Make Your Own Tentacle


A while back Adafruit contacted us about publishing some of our research on their Learning System. We developed a simple straightforward tutorial on how to make your very own Trefoil Tentacle.

You can follow along with the tutorial, check out the illustrated abbreviated version, or go straight to downloading all the supporting files on Thingiverse.

We're seriously committed to keeping these robots as open as possible. Even if it takes longer to document and publish things in a way that all audiences can grasp, we think the benefit to the technology itself that comes from everyone having access to the tech at once - all pushing the envelope at once - is totally worth the extra effort writing up tutorials and uploading photos to Flickr.
