HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO CREATE YOUR OWN CONTROLLABLE HAND??

This article is about how to make a DIY Hydraulic Powered Robotic Arm made from cardboard. I think that this creation is very cool because now you have an invention that can hold things and that you control yourself. This relates to engineering because it shows how hydraulic things can work. This creation shows how easy it is to make anything you want.

 

This article is about how to make a really cool robotic arm using syringes. The materials needed for this project are:

  • x-acto knife (for cutting and making holes)
  • ruler
  • cardboard
  • hot glue gun
  • 7 syringes
  • two bendable wires
  • cotton swabs
  • a liquid
  • food coloring to know which syringe controls what part *optional* 

**The video above will show you how to build it**
