Forget about batteries and servos. This OWI Hydraulic Robotic arm kit is fully powered by water. It also comes with more axes of movement than most others in this price range.
You can command up six axes of movement. This includes the wrist in two directions, base rotation, shoulder motion, and a vertical/horizontal reach. It includes a lever control system to control the hydraulics on every axis.
This arm comes with 229 parts, so is recommended for ages 12 and up. It’s a very simple but effective way to teach children (and adults!) about the power of hydraulics, and comes with easy to follow instructions.
- Axis: Five
- Controls: Five levers, one for each axis
- Axis Control: Individual hydraulic cylinder
- Power: Water
- Price Range: Under $100
