Forknife 2, Armed to the Teeth

Surveyor Corp. recently released an open-source Google Android app to operate its Blackfin-based robots. They used several bots to demonstrate its flexibility, including a SRV-1 Blackfin, a YARB Robotic Blimp and the clever Forknife 2 that can cut up your cupcake if it really needs to be segmented.


The basic SRV-1 Kit (pictured here) is available at Trossen while the Console app is free on a Google code page. Check the link to see more details and images.
