  • MeArm - The Robot Arm taking the world by storm (MEARM)
    The MeArm is a fantastic, low-cost and easy to build robotic arm with a natty little gripper. It comes complete with all the fixings and 4 servos you need to assemble it.

    All the files for the MeArm are open-source so if you fancy building one for as little money as possible, please give it a go.


    The latest version is a stable base model and that's what you see here today. It ships with all the acrylic parts you'll need as well as all of the fixings and four hobby servos.

    The most recent instructions for the #meArm are available as a pdf and at instructables.com

    Our basic testing has involved driving the servos straight from an Arduino, using a simple shield and four 10k Ohm potentiometers. The code for that can be found in the MeArm Github

    Software exists for the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black and Espruino, as the MeArm community is amazing!

    You must power the Hall effect sensors separately with 5V to the V and G inputs, the output is taken from the S1 and S2 signals

    The wires from the motor are coloured as follows
    • Black - Motor Ground
    • Red - Motor Power (7 - 12V)
    • White - Sensor Power (5V)
