The Snapper is a robotic arm with five servos, including a micro servo in the gripper. The arm can pick up 50 gram objects and features a reach of 11.4 inches from shoulder to gripper. It runs on the Geekduino board and the kit also includes the Robot Geek Sensor shield, which makes it easy to attach one to the other. Additional sensors can also be added this way.

The kit also comes with a control panel and sample code, so it can be used right out of the box. The arm can simply be positioned in poses for capture and then those poses can be played back in sequence. Everything you need to program the sequences comes in the kit. The Snapper can be controlled via the manual control panel, programmed code, direct PC link control, or a custom built control panel.

You can buy the Snapper from Trossen for $199.95.
