hi does anyone know if i could kepe 2 wheels, and have my robot giro stabilised like the mip robot
Great Britain
wow thanx... u know a lot
@Andrew... LOL... I have been here for a while... Plus I am a pretty big nerd...:D

do you know when the Inverted Pendulum is gonna come out
@Andrew34.... EZ Robot mentioned early June when it should ship... I have one on pre-order myself...

Thanks for the advice

Hi if i want to write a bit of code in python for my robot,then am i still limited by the ezb s board functions

This may help you out but it has been a while since it has been updated. I haven't used it yet and it is something that was developed by an inactive forum member. It might be worth checking out.

Hi how do i use the 3d scanning option on ARC, or the gps control
Hi Andrew,

These devices look like you can control things from your EEG but they are actually only reading EMG which is muscle tension. So clench your jaws, or wrinkle your forehead and you'll get some consistent responses. DAARPA has been spending billions on this and the closest thing they've developed so far are 4 flashing cursors in each corner of the screen. After about 10 seconds of looking at one cursor, your EEG starts to osculate at a similar frequency as the cursor and a map begins to move in that direction. We're getting close regarding deciphering EEG signals in real time but we're still limited by computer speed. The most hopeful of algorithms I've explored (out of hundreds over the last 20+ years) to date for DSP of nonlinear non stationary signals is the Complete Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition. But it's still computationally extremely expensive for real time work.

Myo is an awesome tool for reading EMG and DJ created an interface for it.

Myo Interface


Last week, Caltech put two implants in the posterior cingulate cortex and have a man controlling a robotic arm with his intentions. Still isn't possible from scalp electrodes but it's a step in the right direction.


That would be so awesome to be able to do. My mom is a stroke victim, so she is wheel chair bound too and cant speak well. Some sort of mechanical assistance would be so helpful for her and my family if it was possible.

there is a guy on YouTube who has made a robot arm to help feed people, if you have an ez robot kit, then why don't u try and make something.

I think he was a student working for ez robot for a month or two....

well atleast i tried *stress* *stress* *stress*

hi my dad is part of the intel realsense team, is there any way that you could use that with the robots
Andrew - you can surely connect any 3rd party software or hardware to an ez-robot. The system was designed with a modular approach to enable 3rd party development. Our Software section is a demonstration of all of the 3rd party components and add-ons.

Additionally, if you have used ARC - there are many 3rd party modules. The effort ez-robot invests into 3rd party module support is due to their consumer availability and usability. For example, we will not be adding "mind reading" device support to any ez-robot product because it doesn't exist.

ez-robot will not supporting snake oil fake "mind reading" products:)

As for your dad's project - our open source libraries are available in the Software section of this website.:)
