These tiny motors give DIY and classroom robotics a huge boost

Servo Socks are cases that snap over a common, replaceable servo motor adding material to work with. Unlike a kit motor, you don’t have to feel guilty about drilling a hole, carving a corner or cutting part of it away, that’s the point!

Made from 100% recycled plastic, Servo Socks are simple cases that fit over servo motors (used in Education, Prototyping, Robotics, Animatronics, Garage tinkering, etc.) … they help make stuff move!

Known as the “Anti-Kit,” Servo Socks encourage the use of everyday tools and materials that take the place of more expensive, complex parts normally found in DIY builds. With Servo Socks on board, makers can cut, carve, sand, drill, screw and shape them to fit their individual projects. Plus each Servo Sock installs with a quick snap, so their super easy to use.

ServoSocks are eco-friendly, inexpensive and perfect for educators as they help develop hands-on skills in building and being creative while solving problems.

Servo motors needed more material around them so that regular sized hardware, screws, and fasteners can be used to effortlessly make stuff that moves.  You can cut, drill, carve, shape, sand, and screw into Servo Socks because they are just like wood. Oh, and no screws to install the servo so it only takes a few seconds to snap a servo into a sock.

This all started as a desire to make the connection between common materials and servo motors much, much easier.  When we came up with a great solution, it only made sense to want to share it with all of the other makers out there.  Running this campaign is going to allow us to test the waters and strategically build a company that not only produces our product but ideally supports a great community of makers with the same mind-set that drove the creation of Servo Socks.
