I love this funky robotic arm that looks like it’s something from the set of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. The arm is constructed of techno-junk, recycled PCB material, cassette motors, 15-gauge wire, fishing line. The “brains” for the arm is a 6502 CPU from the 1980s. Tres retro!

While you’re on the site, check out some of the builders other ingenious BEAM-ish bots. [Thanks, R. Mark Adams!]
