The Hydraulic Robotic Arm Edge is the newest take on robotics from renowned educational toy maker, OWI, the creator of the original Robotic Arm Edge. This hydro-mechanically fun model needs to be built before you can enjoy controlling it, all the while learning about hydraulic mechanisms. The arm has two ways to grab objects: with is gripper or by suction, double the fun! No battery or motor required. It is powered by water and you who can manipulate the axes movement via lever controllers.
Your children will have total command of their Hydraulic Arm Edge with its six axes of movements: open and close the gripper to grab objects, rotate and bend the wrist, the elbow and shoulder, as well as rotate the arm on its base. Another prodigious attribution is a braking system that is integrated in the lever controllers to execute all commands accurately, WOW! Wih a vertical reach of 16.35 inches, horizontal reach of 12.42 inches, and lifting capacity of 50g, your robotic friend is ready for your genius to erupt!
How does this equate to fun? Easy to follow instructions with detailed graphic illustrations pave the way for the successful and satisfying kit building while visualizing the science principles of a Hydraulic system and its applications, a great complement to engineering, math, science, and technology learning strategy.
Recommended for ages 10 and up, but with its 229 assembly parts, it will challenge the beginner engineering enthusiasts.
