A portable hardware kit for experimenting with pneumatics

View all updates May 17, 2019

Crowdfunding Has Begun

We’re live! You can now get your very own hardware toolkit that’ll let you inflate and deflate objects. Maybe make a vacuum pick and place machine, blow up a balloon and have it’s size represent data, make a soft robot walk, use a syringe as a linear actuator, or whatever you want. It’s time to get started with pneumatics.

Maker Faire Bay Area

By the way, I’ll be at Maker Faire this weekend! If you’ll be attending, please do drop by to say hi and talk air and robots. I’ll be at a zone 2 demo booth Friday through Sunday, and I’m also giving a talk on Sunday at noon - also in zone 2.
