This weekend I was at Bilbao Maker Faire showing Thor. The event was great and I met a lot of interesting people.

I met Antonio, the creator of DIMER, who was located next to me at the faire, so we managed to interact our robotic arms with each other... And here is the result! (Maybe the first marriage proposal between robotic arms?)

As you can see in the video, Thor is moving faster than weeks ago. I increased the speed of the slowest articulations about 50%. Soon i'll test the maximum speeds that Thor can support.

Another great new is that I have been using Thor for 8h non-stop working and it didn't broke or melt neither! Yay!

Next things I'll be working on: Test the maximum speeds, making a conveyor belt that will interact with Thor, design a new electronic board and add a new degree of freedom (hehe >:D).

Finally, I just saw the awesome work of Danny... Just go to his project page and see it with your own eyes...

Best regards!

One of the cool thing you could do is add a mechanism to extend or shorten the arm. 

  Are you sure? yes | no
