Here’s an interesting open source project on Kickstarter the world’s first robot arm kit for the Raspberry Pi, the MeArm Pi:

We believe in helping people understand how the world works. With so much development going on in robotics at the moment, now is the perfect time to get to know what it takes to build your own robot. The MeArm Pi is an award winning robotic arm kit that’s simple enough for a child to assemble. It integrates directly with the Raspberry Pi you know and love and you can either control it directly using the on-board joysticks or by programming it from the Pi in your favourite programming language.

Take control of the world around you.

You can visit the project’s Kickstart page and their website Mime Industries for more info.

Check out the video after the break.

    As a learning experience, sure. Once that’s done, though….well…

    You posted this right next to a bot that draws pictures… It seems logical to ask if there’s a version that can draw.
