We are excited to start capturing the labeled training data with the aide of the new open muscle lask device which is a modified physical therapy tool aimed at strengthening the fingers and dexterity of the hand. We did a livestream working with the device here: You can also view the whole stream video on… Read More »Open Muscle Lask System
Working on the documentation for open muscle there were a few definitions or naming conventions that we needed to settle on. Since we are primarily approaching this problem from a regression training approach with labels we wanted to give the physical label device a name. LASK seemed to be a good fit and we are… Read More »Naming Convention for Open Muscle
We needed a simple and transparent way to setup and update #openmuscle devices, so we created ugit. A simple single file micropython module that will keep a micropython board in sync with the latest changes in a GitHub repository. We enjoy the cheeky logo we created of a python trying to play nicely with an… Read More »Micropython OTA Updates Via Github – ugit
OTA updates by adding uget.py and uget_config.py to your repository! Currently uget is not able to traverse folders that don’t have items directly inside of the directory. But more features will be added as we modify it for #openmuscle. We are happy to be able to add to the community. Ever want to have your… Read More »Micropython OTA update from github: ugit
It was difficult to find the ESP32 S2 Mini pinout and even the wemos website does not specify what the pins are save for in the datasheet. According to the images The ESP32 S2 mini pinouts show pins 1-18,21,33-40 being accessible via the board. Link to the datasheet: https://www.wemos.cc/en/latest/s2/s2_mini.html Features of the board: The image… Read More »ESP32-S2 mini Pinout
The prototype is working and gathering data. The position of the pins still need some help being directed radially inward, so we are hard at work developing the new Cell cases. Check out the quickly edited video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuhdpZwuAQ4 More videos and news to come!
The boards have finally arrived and the Gerber files are being uploaded to Github. The diagram is currently being developed but here is a sneak peak of it, plus of the 5.3.0 prototype!!!
Check out the latest video where I adapt one of the prototype PCB boards for the new clevis pin design:https://youtu.be/q9u5g_cXG0A
The Open Muscle PCB is finally on its way from the factory in China. It has two sensors per cell along with 6 passthrough digital lines, 2 power buses, SSD1306 hookup, charging hookup, and others. The Hiwonder open-source wifi glove also came in this week. We will be using it to train the model we… Read More »Open Muscle PCB and Hiwonder wifi glove Update
