We believe that servo motors needed more material around them so that regular sized hardware, screws, and fasteners can be used to effortlessly make stuff that moves. With Servo Socks, you can cut, drill, carve, shape, sand, and screw into them because they are just like wood.
Oh, and no screws to install the servo so it only takes a few seconds to put a servo into a sock.
How do Servos Work?
Play with the 2 sliders below to see the difference between position-able and continuous rotation servos!
We believe the best kit is no kit at all.
So much can be accomplished and learned while using the stuff you can find or the material you like to use from…
- Your local hardware store/building centre
- A scrap bin in any wood/fabrication shop
- The jars and drawers full of random bits and “junk” around your house
- Your recycling bin
- Repurposed broken things
We consider Servo Socks the “Anti-kit” because we are providing a great way to build movement into projects without having to commit to a kit.
All that we provide is an incredibly universal connection between whatever you are making with common, replaceable hobby servo motors.
There are so many ways to run/drive the servo motors you build into your projects because running them is also universal.
Servo motors can be controlled using…
- Radio Control “RC”
- Raspberry Pi
- Servo control boards
- …just to name a few!
This wide array of control options solidified that choosing common servo motors prevents locking you into any specific architecture or control.
