Robotic arm

I know nothing about electronics at the moment, so I'd need to start from the basics. Ultimately, I'd like to be able to create machines like the above listed that can perform a set of specified actions in sequence based on user inputs from software.

You need to learn electronics (component level, microcomputer level, motors and control, switching and power control), programing, mechanics, hydraulics, plumbing, mechanical fabrication (welding, cutting, shaping), Fiberglass or plastic fabrication. Oh and parts scrounging.
