Parents' Choice Silver Award Winner 2017 and Featured in Purdue University's Engineering Gift Guide for 2017

  • Build six mechanical models of the types of arms, grabber claws, and legs found on robotic machines
  • Explore mechanical engineering principles firsthand as you assemble and play with these working models
  • Learn how pneumatic and hydraulic systems are used in industrial robots to enable the robots to manipulate heavy objects, such as automobile components
  • Models use a pneumatic system which uses air pressure to activate the models
  • Pump up the air reservoir with the hand pump, then flick the switch to operate the model
  • A pneumatic piston enables the grabber claws to open and close rapidly and to grip objects with enough force to lift them
  • The piston can also move the arms and legs on models back and forth, demonstrating how robotic limbs move
  • Construct a pivoting robotic laboratory arm with gripper claw, extra long grabber claw to pick up things that are just out of reach, vertical three-fingered claw that can lift a cup up off the table keeping it level, experiment with models of robotic exoskeleton arms and legs, and a compact grabber claw that you can slip into your shirt sleeve to pretend you have a robotic hand
  • Assemble 6 models including: a pivoting robotic arm, robotic hand, robotic grabber, robotic claw, exoskeleton legs, and exoskeleton arms
  • Kit contains: 204 building pieces, and 36 page color instruction book
  • No batteries required
  • Ages: 7-14
