Robot Arm Rumble

Below is a robot arm that I did build in my senior high school year for the Science Olympiad. It was so functional but yet so unorthodox that I was not permitted to compete. The arm used polar coordinates to reach a maximum radius of up to 4 feet.

Look at the overhang of this arm. It was a small challenge to obtain static equilibrium using wire as a variable counterweight in addition to a fixed counterwight–note that the counterweight system was able to rotate sucessfully with the rest of the arm.

This is awesome robot arm design that I never had a chance to build but designed for CS102.
