The Robotic Arm Kit is a great learning tool for electronics enthusiasts and is exclusive to Maplin Electronics.

First you open the box and get to work assembling the kit. To assemble the kit you'll need a screwdriver, a pair of wire cutters and some needle nose pliers. The instructions are clear to follow and assembling the arm should take 1-2 hours.

Once built, you can connect it to your PC (or Raspberry Pi) and program it to perform all sorts of robotic movements. The simplest method to controlling the arm is pretty straight forward - once you've got the software installed on your PC, you just point at the part of the arm (on screen) that you want to affect and click. You also have the option to program a series of movements.

The included software is compatible with 32bit operating Windows based systems

PC Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
