Design and prototype manipulators.
These devices are to be incorporated into systems like Mosquito Scientific Instrument System, the Touch-sensitive robot for micromanipulation, and others.
They are also distributed separably.
Now commercialized by Tactus Scientific Inc.
Manipulators path to market
Piezo Micromanipulator on MindMup (members only)
- MPM - S1: Piezo (stack and tube) 2 to 3 axis
- MPM - S2: Low cost 1 to 3 axis
- MPM - S3: Long range single axis stackable
- MPM - S4: Tilt long range manipulator
- Piezo Driver (Frederic and Jonathan)
- MPM - S1 Piezo Driver (Antonio and Jonathan)
- Revenue will be generated by selling the xyz piezo micromanipulator, with the Mosquito Scientific Instrument or separately.
- The Mosquito will be integrated within the Scientific Instrument System, the Field System and the Educational System. All members involved in design and prototyping will be compensated from the income generated by sales, in proportion with their involvement. Any future improvement will be accounted for.
- Members involved in the manufacturing process will get compensated according to the amount of time they put in.
- Members involved on marketing and branding will also get a cut of sells.
- A cut is also allocated to members operating in the social space, helping our community to grow and improving the image of our community, and to members working on SENSORICA's infrastructure.
