We were inspired by Big Hero Six, particularly by the various gadgets that Hiro had built for his friends in order to save San Fransokyo from the evil super villian.
What it does
It is a remote controlled robotic claw that can grab various objects.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
On the hardware side, the servos drew too much current from the power source. Three power sources were utilized in the end in order to solve the overdrawing of current. The Li-Po power source fluctuated voltage greatly during use so we switched it out with a 5V power supply module. Technical issues occured with the kinematic equations used to move the arm. This was later resolved by bounding the output values of the servos.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Result: Arm runs smoothly with Leap Motion.
What we learned
