Introduction

FreaksArm
FreaksArm is a supper low-cost and miniature desktop robotic arm. It's a 4-axis arduino-based robotic arm. It is made up by laser cut wood parts and can be assembled in hour. It is very suitable for children education and edutainment in the process of getting to know mechanical arm's assembly. It's affordable, simplified and no soldering requird. FreaksArm is perfect for children and beginners to learn about robotic arm, designed to make them understand robotics, electronics and programming.

FreaksArm project is open source. This means all of designs and codes, including cutting file, PCB schematics, are available to you for free. You can download, view, edit, and learn from all of the works that has been put into the project. FreaksArm consists of the wood parts, two joystick modules and our Freaduino UNO(Arduino compatible). It can be controlled by a joystick and PC command. You can also control it by Bluetooth (BLE Center), wireless, hand gesture of leap motion, mind control and more.
