We are making a robotic arm that can help you make just about anything, from prototype to production. We intend to democratize manufacturing, allowing anyone to make and bring their product to market.
This open source platform has unparalleled hackability. Our fertile tool post allows for almost unlimited tool head varieties. If we don’t have the tool head you need, you can make one. Do you think others will like your tool too? You can sell them also, no licenses or permission needed.
It will be a super fun project!
So far we have attached tools for:
3D Contour Milling
Hot Wire Foam Cutting
Pick and Place SMD components
We have also had some fun attaching a gripper and turning our arm into a Robotic Bartender
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

This is my arm! Thank you for sharing and thank you to Adafruit for great tutorials and parts. They made this possible. Could someone from Adafuit please contact me? That would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
