Based on the award winning Robotic Arm Edge Kit, OWI has made robotic arm technology a little more interesting and hydro-mechanically fun. With the Hydraulic Arm Edge, you can command six axes of varied movements. Make the gripper open and close up to 1.89 inches, wrist rotation of 180 degrees, wrist mobility of 98 degrees, elbow range of 44 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, and shoulder motion of 45 degrees. With a vertical reach of 16.35 inches, horizontal reach of 12.42 inches, and lifting capacity of 50g, your robotic friend is ready for your creativity to erupt. With the gripper removed, you can activate the suction mechanism which enables the user to elevate objects with a larger surface area (like a small mobile phone). Another fantastic feature is a braking system that is integrated in the lever controllers to carry out all commands accurately. Amazing!
How does this equate to fun? Your children or students will have total command and visual manipulation using the science principles of a hydraulic system and its application. The easy to follow instructions have detailed graphic illustrations and pave the way for successful and satisfying kit building. Compliment your science, technology, engineering, math and learning strategy (STEM). No battery or motor required. It's powered by water; hence, the "Hydraulic" significance and how it manipulates axes movement via lever controllers. For more than 30 years, OWI continues its pursuit to satisfy educational instructors and the most astute parents. Hydraulic Arm Edge is recommended for ages 10 and up, but with its 229 assembly parts, it will challenge the beginner engineering enthusiasts.
