Jamie has built a robotic arm

Jamie has built a robotic arm. The kit with over a hundred parts came together really nicely. It appears to be rock solid and reliable. We are looking forward to some robotic experiments using this device.

The "industrial robot" design provides five actuator motors, giving it considerable freedom(s) of movement.

The arm is controlled manually ... but I am thinking about how to hook it up to a computer. More on that later once I have discussed the idea with Jamie.

First step was to get this working, and then to get some video of the robot in action.

Here is a first video of the robot arm in action:
