The Mantis Arm




Introduction: The Mantis Arm

this is a arm I originally did for school and i' m to this day the only person to finish it completely but of course once the grading was done i took it home and ripped it off its base that it was attached 2 so I can use it as an extended arm see what it used 2 do was pick up little cars . the whole thing is controlled by a cheap form of hydraulics its basically 6 syringes and 3 tubes :P with some wood and hot melt glue its not the greatest but I like to experiment with my own versions of human anatomy cause i hops to be a robotic engginer some day but right now i will stick to my prototypes :P please comment and give me your opinion

    very interesting...I don't know what to make of it, but it looks cool...

    i still can't figure out how to put a video on i have one but lol idunno how :P

    Hmm.. You could do with turning that second image right-side up (it would look a lot cooler), and I can't quite see which part does the actual grabbing? Maybe add a picture of it holding something, or, better, a video of it in use, like codonglev suggested.
