Robot Arms Make Great Student Projects

Robotic arm (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) - A robotic arm is a type of mechanical arm, usually programmable, with similar functions to a human arm; the arm may be the sum total of the mechanism or may be part of a more complex robot. The links of such a manipulator are connected by joints allowing either rotational motion (such as in an articulated robot) or translational (linear) displacement.[1][2] The links of the manipulator can be considered to form a kinematic chain. The terminus of the kinematic chain of the manipulator is called the end effector and it is analogous to the human hand.
" arm has 3 hinge points: the shoulder, the elbow and the wrist. Because we have these 3 hinge points we can move freely in an area."
