Robotic Arm MK1
An entry for the Technic Creation Category for the 2011 Bio-Thon from Team T.A.N.
About this creation
This is my first Mechanical Creation, so it isn't perfect.
But I may be getting Mindstormz for my Birthday, so expect a Revamp...eventually...


I really like how this entry came out.



It basically started out with this swivel base, coutesy of this crank.




Then there are two wheels that control the arm and the claw.




The smaller wheel is connected to a pole...




...which props the arm up or down.




The larger wheel controls the claw (insert Toy Story joke here...).




Both the upper AND lower bits move together! :D



BARON's Notes:

This was a great build, but there are some MAJOR flaws...it has very limited mobility, no tension power, and falls over quite a bit...But it's only a MK1 so, it will get better. I garunteee it.



Well! Hope you like it!

Score=4/5 And yes, I do beleive this counts. The category is TECHNIC after all :P And plus, when there was the Toa Mata, they had technic on their canisters.

In response to your comment to Steve the squid, I'd like to rebut on his behalf. Sure, your other entries may be better than his (I'm his teammate and I think that Toa is a poor reflection on his skills). On the other hand, this creation is by no means a Bionicle and so shouldn't get a place in the bio-thon. It's a great piece of machinery, just not a Bionicle, and it's rather dishonorable of you to proclaim it as such and enter it into a Bionicle contest. It's further unbecoming of you to troll, like you did in your most recent comment. If I were you, I would ask the judges to nullify this entry, and build a fusion of technic and Bionicle as was intended by the category, to demonstrate your building skills and that you're a good sport.

Quoting Steve The Squid umm... am I missing something here? This is not a bionicle, or anything that resembles a bionicle. I am a bit hurt that this, which is not anything remotely bionicle, got almost double the score of my entry, which at least looks like a bionicle. I feel that this is a bit unfair, as I am actually making a bipedal, functioning robot for the technic entry. I don't think the scores here are just.
The Category is Technic Creation; this Robotic Arm I've made counts. Bioncile is a completely different theme from Technic. Technic was made before Bionicle, and actually led to it's creation. The only difference between Technic and Bionicle when it first came out (2001) was the addition of Ball Joints (and the obvious custom parts...). And why don't you check out my other entries? They're pure Bionicle and still got a higher score than yours. Sorry mate, admit defeat at the hands of BARON VON BEN!!!! MUHAHAHA!!

Nice, but isn't this supposed to be a Bionicle Technic creation? I wonder what the judges think of that...

Well done! I hope you get mindstorms! I got the chance to use them at school, and they are very fun, once you learn the programming.
