We finally had time with my son to open and assemble the OWI Robotic arm kit.
The videos are done, with some pictures.
For the moment, I published the unboxing.
All is done in french as I'm doing this with my 13 son but I can add english comments either here or in the youtube comments section.
I add here the Google Photo album with pictures taken during assembly: https://goo.gl/photos/8XyP2PgsTmWJnkxJ7
Assembly videos are coming soon, just need some polish.
update december, 12th, 2015:
proper movie montage is a long task ;)
in the meantime, the arm has not been used but yesterday, when I wanted to show it to a friend, I saw that wire slip off the connector.
I'll see what to do, but it's surprising as it has been touched with care an not often. For a "no solder" product, it's a bit embarrassing.
Edit: I finally posted the build video. The only difficulty my son had was to assemble the Led in it's suport.
The schemas were maybe a bit light on that but there was a small gap to position properly.
Everything went fine for the rest, even if my son had to run to buy D batteries as it is not usual for us at home.
We need to install the usb interface and the software to try some new things with this nice arm.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddff3QDJJao
