The OWI Robotic Arm Trainer is a good introductory kit, requiring only a screwdriver to assemble. The kit is complete with five pre-assembled gearboxes and a wired controller that allow you to control the opening and closing of the gripper, rotation of the wrist, movement of the elbow and shoulder, and rotation of the arm on its base. The completed arm can lift up to approximately 4.6 ounces (130 grams).

Assembly of this robot arm will give you a sense for the mechanical challenges involved in creating robotic manipulators, and the see-through plastic allows you to observe the motion of the gears even after the kit is assembled.

This robot arm does not include any sensors or electronics, but because each axis is powered by a separate DC motor, it is possible to add your own electronics to control the arm through a computer or microcontroller. A PC interface board is available through the manufacturer, but we do not stock it at this time.

Note: The OWI 007 Robotic Arm Trainer is a kit; assembly is required. Four D batteries are required but not included.
