In an age where resources are becoming scarce, it’s not a bad idea to get kids excited about being ‘off the grid’, and what better way than with the Hydraulic Arm Edge. Enthusiastic engineers will have an absolute blast piecing together over 220 parts to build a fully functional robot arm, powered with water.
When completed it has a vertical reach of about 16? and a horizontal reach of 12?. The base rotates, the shoulder moves, and the elbow and wrist bends. The gripper hand rotates and it can be removed to activate a suction mechanism. The arm can lift up objects, either with the gripper or suction function.
Recommended Ages: kids between 10 and 15 years old
