Aluminum Utility Arms – Master (U.S.)  **SOLD OUT**

Aluminum Utility Arms – Master (U.S.) **SOLD OUT**

Aluminum Utility Arms

MASTER:  This is an advanced design of the Diet Utility Arm.

The main cavity of the Utility Arm is completely hollowed out to reduce weight and allow for additional features.

The cavity will be covered with a thin aluminum plate and retained with countersunk screws.

 

These Utility Arms have modified claws with a new side profile to eliminate the interference between the utility arm and the skins.

This modification will not be seen from the front when the utility arms are retracted within the skins.

The cut is carried across the top surface of the claw so that the hard edges of the claw appear the same as previous (untapered) claws.

 

The design is modular – the claw section is separate from the main cavity to permit the claws to rotate in both directions.

There is enough room in the main cavity to install a servo to automate the claw rotation.

In addition, the claw will extend slightly (1.0mm) as it rotates to reduce scratching the painted surfaces of the utility arms.

The rotary joint is spring loaded to allow the claw to be manually rotated if no servo is used.

***This kit does NOT include the Servo or Servo drive hardware***

There will be a path to allow for routing servo wires into the main cavity of the arms.

Included in the Deluxe Kit:

  • Aluminum Utility Arm Main Housing (2)
  • Main Housing Rear Cover Plate (2)
  • Aluminum Utility Arm Claw (2)
  • Claw Bushing (2)
  • Rotary Wedge (2)
  • Spring + Assembly Screws

Dome Bump Controller – U.S. Shipping

Dome Bump Controller – U.S. Shipping

The Dome Button Controller will allow you to power on/off your droid and control various functions by pressing a programmable sequence on the dome buttons.

For example:  hold both buttons for 2 seconds – then press Left, Left, Right, Right to initiate “Lights and Sound” mode.  The on-board Arduino microcontroller can be programmed to allow for unlimited program sequences.

KID PROOF:  the programmable sequence acts like a “combination lock” preventing kids from activating critical functions, while allowing them to interact with R2.  For example, when a child presses the dome button(s) R2 could make a “beep” (or whatever response you like). However, critical operations like ''power on/off'' or ''drive motor enable'' are restricted to passcode access only.

DON’T LOSE the MAGIC:  When I have to get out my remote control to demonstrate R2 to my friends at home, it makes it feel like an RC toy.  I want R2 to be real.  By standing next to R2 and pressing the “power up” sequence on the dome, I can bring R2 to life without losing the magic.  I can then reach for the remote while the crowd is mesmerized by R2''s lights and sounds.

For more information please check out this thread:
http://astromech.net/forums/showpost.php?p=109390&postcount=1"]http://astromech.net/forums/showpost.php?p=109390&postcount=1

This Kit includes:

Aluminum Dome Bumps (set of 2)

Aluminum Dome Bump Housing:
   The aluminum housing mounts to the inside of the dome and retains the dome bumps and control circuit board.
   NOTE: this kit is compatible with existing dome bumps built to club specs (dome bumps are NOT included).

Rubber Dome Bump Gasket: 
   The rubber gasket holds the dome buttons in place and allows for a nice ''click'' when pressed.

Electronics:
     Printed Circuit Board
     Heavy Duty Tactile Switches 
     Integrated Arduino Microcontroller
     5VDC Voltage Regulator 
     16 Reconfigurable Output Control Lines
     I2C Serial Input for Distributed Control
