Crazy Al Cayne caught up with OWI Marketing Manager, Daniel Ramirez to get the scoop and a demo of their latest interactive toy the “Hydraulic Arm Edge” kit!!
About “Hydraulic Arm Edge”:
OWI has made robotic arm technology a little more interesting and hydro-mechanically fun. With Hydraulic Arm Edge, command six axes of varied movements: the gripper to open and close up to 1.89 inches, wrist rotation of 180 degrees, wrist mobility of 98 degrees, elbow range of 44 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, and shoulder motion of 45 degrees. With a vertical reach of 16.35 inches, horizontal reach of 12.42 inches, and lifting capacity of 50g, your robotic friend is ready for your genius to erupt. With the removal of the gripper, you can activate the suction apparatus. This feature enables the user to elevate objects with a larger surface area (like a small mobile phone). Another prodigious attribution is a braking system that is integrated in the lever controllers to execute all commands accurately.
The Easy to follow instructions with detailed graphic illustrations pave the way for successful and satisfying kit building. This is a great compliment your or your kids engineering, math, science, and technology learning strategy. You don’t need a battery and there’s no motor required. All the functions of the arm are powered by water hence the “Hydraulic” in the name 😉
The 229 piece toy is amazing and it follow OWI’s mission of creating different uses for alternative energy. We think it’s AWESOME!
