Mecanum and Omni Wheeled Robots
Is rotating your robot like an owl not your thing? Do you have a desire to see your robot slide to the left and cha-cha to the right (our robots don’t actually dance)? Then you need Omni-Directional robots.
Omni means “in all ways or places” (per our favorite dictionary) so omni-wheel robots move in any direction and you can get them pre-built or in a kit, ranging in both price and difficulty to build.
For you to have the right components for the job, we also offer Mecanum wheels, which work similarly to omni wheels except Mecanum wheels can be mounted conventionally since the rollers are at 45-degree angles.
Regardless of how you spin your wheels, you can configure your robot kit any way you want with a variety of different motor, frame, and gear combinations. If your head is spinning round and round, we can also build any of these robot kits for you if you select the “assemble” option, and we can design and build a Custom Robot for you too.
