Dobot is Arduino-powered, 4-axis parallel-mechanism desktop robotic arm.


When behaving repeated actions, a blunder in pointing is as tiny as 0.2mm, lenient we to do ethereal work though losing a precision.


There are designed mixed ways for control, including PC, mobile app, EEG, voice, prophesy and gesture.

Tech Specs



The Dobot will be open sourced after a Kickstarter campaign. It supports 3 OpenSource Firmware for special applications and developers with opposite programming preferences:

  1. Complete grown by Dobot group Easy for developers informed with Industrial robots .
  2. Base on grbl (easy for developers informed with open source CNC machine).
  3. Base on Marlin (Easy for developers informed with RepRap compatiable 3D printer).

The plan is entirely corroborated on Kickstarter and reached a appropriation idea of $36.000, a early bird pricing are gone, though we can still get it for $499, estimated smoothness on Dec of 2015.
