Fun robotic arm hack from Average Man vs Raspberry Pi:
I’m one of those people who never really finished growing up. I can’t drink water without squash, I regularly forget family birthdays and I still giggle when someone passes wind.
The positive side to this lack of maturity is having no inhibitions to play with what some other 30+ aged humans might consider ‘silly things’. I don’t have to get far into a robotics project for a close friend to tell me to “grow up”, but they really don’t know what they’re missing.
Over the last month or so I’ve been playing with exactly this kind of project – a robot arm! This isn’t just any old kit arm project though, I’ve combined it with a couple of add-on boards and some other spare kit to make a fully analog controlled ‘robot arm panel slider thing’!
