Riding the wings of the award winning Robotic Arm Trainer, OWI has made robotic arm technology more affordable without compromising quality. The Robotic Arm Edge is loaded with capabilities... command the gripper to open and close, wrist motion of 120 degrees, an extensive elbow range of 300 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, base motion of 180 degrees, vertical reach of 15 inches, horizontal reach of 12.6 inches, and lifting capacity of 100g. WOW! Some of the added features include a search light design on the gripper and a safety gear audible indicator is included on all five gear boxes to prevent any potential injury or gear breakage during operation. How does this equate to fun? Total command and visual manipulation using the 5s: five switch wired controller, five motors, and five joints. Night time play is possible and extended life on the gearbox to prolong your control and predictions of the robots behavior. Requires 4 D-size batteries (not included). This is an intermediate kit recommended for ages 9 and up.; From the Manufacturer; Command the robotic arm gripper to open and close, radial wrist motion of 120 Degree, an extensive elbow range of motion of 300 Degree, base rotation of 270 Degree, base motion of 180 Degree, vertical reach of 15 inches, horizontal reach of 12.6 inches and lifting capacity of 100g. Some of the added features include a search light design on the gripper and an audible safety gear indicator is included on all 5 gear boxes to prevent potential injury or gear breakage during operation. Total command and visual manipulation using the "5's", five-switch wired controller, 5 motors, 5 gear boxes, and 5 joints. For ages 10 and up. Add USB Interface cable and Software, OWI-535USB, (not included) to integrate programming and expand the capabilities of the Robotic Arm Edge.

The upside is that by putting in the gear trains and seeing how the circuit board fits in and is wired up, this kit will give a child some insight into how modern day robots work. The robotic arm also shows how the operation of small DC electric servos can be assembled to do more complex tasks. Despite the tedious assembly time, the kit is actually fairly educational.
Overall, I give this kit 3.5 stars. It took my small son and I about nine hours to carefully assemble everything. There is even an optional kit (OWI USB kit) at Amazon that you can connect to your computer that will allow you to custom program the arm (with say a command loop, like is used in manufacturing). This can be a great example to introduce a real world programming project to a small child. Overall, I am glad I finished this robotic arm with my small son but it is not something I would recommend to many families or those that lack patience.
I completed the build myself because my son is 4 years old. Four is too young to complete this build. But four is the perfect age for introductory robotics lessons. I handed it to my son and he has been completing rudimentary tasks with it since: (1) how many lego men can you pick up and place in the bowl on the other side; (2) what is the heaviest object you can pick up with the claw; (3) can you operate two motors simultaneously to complete a task.
It's super fun. My son's world got a little bigger today. Invest the time. There is hardly any cost here.
He meticulously laid out all of the parts and screws and gathered up the tools he would need before beginning to build. He watched several YouTube videos to both inform his purchase and learn more about the robotic arm and general information about building.
He successfully built the arm although part of the base of the arm is a tad loose (I attributed this to using screws that were too short). Since there is a cover plate that holds the entire base together, the overall function of the arm isn’t hindered by this.
My son has had a good time trying to lift things with the arm although it doesn’t lift mass amounts of weight. As a parent, I was most impressed at his ability to stick with this project through to the end (even with the oversight with the screws). He’s proud of his finished product and has not only a display piece, but something functional that he built himself to show for his efforts.
I would recommend this item for anyone interested in robotics. It’s a good entry level project, as all of the steps are laid out for you to follow. Just make sure you sort out the screws before you start building :)
its like lego, but on a new level
would recommend this for kids or anyone who is into tinkering and robotics
manual is confusing
there is no failsafe, when you move any of the joints past their angle limit they keep going and the gearbox/motor starts breaking
uses batteries instead of a USB port or power adapter
to change batteries you have to remove several screws and disassemble a part of the robot (wth?)
remote buttons are hard to press
the motors are pretty loud
movement is a little slow
