SERVO SOCKS

We believe that servo motors needed more material around them so that regular-sized hardware, screws, and fasteners can be used to effortlessly make stuff that moves.  With Servo Socks, you can cut, drill, carve, shape, sand, and screw into them because they are just like wood.

Oh, and no screws to install the servo so it only takes a few seconds to put a servo into a sock.

Servo Socks are cases that snap over common, replaceable servo motors adding material to work with.

DRILL

CUT

SAND

SCREW

CARVE

Unlike a kit motor, you don’t have to feel guilty for drilling a hole, carving off a corner or cutting part of it away… that’s the point!


How do Servos Work?

Play with the 2 sliders below to see the difference between position-able and continuous rotation servos!

Anti-Kit

We believe the best kit is no kit at all.

So much can be accomplished and learned while using the stuff you can find or the material you like to use from…

  • Your local hardware store/building centre
  • A scrap bin in any wood/fabrication shop
  • The jars and drawers full of random bits and “junk” around your house
  • Your recycling bin
  • Repurposed broken things

We consider Servo Socks the “Anti-kit” because we are providing a great way to build movement into projects without having to commit to a kit.

All that we provide is an incredibly universal connection between whatever you are making with common, replaceable hobby servo motors.

Universal Control

There are so many ways to run/drive the servo motors you build into your projects because running them is also universal.

Servo motors can be controlled using…

  • Radio Control “RC”
  • Arduino
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Micro.bit
  • Servo control boards
  • …just to name a few!

Being able to control servo motors in so many ways was a big part of our decision and goal in not dictating how you can control your projects
