Cool Project: Liquid Handling Robot

Mike Barnkob posted a really nice project on the ROBOTC forums;  a liquid handling robot.  I am sure you’ve seen them on most CSI shows; not like this one, however.  As you can see from the picture, it’s a fairly large contraption.  For additional coolness, he made use of the Firgelli Linear Actuators. The motors are controlled by using two NXTs that communicate through BlueTooth.

Mike’s written a rather nice project journal of sorts where he kept track of his project’s progress.  You can read it here: [LINK].  There are plenty of videos and source code snippets to illustrate how it was all put together.

A job well done, I’d say!
