The KidzLabs Hydraulic Robotic Arm kit comes with dozens of parts to assemble a fully functioning robotic arm that uses only hydraulic power to generate movement. With the touch of a button, this arm can reach and grasp hold of objects to 46 centimetres away. Build it to test your fine motor skills and to develop your knowledge of fluid mechanics. Watch as the change in pressure inside the robotic arm generates equal pressure, resulting in grasping motions that can move objects within range.
