Since I decided to conduct a workshop on Android based Robotics, I started looking for a suitable platform I can use to teach robotics.
I wanted to use IOIO board and had already convinced Ytai Ben-Tsvi (Inventor of IOIO) to co-teach the workshop with me. Not able to find what I was looking for I decided to build one of my own (thanks to Techshop). Here’s a simple IOIObot that we used for the workshop with IOIO, Servo, DC Motor and Breadboard. Checkout the video below to see what one of the student came up with at the end of 2 days workshop.
My 1st Robotics Hackathon!!!
I believe it was the 1st ever Robotics Hackathon. Never heard of Robot Hackathon before!
The Hackathon was organized and lead primarily by the RobotShop to promote the Robot Cloud MyRobots. But in Santa Clara it was hosted by the Robot Launchpad and Citrix Start-up Accelerator. (Thanks Andra and Michael).
It had been really long since I built something. So just to get over the itch, I hacked up this simple project over a few hours this Sunday.
I found this really inexpensive ($12) toy arm at a local shop. Wanting to experiment with it, I hooked up some servos to the device and automated the arm
Here are few Pics and a video
For EAS 546: Engineering Entrepreneurship II, my team decided to prepare a business plan for DEKA Bionic Arm. The team comprised of 5 people each assigned a separate responsibility as the part of the firm.
We decided to name the firm as LoLiT – Lost Limb replacement Technology Inc

Simple, Clean, Green.
As a Final project for the IPD 501: Integrated CAD Manufacturing and Analysis, I and Mohit wanted to make something we can use over the summer. We both love riding Bikes and also we love to take pictures of all the places we have been to while riding. Well, it ain’t easy to do both simultaneously, thus we decided to make this camera mount for bikes. Its stable, has in integrated turn table with flash light and well not bad at all. All designed in Seimen’s NX 5 and manufactured in the 3D printer (Thanks UPENN :)).
A LED Flashlight my first project for MEAM 610 – Advance Mechatronics
I built a Dual color Dual mode Led flashlight with Red and White Lights. The LED flashlight consisted of high beam ultra bright White led and high intensity red led. The Flashlight can be used either in blinking more or as torch light for either colors.
CkBot is a self assembling robot, developed by Professor Mark Yim at University of Pennsylvania. The report aimed at shaping this technology-driven discovery into a customer-driven product, identify the target market for the product & developing a marketing strategy for penetrating the market. It also aims at providing an assessment of the total market potential to develop a dollar sales forecast over time for the product.
This project was developed for EAS 545: Engineering Entrepreneurship Course. View more to see the complete report…
