Product Description

Bionic Robotic Arm

The robotic arm of the future is here! Assemble this cutting-edge, segmented arm from almost 300 plastic pieces and learn how each part comes together in its intricate mechanical design. This innovative system is controlled by a pair of joysticks that pull and release a network of nylon cables threaded throughout, enabling intuitive and precise movements, much like how tendons work to control the muscles in your arm. The result is a mesmerizing motion reminiscent of a cyborg creature’s tentacles in a sci-fi movie!

Use the buttons on the top of each joystick to open, close, and rotate the claw 180 degrees. Challenge yourself or your friends to grab, move, and release various objects. Bonus: Switch out the gripper claw with a model of an eel’s head to transform your robotic arm into a slithery bionic eel.

A full-color manual guides model building and experimentation and provides engaging scientific information about how this type of robotic arm works while offering up real-world examples.

A classic tool reimagined: combines a tried-and-true play pattern with a fresh, functional design and relevant, real-world technology
Stunning mechanical design with cutting-edge control system – no motors or electricity required!
Incredible range of motion and unparalleled flexibility:
Arm: 360-degree, 23-inch horizontal working area and 180-degree, 15-inch vertical working area
Claw: 180-degree rotation, 2.5-inch maximum grip
Bonus: learn about biomimicry — the study of how models, systems, and elements found in nature are incorporated into everyday engineering.

I love shopping here

I love shopping here for unique and interesting birthday presents. They offer free wrapping for gifts and the associate that helped me did a fantastic job of wrapping odd shaped items. She really took pride in the work she was doing.

Great for teachers

Great selection of educational toys, tools and books for kids. Great for teachers and parents alike. Staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. It could use a paintjob, it felt a bit like a warehouse with the bare walls and minimal colour.
