Hydraulic Robot Arm

I thought this would be a super fun project for those with kids, though me personally I had a lot of fun putting it together during a live stream and trying to pick up chips and dipping them in my chip dip.

The UFOs contained:

  • Six 10ml Syringes
  • Approx 4 1/2 feet of tubing

* NOTE: The 3D Printed parts were designed for 5ml syringes, however if you print the parts at 120% they fit the 10ml syringes perfectly.

** NOTE: The pins/pin holes are noted on the thingiverse page to need some adjustments. I personally took a soldering iron and made the holes bigger. Additionally, the sliders in the "remote" need some sanding down.
