S.R.A Scientific Robotic Arm

Mentors: Erick Kristantio & Kenneth Sim

Ashton likes to draw and create stuff, usually out of cardboard and things that he finds in shopping malls or near his home. The Lighthouse Programme has given him an opportunity to bring his creativity to another level, and he hopes to share his passion with the world and make it a better place.

The Project

I want to make a robotic arm to help scientists with their research and experimentation. This is a non-electronic robotic arm and can be used for different functions, such as helping others pick things up; and in this case, the elderly to help them prevent backaches.
