Inspired by the Baxter robot, this 3D printed arm can be trained to move with your own hands. Once you press the train button, you will be able to move the arm and gripper as required, while the Arduino stores the positions in EEPROM. After that the arm will replay the motion as needed.

It is awesome to interact with such a robotic arm, and the overall implementation is pretty neat. You can build one of these trainable robotic arms using 3D printing to carry out some simple tasks. The files for gripper and arm are available on Thingiverse.

Update for smoother servo motion during the replay.

SO happy to see news related to 3d printing that isn't just another gold rush 3d printer attempt. This is really cool. Iron man helper robots!
