MKME Community Making A Difference

Here in the MKME community we like to make a difference for people. Eric received notice that one of the  Kiva loans was repaid so the funds have been flipped back in for a farmer in Mexico this time. He’s using it for a bio gas recovery system to pasteurize his milk instead of propane fuel. We will continue to make a difference in the world whenever we can no matter how small.

3D Printed Prosthesis Outperforms Commercial Unit

I ran across this video this week and had to share. This is exactly why I started the DIY robot arm with brain interface project. Mine is not suited for this application but the concept is the same. As makers and creators I think we have a unique perspective on certain things. With the advent of affordable and semi-reliable 3D printers- we now have the tools to quickly fabricate components in a matter of minutes- not weeks. This is just…

Work on the InMoov Robot Arm ?>

Work on the InMoov Robot Arm

Did some work on the InMoov 3D printed robotic arm recently.  I had been meaning to get around to fixing a servo issue I have had since I initially assembled the arm.  Basically for my setup- I need to ensure all servos stop before their limits to avoid buring them out.
