Build Your Own - Robot Arm

Product Code: ROBOTARM

Before you start planning your awesome giant war robot battle-suit, or even just a friendly cybernetic house-bot to tidy your bedroom and do the washing-up for you, it might be better to start small and learn some of the basics. The Build Your Own Robot Arm is the perfect place to start.

Anyone who wants a fascinating technical challenge can build their own remote controlled robot arm with this absorbing self-assembly kit. Although simple to construct, building the robot arm is a great way to learn more about basic robot technology and control systems.

With five motors for multi-directional control of five different joints, the robot arm features base rotation, shoulder, elbow and wrist motion as well as a functional gripping claw. The gripping claw also has an integrated LED spotlight for extra illumination of anything that you are going to pick up.

The five-way directional control allows the robot arm to grab, lift, position, lower and release items smoothly and efficiently.

A wired remote controller gives the user complete control over all of these functions, and in addition to learning about robotic operation during the assembly process, manually controlling the arm is the perfect way to learn more about how machines work.

So, start with this Build Your Own Robot Arm kit and who knows what you'll be working on in the future!

TozzaHen A great project for some one on one time with my son. He loved putting it together and I just helped with screws and guidance. Now all I can hear is the whirr of the motors as he won't stop playing with it.
bernoa this was a great and fun product to play with and helped me alot in my home research as i could get it to help build and hold up the item for me to build with so over all it was a great product and i would highly recommend it
HappyHarry It was a really enjoyable project for the easter holidays and is really fun picking up pencils and deploying them in pots.
trebor28 fun to make instructions quite clear wife says it kept me quiet waiting for her to buy me another one
janicetd Great product!
mrkane27 As a grown-up, I was initially skeptical about my birthday gift. What could I possibly do with a mechanical robot arm? The assembly was a slightly frustrating, but still fun experience with my flatmates. It required me to dig up my trimmer, nail file and a bunch of screwdrivers and, after spending the first 10 minutes trying to place 4 nuts on a gearbox, I had the epiphany that you can align them with a screw. It all went smoothly afterwards. Once it was complete, we spent some time moving juggling balls and Tic-Tac cases around. This was oddly satisfying, but the next part was much more exciting. With a DSLR camera, a translucid jelly bean and the LED light on the robot arm, you can make quite the light show. We spent the next three hours taking photos. It's a really great gift, but it does require patience and friends.
Keith1986 Easy to build and fun to play with when done.
jamie23 Great toy and not too difficult to build

dom123 Great! Easy to make but sometimes it can go wrong if you have dodgy connections, currently working on trying to make autonomous with an arduino =]
john29087 excellent fun

thyest A really fun and satisfying kit!
johnnyseven Without a shadow of doubt one of the best 30.00 I'v ever spent! The building of the model was challenging without being too difficult and the instructions were very clear and concise. That's just the beginning-once built the arm is absolutely brilliant in the way it operates. Great fun to play with and look at in a display case. A great beginners introduction to the world of Robotics. Well done Thumbs Up! :)
gavtaylor I really enjoyed building the robot arm, took me back to my childhood building models and in particular robots. Highly recommend!
singerking Well done it looks really good....I may have to buy one.
terryr Great kit that went together easily with good quality mouldings. Great fun to play with. Although I did not have any problem I would have liked to check the motor/gearbox units before they are buried in the robot.
Davo This was a xmas present from my son to see if I could still make models, like I did in the 50's. It was a little difficult as I have Parkinsons. but it was a worthwhile exercise.
jamescwcs awsome
