BionicConcepts' Shop Announcement

Specializing in wearable robotic fashion Bionic Concepts combines art and robotics to create durable futuristic products. Bringing over 12 years of experience with robotics to the fashion world, our products don’t just look good but work well too. Committed to creating robust functional gadgets for costumes, conventions, stage shows, events, film, photography … and just for fun.

Over the last 5 years Bionic Concepts has become well known in the fashion industry for our line of working mechanical wings. We also create armor, and custom robotic gadgets. In addition to robotic fashion, we aim to bring fully functional robotic gadgets to the general public. Offering a prototyping service we are fully equipped for the design and construction of new devices. We frequently do custom work for a variety of applications at a very reasonable price.

The unique functionality of some of our products comes from the use of pressurized CO2 gas cartridges primarily used in BB guns, paintball, and emergency car and bicycle tire inflation devices. These gas cartridges can be purchased online or at bicycle shops around the world. Electric actuated devices make use of NiMH batteries. (Nickel Metal Hydride) These types of batteries are widely available and supply the high energy requirements needed for servos in items like the large mechanical wings.

Almost all items are also available with an electric equivalent. In almost all cases the battery powered version will be slower but last longer. Most battery powered items can be activated over a hundred times before being recharged. Most pressurized gas powered items can be activated about 40 or so times per cartridge but can open with dramatic speed and power. Each cartridge costs $1.50 – $3.00 depending where you buy them. This gas powered technology is known as pneumatics and has been around for over 50 years. It is almost identical to the more commonly known hydraulics. The main difference between pneumatics and hydraulics is that pneumatics use pressurized air and hydraulics use high pressure oil.
