Interesting Omni Wheels Info.


There are a lot of cheap omni wheels on the market now but basically they all have plastic rollers which prevent them from working well. Recently we had molds made for a new version of a common omni wheel so that we could fit it with natural rubber rollers. The result is a cheap alternative to mecanum wheels that has surprisingly good traction.

A video of "Scamper" in action here:

We also have some new metal geared motors with a shaft extending out the back so our encoder kit can be fitted to the motors. The robot uses our Mini Driver as a low cost "smart" motor driver that monititors the encoder to control the motor speed.

Ah you get those emails too then? I've been getting the same email over and over for a few weeks now.

I'm tempted to get some to play with.


Yep, the email.... Not sure how they got my email through....


I got the same email. I've ordered a dagu controller before so probably from that.
