If you are looking to learn more about robotics you may be interested in a new project which is being posted to the Hackaday website, detailing how to build a 3D printed open source robotic arm complete with built in control panel.

Pedro Petit Robot is an Open Source Robotic Arm 4 axes designed in France and fully 3D printed. Pedro Petit Robot is programming with the IDE Arduino, it can catch and move some objects with a high precision. Pedro Petit Robot is fun and safe way to learn for teacher, student, programmer, artist, designer, amateur or even curious to learn the basics of robotics.

Components required to build the robotic arm:

The servo motor 1 placed at the base of Pedro Petit Robot allows it to rotate 180 degrees on itself giving a very wide field of view of its environment.
• The servo motor 2 placed shoulder level allows it to rotate 180 degrees vertically.
• The actuator 3 the elbow makes it possible to lift objects gripped.
• Servo 4 is Pedro Petit Robot’s gripper which allows it to catch any object in its field of view and move.
