While I was designing this mad gadget, I had in my mind a desire to create something with a really crazy mechanical sci-fi look that I could attach to my arm, that could grab objects and maybe crush them. :)

As always, excellent work! There’s certainly some inspiration from Alien’s Power Suit? Excellent writeup too!
MY Goodness! I salute you after seeing how you made the arm from scratch with PVC pipes! Flawless!

Thank you very much! I had a lot of inspirations in mind… probably the Power Suit too. But what I really had in mind was Fallout’s Power Fist (despite never having played the game).

Thank you very much! I was thinking “I need to build something really cool with PVC pipes”… the whole project started there.
Great project, great video, great explanation.
I wish everyone knew how to “share” projects so well with such great presentation, including myself.
Thank you very much, Martin!
I really put a lot of effort into producing the video… so I’m really happy with your recognition!
