Hey guys, This is my latest project.
A simple robotic arm controlled with an Arduino Uno and powered with a USB to computer.
I used the code from the examples and changed it to control 5 servos giving me a robotic arm!
So far i can get it to pick and place object like some batteries or pencils.
I can make it draw stuff to!


I mainly created it to help me lift and hold in place components like resistors or even to hold up a protoboard for me to solder with!.

Nice work!

Whats the reason behind the switches though? did you face a maximum of inputs on the arduino or something?

Overall though, thats a pretty sweet first robot arm, keep it up!
