OWikit makes a great robotic arm kit, and it is availible in hobby shops, online at many stores and i believe through owikit. This kit is about a $100. There is even an option to connect it to your computer by adding a board to it (availible in an upgrade kit through owi or from the same place you bough the arm.)

If you don't need it to be electronic, the simplest method I've seen is to use pieces of wood and syringes. All you need is scrap wood and basic woodworking skills, and two syringes and a length of tubing for each joint. There are plenty of websites available through Google, including this PDF that has instructions for building one with a giant claw (pictured below)
