Arduino-based Robotic Manipulator

About: I'm currently using my Instructable page as a place where I can regroup all my projects. It's a good way for me to see what projects I've done so far and it's easier to organize them this way. I will not doc...
This is my first prototype of a robotic manipulator. Until now, I've really been focusing on the physic aspect of the arm so I haven't been working a lot on the program aspect. The current goal of this project is to create a solid platform to reproduce every-day actions and develop my programming aptitudes. The arm has 4 degrees of freedom: Bicep rotation, Elbow, Wrist and Gripper. I still haven't worked on the shoulder but it will come one day ! It's really basic but I'm surprised at what it can accomplish for the time I've spent on this project ! Btw, this is my first instructable ! Enjoy :D

Thanks for your interest !

    This is an awesome project. Would it be possible to list the parts and coding you used. Thank you

    It would be cool but it would also take me a lot of time making a good and clear step-by-step. Right now, I don't have the time but I will take your idea in consideration ! Thank you for your interest Kiteman !

    Thinking about what contest prizes are currently available (a laser cutter!!!), it might be worth taking the effort.
