This time-lapse video shows how easily the Arduino Tinkerkit* Braccio Robotic Arm kit can be assembled. While manipulating the different parts and screwing it together, you will learn a lot about how it actually works. The assembly is real fun, and thanks to the Arduino test sketch found in the examples, aligning the servomotors is a piece of cake too.

Soon you’ll be familiar with the arm itself and its robotics features, and you will learn how to control its movements through your smartphone. Since it was designed with versatility in mind, you’ll get new ideas about possible applications, satisfying your own needs. Imagine the arm holding a camera and following a subject, or drawing light patterns in the dark with a light source. You could also use it to make musical sounds with percussive instruments and much more.

You may also enjoy watching the Braccio manipulating three glasses filled with liquid.

*TinkerKit is an educational platform from Arduino, with preassembled sensors and actuators aimed at reducing the complexity of using and programming Arduino. No skills are required in physics or electrical engineering.
