Mechanical Engineering Robotic Arms
Explore mechanical engineering principles firsthand as you assemble and play with these working models. The models use a pneumatic system which uses air pressure to activate the models. Pump up the air reservoir with the hand pump, then flick the switch to operate the model. Construct a pivoting robotic laboratory arm with gripper claw. Assemble an extra long grabber claw to pick up things that are just out of reach. Build a vertical three-fingered claw that can lift a cup up off the table keeping it level. Make a compact grabber claw that you can slip into your shirt sleeve to pretend you have a robotic hand. A 36-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions.
