New arm mockup

In addition to a pair of new hands for the robot, I am also experimenting with a new design for the arm. At the moment I have created a mock-up in cardboard so that I can make changes easily. The new arm adds shoulder and wrist joints that were not previously included in the design.

Many thanks to +Western New England University for donating the pens which will be used to make two new hands for the robot. For anyone interested in how the pens will be used checkout my original post here. The driving force behind the design of this robot is to design a way for humanoid robots to be constructed with minimal costs by taking advantage of materials that are radially available, and also recycling to help reduce costs.

Happy Earth day everyone and thank you for your continued support!
