Boy's Thames & Kosmos Mechanical Engineering Robotic Arms Kit
Boy's Thames & Kosmos Mechanical Engineering Robotic Arms Kit
Learn how pneumatic and hydraulic systems are used to enable the industrial robots to manipulate heavy objects, such as automobile components, and explore mechanical engineering principles firsthand by assembling and experimenting with these working models. A 36-page, full-color manual guides kids through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions to make six mechanical models of the types of arms, grabber claws, and legs found on robotic machines. By using the pneumatic systems that activate the models by controlled air pressure, kids can create a pivoting robotic laboratory arm with gripper claw, assemble an extra-long grabber claw to pick up things that are just out of reach, build a vertical three-fingered claw that can lift a cup up off the table keeping it level, experiment with models of robotic exoskeleton arms and legs and make a compact grabber claw. Style Name: Thames & Kosmos Mechanical Engineering Robotic Arms Kit. Style Number: 5503903. Available in stores.
