|If youve ever seen video of those giant, articulated robotic arms in an auto assembly plant doing their thing, you know what true modern marvels they are. The speed and precision with which they grasp a part, swing it into place on the chassis, or make spark-spewing spot welds in rapidfire succession, really blows the mind. So what if each robotic arm replaced about 200 human workers. They kept wanting a lunch break every day, and medical benefits. Well, the Robotic Arm Edge is a second-generation, scaled down version of the real deal and it hasnt put anyone out of work. In fact, it has probably created a job or two at the factory of OWI, the premier manufacturer of consumer robot kits. You build the robot arm and its cabled control console from plastic-molded parts and hardware following the illustrated assembly manual. Once they are assembled (and no soldering is required), you use the five levers on the controller to command the arm to move in any of 12 different ways. Five gearboxes, five joints, and five motors actuate the gripper open and close motions, wrist motion of 120 degrees, an elbow range of 300 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, base motion of 180 degrees, vertical reach of 15 inches, and horizontal reach of 12 inches. The arm can lift small objects weighing up to 3.5 oz. An LED search light on the gripper illuminates the target object and allows nighttime play.|
