The UEX Plus is now a public document on the cloud CAD platform OnShape, if you want to access and edit the build, just head over there, sign up and search for “Ultrascope Explorer Plus”.
Cubesat Simple & Affordable Space Access
Enabled by 3D Printing
3D Printable Portable Slit Lamp
Refreshable Braille Display
Only about 10% of blind people around the world can read Braille. One primary reason is the high cost of Braille displays. The cost is a result of their complexity and reliability – required to ensure that they are able to handle wear and tear.
Sneel Biomimetic Robotic Kinetic Sculptures
Sneel is a series of biomimetic robotic kinetic sculptures that resemble snakes, constructed to explore lifelike, sinuous motion in an aquatic robot. They are designed to navigate unknown territory and extreme terrain. Through the Sneel series, Levine explored new methods of fabrication using custom 3D printed joints, developed an easily replicable assembly process, and ventured into new methods of sinuous actuation.
Sneel is a biomimetic, locomotive robot. The electromechanical design of Sneel mimics the structure and motion of a real water snake, as a test to explore swimming behavior in an undulating linear robot. The inspiration for Sneel originates from a fascination with reptilian forms of motility and the implications of modelling hardware from biological structures and functions. Sneel uses a custom-written software library to propagate an oscillating wave down a line of servo motors that comprise the robot’s body. The current model is a platform for the development of other low-cost snake drones, with semi-autonomous navigational control for waypoint following, and sensing capabilities for obstacle avoidance.
EzRobot Software & Hardware for Robotics
EZ-Robot may seem like a fun toy for building robots. That is because we have spent countless hours designing the perfect robot controller that is so fun to use, people do not realize they are learning. EZ-Robot provides a platform that scales between beginner and advanced users. Users are taught logic, soldering, electronics and modular design all while modifying a toy shell into a Personal Robot. The excitement of having a personalized robot makes the process rewarding!

Falla Modular & Scalable 3D Printer
Alan affordable modular animatronic robot kit
Meet ALAN, the first affordable modular animatronic robot kit. Once assembled, ALAN becomes a unique platform to interact with and learn robotics. Experience emerging technologies such as ChatBots and AI on a personal level.
Designed by Hollywood make-up effects artist Will Huff, ALAN is a 1:1 human scale robot head and shoulders measuring 16 inches tall and provides 5 axes of motion. You assemble the parts, paint, and add your own third party hardware and software. The kit is designed to use off the shelf components like radio controlled servos and micro-controllers . The magnetic and modular components will allow for future upgrades, including changes in appearance such as gender, or new movements like forehead motion, without the expense in purchasing a new head.
First V1Sion Wearable Broadcast System
Wearable broadcast system that immerses fans into the game through the athletes’ point of view. Changing the way you watch sports through wearable technology.
Refugee Open Ware
An investigation into how digitally fabricated prosthetics can transform the lives of those affected by the ongoing Syrian civl war through both function, accessibility and aesthetically. Customised design solutions will allow the device to act as a tool that can help mediate between the user and their unique built environment, in particular the sensitive social and cultural context. Additionally, integrated technologies and smart materials will help alleviate the loss of sense of touch while also contributing to self-esteem and relationships affected by the disability.
Mykonos Mushroom Grower
MYKONOS is a new type of home device that converts mushroom cultivation accessible to all. Usually grow mushrooms at home is generally a complex procedure. MYKONOS makes this process much easier, by combining various steps and tools in a single device.
In about five weeks MYKONOS far this summer ( incubation ) to the first cold nights of the year ( primordia formation ) and finally through the fall ( fruiting ) , when the mushrooms start to appear.
eWASTE 3D printer 2.0
Low cost 3D printer, small in size, from recycled parts of old DVD players, ideal for learning and teaching the process of 3D printing, autonomous printing via Internet or WIFI.
You can define a Drone as ” an aircraft with the ability to fly, semi or fully autonomous, thanks to a computer and sensors on board.
Drones have been associated largely with military use. However, each day more affordable, they are ideal for a wide range of applied research. They are now common tool for building techniques , photogrammetry, transport, agriculture, safety, rescue, environmental research and many other applications . In different circumstances , the only way to see what happened on the ground are satellite images and remote sensing analysis , but conventional platforms for the acquisition of these data, such as pilotless aircraft and satellites are expensive. The use of aerial robots can be beneficial to complete tasks with time requirements or precise position they are complex, or they have to be carried out in harsh environments.
