Iowa State Spirit

What it does

Uses the Myo arm band to control a mechanical arm that could be used for various things in a stabilized state, such as;

-Surgery done back doctors in a different location -A prosthetic hand -Smash chips -Operating a construction crane(On a large scale) -Conduct a band with an out of state conductor

How we built it

Found a mechanical arm in a closet, immediately play with it Used a power supply to run power to the arm, and ground EVERYTHING together

Challenges we ran into

Finding the ranges of what angles the arm can be at without destroying the table. Arm convulsions that make the arm do very unexpected things

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Sufficiently crushing chips. Getting the servos to turn certain degrees Getting Myo Armband data from gyroscope Not crying when the mechanical arm pinched or punched us

What we learned

Arduino to servo communication Processing to Arduino communication Getting the servos to turn certain degrees Getting Myo Armband data from gyroscope

What's next for [My O]wn Arm

Taking it to large scale #cranes
