A big success on Kickstarter, the easy-to-operate uArm is now available for $399 directly from UFactory. Program it to move chess pieces, deal cards, or assist you with packaging. The metal arm features a vacuum-powered suction cup on the tip, perfect for picking up small items. Movements can be easily recorded and played back, with a couple of button clicks. Just walk the robot through the motions and it will remember the pattern.
The kit comes fully assembled and includes all necessary components. A pair of extra bluetooth modules can be added for $30 more, so that the arm can be controlled via a smartphone or PC.
