Why Does Endurance Deal With Robots?

It’s high time we should tell why we deal with robots, what future awaits them, and what our tasks and objectives are.

What does motivate us?

All of us are driven by the wish to make this world more practical and comfortable.

Do you have any idea how much time a day you waste driving a car, shopping, lining in stores, waiting to be served in restaurants and cafes? More than two hours, at best. I figured out. Just fancy that! We also have natural needs to be satisfied: sleeping eating, etc. A half of our life we dally away while could have spent quality time.

To improve the situation a little, we presume that cars should change to auto driving and take passengers from point A to point B without driver’s participation. Many companies have been already working in this direction. That is great! So do we. Google, Mercedes, Amazon, Tesla, Volvo test and showcase their revolutionary achievements at CES 2016.

Automatic courier delivery of mail, packages, goods to customers’ addresses and offices, as well as inside buildings could save a great deal of working time too. Do you remember the little robots of Star Wars?

Intellectual pilots are our immediate goal in projecting and assembling robots.

It is important, at that, to find not just a troubleproof but also a budget solution. Robot-couriers, robot-waiters, robot-autopilots to drive cars will help make a huge technological jump and raise labor productivity. It will make free substantial human resources and create additional free time.

That is why we develop robot-waiters, telepresence robots and TrackBots.

The pre-seed round of investment attraction to the Endurance project is closed

The Russian American startup Endurance specializing in development and sales of high technology production, mainly, lasers, diode laser engravers, telepresence robots and robotized systems declares the pre-seed round of investments attraction to the project closed.
During the pre-seed round the company was officially rated; though, the private investments were completed as convertible note. The next step includes a foreign legal body organization to structure the upcoming rounds of fundraising.
We plan to use the raised money to increase sales of lasers and diode laser engravers and to complete the SelfieBot development http://old.endurancerobots.com/about-endurance-3/produkty/selfibot/.
In the nearest months the company plans to increase the laser sales and shipping and make a MVP SelfieBot to organize the seed round of fundraising in the 1st quarter of 2016. The rough calculation of the seed round is about $K250-500 for 6-12 months.

The company’s target is the international market, Europe and the USA, in particular.

The head office of the company is located on the premises of the Sapfir plant at the address:
Moscow, ul. Scherbakovskaya, 53.
The project team consists of more than 30 people.
The assembly is in San Rafael, Ca (USA).

Our private investors are:
Krivoschekov Yeugheniy Yurievich – OJSC “ForBank”, Planning and Estimating manager.
Podfigurnyi Ivan Dragushevich – ex-trader of OJSC Deutschbank of Moscow.

Legal support of the deal is provided by FMF Capital.

Endurance makes a new 2.5 board for L-Cheapo lasers

IMG_8414 IMG_8501

The new board supports 2.0, 2.1, 3.5, 3.8 and 5W laser (depending on the resistors installed).

It features a prototyping area and integrated PWM.

The new board will be more efficient and stable to provide our consumers better experience of working with Endurance L-Cheapo lasers and engraving machines

Expected market launch Dec, 1, 2016, at the latest.

Multi-color 3D Printing made easy with Geeetech Prusa I3 M201

3D Printing is cool but most 3D Printing are single color prints or prints made in 2 colors with Dual nozzle 3D printed. If you need prints by mixing color filaments you have to be an expert user of the 3D Printer with months of experience to know when to pause the printing and change filaments to the preferred color. Until now there was no easy solution to it but with the launch of Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 it would become a child’s play.

Geeetech Prusa I3 M201 is a modified variant of the popular Prusa I3 series 3D printer. It features a unique 2-in-1-out switchable hotend which can extrude 2 filaments through one nozzle. This allows users to use the printer as a color palette, and make prints with alternating colors, blending color and gradients.

Endurance is starting producing and shipment 3.5 watt diode lasers More video and demo video will be available soon.















A year ago, L-Cheapo was developed to provide an open-hardware solution to laser cutting. The L-Cheapo Mark 1 hit 300% of its crowdfunding goal and was delivered faster than most crowdfunded projects in the same category.
link: indiegogo.com note Mark 1 looks very different.

Earlier this year, we have made new models of L-Cheapo.
The actual board revision is 2.4 (Mark 2 and Mark 3 use the same board: Mark 3 has more resistors, a bigger diode, and a bigger transistor, but the same PCB, and a refined design allowing to turn most of 3D printers into a hybrid tool that can not only engrave but also cut wood, plastic and leather.

Today we introduce Mark 3. It fits in the same footprint as Mark 2, looks suspiciously like Mark 2, and is wired in the exactly the same way as Mark 2…
This is not about the same product in a smaller case for a higher price. Mark 3 outputs 70% more photons than its predecessor, resulting in fewer passes and deeper cuts. At 3.5 watts optical continuous output, it’s the strongest solid-state cutting laser kit currently available.

Both Mark 2 and Mark 3 are now available with an optional PWM connector that lets you control the output via any logic-level pin, from 15% to 100% (if for some reason, such as engraving grayscale images, you need less laser power).

L-Cheapo Mark 2 MSRP = $195
L-Cheapo Mark 3 MSRP = $295

Order now!

Only for $295 + shipping costs.

Worldwide delivery available.

What is telepresence?

The concept of telepresence technology may be interpreted in different ways but it means one thing. It’s a system, which makes distant speakers feel as if they were really present. Every innovation idea has a hidden goal to somehow improve the world. Initially, the telepresence technology was created for conferences. The teleconference systems, used today, differ from other systems of videoconference connections (Skype, Lin Phone, Viber, etc.). First of all, it features stereo sounding, life-sized image transfer of distant participants, elongated “video wall” made of several LCD-panels or projectors, all of which requires a special room and facilities. Due to the high complexity, the price of the solutions of this kind starts at a hundred thousand dollars. Far from every company can afford it. While humanity advances a grand pas and progress is impressive, telepresence robots have become an interesting solution of the problem.
