Project K.R.A.B. - A touch control powered claw monstrosity

I decided to build something with the claw on my own time and take a gander into using the touchscreen for controls, the result of that was Project K.R.A.B.
It features

  • A Motor393 for vibration
  • A Claw

thats it.

So are you making a claw that has touchscreen controls?

yes. preciesly. tap green button, claw opens, tap red, it closes.
I just wanted to find another way to control thing other than bumpers/limits

Cna you make an exo arm that uses touchscreen controls?

i wanted to but decided against it.
I just wanted a proof of concept but yep, it’s possible, here’s the code that powers the claw
k.r.a.b.blocks.v5blocks (8.5 KB)
cant upload c++ file due to restrictions

That seems pretty cool, but what does K.R.A.B stand for?

I’ve done assorted clawbot (All hail the Clawbot!) challenge contests across the years. You’ve given me an idea for the 2022 challenge.

Nice arm, maybe you could do something like that on your robot.

you already know
the difference between the 2 is that one of them (the 1st built) uses a 393 motor but since we ran out at tech ed, the 2nd uses a 269
