Dobot M1, the affordable robot that prints in 3D, burns to laser, solder and more



The robotic arms seem to belong to science fiction films, automobile factories and the dreams of DIY fans. Dobot wants to change that, with a brilliant new Kickstarter campaign that takes the robotics to the most domestic level possible, almost to the desktop of your house. The robot is extensible and can be equipped with some accessories.

The Dobot M1 began its crowfunding campaign at $ 999. But it's too late to get it at this price. The lucky five, who were the first to bet on the Dobot M1, have already taken the first options at that price. Now, the cheapest version costs $ 1,399, but the price will go up again as soon as another 40 units are purchased. So if you want this robot arm do not hesitate to bet on it if you want an "affordable" price.

The robot comes with two tool heads included with the base package. Among the options of a 3D printer head, a 4-axis accessory, a laser engraver, suction cup or a pincer. Additional toolheads can be added for $ 80 each. There are also a number of advanced tools available, including a 3D mouse for $ 200. It also offers a visual kit for 600 dollars (which adds computer vision to the robot), a welding kit (which allows the robot to make welds) or an extension accessory that increases the robot's reach.

For the incredible price of $ 6,099, you can buy a complete mobility platform that makes this little robot the last shout of the semi-professional robots. We leave you some videos where you can see how the Dobot M1 works.

THE DOBOT M1 IS EXTENSIBLE AND PROGRAMMABLE

The robot can be programmed in several ways. You can put it into learning mode and you can grab its head and describe a movement - the robot will record the movements and repeat them over and over until it gets bored. That, given that it is a robot, can take a while. It also comes with a number of programming tools, APIs and SDKs, which means that if you know how to program it will probably not be difficult for you to make the robot do what you want.

No one is going to say that robots are not impressive, but since this is a Kickstarter campaign, the company still faces quite a few obstacles before it is ready to ship. The Dobot M1 is not the first robotic arm that comes out on the Kickstarter platform. For example, FLX.ARM raised $ 83,000 and was scheduled to ship in January 2015. However, it was not able to send the articles to its "sponsors" until July or August of this year. Another case is that of Makerarm. In his case he raised $ 440,000 earlier this year and his shipments were scheduled to be made in October of this year. Like the previous one also has run into a series of delays.



The Dobot company is not new to this and has already made several such articles. Mainly it has always been directed to educational use. An example is the Dobot Magician for 1200 dollars. Another is the Dobot Arm v1.0 for $ 999. The Dobot M1 is the first robot of the company directed to the light manufacture.
