A new 6 axis robotic arm has been created by the development team at Niryo based in Lille, France, which is both open source and can be powered by Arduino, Raspberry Pi and ROS. With 6 axis, you can draw on a vertical board, or any non horizontal surface.

“Our goal is to make robotics accessible for everyone. For us, accessible means two things : low cost and user friendly.We have the dream that everyone can learn robotics and have a better life with a desktop robotic arm. Niryo One is an accessible 6 axis robotic arm, made for makers, education, and small companies. The robot is 3D printed and powered by Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Robot Operating System. STL files and code on the robot will be open source after the first shipments. More than a product, we are building a complete set of cloud services around Niryo One, and a community around open source projects.”

You can control Niryo One with many interfaces and tools:

  • Joystick (xbox or playstation controller)
  • G-code
  • Web and Mobile application

Everyone can find its way, from a child to an advanced developer.

By being open source, they also let you, and the community, develop more use cases and functionalities! They want work on this project, hand in hand with the community to make a product which is evolving with people needs.
