An extendable robotic arm with LEGO pneumatics

Robotic arms are often used to carry out repetitive, material handling and precision tasks in manufacturing industries. Often robotic arms are pneumatic, i.e. use compressed air as its main source of energy.

Pneumatic systems can work safely in hazardous environments such as  mining, chemical, petroleum and painting industries.

It is  possible to build and control pneumatic systems with LEGO. We started two years ago, when during Animal Allies we hanged our robot on the wall using pneumatics.

This year we took out our LEGO Education set and we had fun. Check our youtube video to see how it works for mining on Mars !
