Product Description:

Go beyond the study of solar power, salt water-fueled vehicles, and robotics - expand your learning of hydraulic power and physics with this awesome kit. After you build your hydraulic arm out of the 229 included pieces, it will grasp, grip, pick up and open at the command and control of the operator no batteries or electricity required. The instructions are easy to follow, but will still challenge your beginning engineer. Enhance your science, technology, engineering, and math studies with this great hands-on learning option.

Publisher Description:

OWI, Inc.® - Moms and educators of the 2016 Creative Child Magazine Awards Program has privileged Hydraulic Arm Edge with two awards: "2016 TOY OF THE YEAR AWARD and "2016 KIDS PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD.

No longer riding the wings of the award winning Robotic 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. WOW!

How does this equate to fun? Your children will have total command and visual manipulation using the science principles of a Hydraulic system and its application. Easy to follow instructions with detailed graphic illustrations pave the way for successful and satisfying kit building. Compliment your engineering, math, science, and technology learning strategy. No battery or motor required. It is powered by water; thus, the "Hydraulic significance and how it manipulates axes movement via lever controllers. For more than 3 decades, OWI continues its pursuit to satisfy educational instructors and the most discriminating parents. Hydraulic Arm Edge is recommended for ages 10 and up, but with its 229 assembly parts, it will challenge the beginner engineering enthusiasts.

I'm beginning to learn about robots(i'm 11) and putting them together and thought this would was within my budget to purchase for myself. Would have liked it to cost a little less. Thanks.

Great project for the kids and a parent
I got this for my kids last Christmas (they were 8.5 & 9.5). It's been a long process but they've loved it. They started it with my husband. The pieces all have to be snipped out of a plastic frame. Everything is well labeled and the directions, while lengthy, are complete and easy to follow. I ended up finishing the project with them. The screws are hard to do and required a parent to help. My boys were able to finish it over the last few days and had an absolute blast. They learned so much putting this together and under hydraulic pressure now. They are getting pretty good at maneuvering the arm to stack blocks and move things. The product is sturdy and the pieces were fairly easy to pop out and clean up (to make sure they didn't have burrs). I definitely think this a great project.

My son LOVES the Hydraulic Arm Edge! He was very engaged in the building process, and is enjoying using the finished product. However, with over 200 pieces to cut out of a mold and attach together, I would definitely recommend adult supervision. My son has experience with model building, and still required some adult supervision. Overall, the product is sturdy and well made. The instructions are easy to follow, but are lengthy. It will bring many hours of exploration and enjoyment. I highly recommend this product. Thank you, Rainbow Resource, for providing another fun, educational product!
