OWI Robotics – Hydraulic Arm Edge – kit (@OWI_Robotics)

Published

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!

Big BMX, MTB and Toys things happening with the brand!

For the first time ever Hyper Toy Co. setup shop at The North American International Toy Fair  in New York City!

As most of you may already know, Hyper is known for their high end BMX racing frames and freestyle frames (High end MTB frames coming soon) under the Hyper Bicycles Brand. Hyper is also known for their full range of entry level BMX, casual bicycles and Nitro Circus branded goodies through their retail partners, Walmart, Target and Sam’s Club. But what most of you may not know is Hyper has been making Ride-On toys like the Yamaha Raptor Ride-on for 10 years!!

Now with the addition of their new Yamaha R/C cars, scooters and skateboards, Hyper is making the move to put all their products under the Hyper Toy Co. brand!

I caught up with Hyper Brand manager and good friend Jud Ciancio who talked about the new branding direction. He also gave me the run down of the products Hyper is coming with this year like their carbon (full carbon frame) MTB complete which will be available at Walmart for $399. The awesome Mission 1 high end BMX racing frame gets an upgrade and will be called Mission 2. The high end MTB dirt jumper is getting a lot closer to being released and a lot more!!

I didn’t know Hyper was going to be at Toy Fair so it was definitely a pleasant surprise!!  Jud has been supporting me as a rider and event promoter for years and it’s awesome to see the growth of the brand over the years. It’s looking like this year is gonna be the best one yet!!
