Phil Williammee has created an application that can communicate with the the PhantomX Pincher through PyPose. pyPincher will allow you to control the Pincher via rotation, extension, and height, along with gripper angle and the gripper itself. The program will then also give you a 3D representation of the arm’s current position. You can even load different coordinates and toggle between them! This is just another great example of how users can leverage the open software and firmware of the InterbotiX robots to create custom setups.

You can grab a copy of the code at his GitHub page

PhantomX Reactor ArmThe Arms are done!

We’re proud to unveil our new arms, the PhantomX Reactor Robot Arm and its little brother the PhantomX Pincher Robot Arm. These arms are based around the Dynamixel AX-12 Robot Servos and are controlled with the Arbotix RoboController, so you have an amazing amount of control over these arms. The Reactor Arm also has a ‘Wrist Rotate’ option, to add another level of functionality to your arm.

Stay tuned for more videos about the design of this arm, as well as examples of all of the amazing things it can do.
