OWI Robotic Arm Edge Kit makes learning about robotics, circuitry and assembly FUN!
"To demonstrate or teach, this is the best kit of its kind." That's what George Devol, inventor of the first robotic arm (one of Popular Mechanics' 50 most important inventions of the past 50 years), had to say about the Robotic Arm Edge Kit. High praise, to be sure. And rightfully so.
Curious youngsters will learn all about gears, circuitry, and how to follow instructions as they build their own robot arm to play with. It has an impressive range... the wrist motion is 120°, elbow range is 300°, base rotation is 270°, base motion is 180°, and the arm can pick up 100 grams... making this Robotic Kit a no-brainer for the price. For ages 10 and up. Requires 4 "D" batteries (not included).
