With this robot, you control everything with your hand, even the robotic arm!
The hand gestures can be programmed differently.
Long range with Xbee communcation!

Aluminium plate – any local ironmongery
Step 2: Base Model
I made a simple drawing in SolidWorks and then went to a local ironmongery to get the plate bended.
On the base plate under the plexiplate is were the two DC motor will be placed. Over that will the 12v battery holder and the H-bridge fit. And on the top level will the Arduino be mounted. In the middle of the plate will the robotic arm be placed.
The drawing model is included.
