MeArm Pi Robot Arm

MeArm Pi is a robot arm kit from Mime Industries that's designed to get children (ages 11+) interested in engineering and programming. At its heart is the Raspberry Pi, which allow many programming languages to be used while coding the arm, which can then be controlled through the on-board joysticks.

The campaign for MeArm Pi just closed, and it crushed its crowdfunding goal. The first 1,000 MeArm Pi robot arm kits will start shipping to backers in July 2017.
