Anyone looking to teach or learn more about robotics may be interested in a new robotic arm designed by InnoTechnix called the Maximo Robot Arm.
The Maximo robotic arm features a laser-cut acrylic body that has been specifically designed to offer the highest quality possible yet still remain affordable. Watch the video below to learn more.
Offering a 5-axis range of motion the Maximo robotic arm has taken to Kickstarter to raise the $50,000 CAD over the next 50 days also to help take the design into production. Its developers explain a little more about the inspiration and functionality of their new educational robotic arm.
Maximo is our second generation of robotic arms. Three years ago, we created MandleBot, a 5-axis aluminum robotic arm currently being used in schools, robotics clubs, summer camps and even factories. We have enjoyed sharing our passion for robotics with a lot of people and it has inspired us to now do it on a larger scale.
My team and I wanted to create a robotics experience that would be available to anyone interested in this hot and futuristic subject, whether just starting out or already quite experienced. Our goal has been to create a robot that meets our exacting quality standards while remaining affordable.
Another goal was to create a robot that could be used in schools to motivate students to learn more about science, engineering and robotics. Such a robot needs to be highly functional, configurable and visually appealing. After a full year of research, the result is Maximo. Now we need your help to make Maximo a reality.
