While our Universal Mounting Hubs are mainly intended as general-purpose adapters for motor shafts, it seems that they can also be used to help build a cable-actuated animatronic tentacle. Joshua Vasquez posted an article on Hackaday about his two-stage tentacle mechanism with “vertebrae” made from Universal Mounting Hubs and laser-cut Delrin pieces. (We didn’t do the laser cutting for this project, but our custom laser cutting service might be i...

When capturing photographs of wildlife, it is not always feasible to be close enough to trigger your camera with a standard wired remote. In these cases, using an RC transmitter and receiver pair would be ideal, but most cameras and their remotes do not accept hobby RC signals. This blog post, written by CamDo, explains how to use one of our RC switches with a built-in relay and their Bullet wired remote interface to trigger a GoPro camera from...

We are now selling T1-3/4 (5mm) common anode RGB LEDs! These multi-color LEDs contain red, green, and blue (RGB) elements that can be mixed to produce different colors. The three color elements share a common anode and are encased in a diffused white lens that blends the colors and widens the viewing angle. This product is a pack of five (5) RGB LEDs.

Using an Arduino shield or Raspberry Pi add-on board is often a quick and convenient way to get started on a robotics project, but for maximum flexibility, nothing beats building your own system from standalone boards. Rud Merriam’s Hackaday article describes the design of his Raspberry Pi-controlled robot, for which he opted to use separate modules instead of daughterboards on the Pi, and mentions some of the trade-offs involved in making that d...

We are now carrying the FEETECH FS90 micro servo. At a weight of only 9 g and less than inch long, this servo is great for actuating tiny mechanisms. We also carry the continuous-rotation version of this servo, the FEETECH FS90R.

I am excited to announce the release of the Romi chassis, our new platform for mobile robotics. Romi is a 6.5″-diameter round chassis that includes all the basic mechanical parts that you need for a mobile robot: a base plate with integrated battery holder, motors and motor brackets, wheels with silicone tires, and a ball caster as a third point of contact.

We now have a magnetic encoder pair kit available for our mini plastic gearmotors with extended back shafts. Like our encoder kit for micro metal gearmotors, these kits consist of Hall effect sensor boards that mount to the back of the motors and magnetic discs that fit on the motors’ back shafts. The encoders provide a resolution of 12 counts per revolution of the motor shaft (when counting both edges of both channels); in terms of counts per ge...

We’ve just released our VL53L0X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor Carrier. With its ability to measure distances up to 2 m depending on configuration, target, and environment, the VL53L0X is a longer-range version of the VL6180X (but without ambient light sensing functionality) that operates using the same principles. This integrated lidar module times how long it takes for pulses of infrared light to reach a target, reflect off it, and arrive back ...

Great product selection and fast service. I ordered online Monday night, the package was shipped Tuesday morning, and I received it Wednesday afternoon. This company will definitely be my go-to for wires and connectors from now on.

My first and only review of any company ever...because of the absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced - ever....and from a total of 4 total people including the owner - I've never been treated so poorly by a company as I was by Pololu.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
This reviewer came to us with demands and an attitude we thought were unreasonable but which he thought were justified by his high-volume project. He seemed most offended by our turning down his potential business because of considerations beyond just the size of his future orders.

I have not visited, but I did place an order for several small items that are very expensive at the local hardware stores (nylon spacers) and a acrylic robot base. I have to say I had no issues with the ordering process, delivery or items received. I was puzzled by the constant reference to the fact that my order might be delayed due to international postal problems...I live in Kansas USA and they are in Vegas USA. Never mind, all the items I ordered were fine and they arrived quickly. No problems and I will be ordering again from them soon.

Be sure to check out their Return Policy before ordering anything. They do not accept returns for Customer Dissatisfaction. If you open the package to check out your merchandise, you cannot return it for any reason (even if it's unused, unassembled, or undamaged). Makes you wonder why anyone would place an order, receive it, not open it, and send it back for a refund and substantial restocking fee. Gives a new perspective on 'Customer Service' for me. Also makes you wonder why their statement of "Due to the nature of our Business" precludes them from providing the same level of Customer Service on Returns, as the hundreds of other on-line vendors will do.
