This instructable is for a simple motorized K'nex Claw. The claw can grab most things. The instructable is to allow the reader to build the claw and improve on in it in any fashion they choose (style, strength, size, etc.) and use it for practically anything.
Here's a video demonstrating how it works.
Note: Go to the last step (step 9) of this instructable to see a video of how this claw was used. This can give you some ideas of what you can possibly do with this claw.
