants in order to avoid switching it on and off. This home made project uses Raspberry Pi, motion detection and naturally MakerBeam.

20160607 Security System_cr

One of the main goals was to have the system completely automatic. No turning it on or off when leaving or arriving home. The easiest way to achieve this was to try and detect the mobile phones of the home occupants. Conceptually this was quite simple but in practice it was the most challenging part.

You can read the complete Bill of Materials in the full article. Continue reading on hackster.io about this project with raspberry pi.
