JACO Robotic Arm Lends a Hand

KinovaArm.jpg

Kinova has developed JACO, a robotic arm that can reach almost a meter and lift up to 1.5 kg. Made of carbon fiber, it uses harmonic-gear-motors and has 6º of movement. The arm can be attached to a wheelchair, controlled by computer or joystick and is so flexible that it can hold a glass of water or pick up a flower. Don't get too excited as the JACO costs almost $48,000 from RobotShop Distribution.
