Looks like the new gripper Ken teased us with a video is now available in the Parallax store:

Looks like a quality US built must have for a BoeBot or other robot.

  • Awesome, looks really good. I was waiting on this before placing my next order. Unfortunately I only own the sumo bots at the moment, so I may need to look into a bigger platform as well...
  • Hey everybody. Let me be honest: this is a must-have! It's a loss leader, too! It's worth every bit of the $100, especially if you've monkeyed around with two-servo stuff from Amazon and eBay, dumping current as heat into a servo.

    Money well-spent in my view and it comes with our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Designed by a PhD mechanical engineer who was raised on the Boe-Bot. We met in NYC last summer at the request of a common professor and put this idea together. From his point, it's a "give back" to the company and community that inspired him to become who he is today.

    Manufactured in Rocklin, CA on our CNC machines.

    Hey Ken,

    Sorry to steal your thunder in the Announcment section. I like to get the word out as soon as it comes to my inbox. I know you guys are busy with your awesome education projects.

  • I love that it's aluminum parts, and it looks fantastic too!
    Honestly, I was expecting to have to pay more, and would have.

    Seconded! $99 intro price is a smokin' hot deal for anything CNC'ed, and this thing is freakin' gorgeous. WANT!

    It does look pretty cool. Maybe I shouldn’t get rid of all my Parallax robots just yet!
