Challenge your engineering skills and construct and control your own robotic arm!
With no motor or battery required, all you need is water to power this mechanical masterpiece. The clearly illustrated instructions show you how to carefully assemble the 229 pieces, allowing you to take a closer look at how hydraulic power works. Once completed, use the different levers to manoeuvre the arm through six axes of movement with great accuracy. You can lift objects that weigh up to 50g with the gripper or switch to the sucker cup attachment to elevate items with smooth surfaces. With all these options at the end of your fingertips, the possibilities for your ingenuity are endless!
Eleven year old boys are still boys rather than teenagers. A serious outdoor kite makes a great present for an 11 year old, but if they are getting seriously into style, a piece of room decoration might be welcome. Construction kits that involve the opportunity to build cool, outlandish models are popular at this age.
