I have a new device which is a candidate to go online: a RobotArm.

See pictures of the device while we build it together and test

The device has 5 DC motors (gripper, wrist, elbow, shoulder and base), but no electric feedback about position.

The crane had just 3 DC motors and the same non existant feedback - which lead to its end...

I still consider putting this online, maybe detecting the output current could prevent damage.

That is what I bought it for. But I think I will first put a new version of the truck online - the arm will have to wait.

Any suggestions how to set it up? Build towers with blocks? Empty the truck dump box?

i Think build towers with blocks is good idea, who will buid a higher tower, you should make smaller blocks to be fun to control it

If you are looking for a possible replacement

I caught a review of the arm in www.botmag.com


you could use it to empty the truck box or some type of stacking game.
