Building the MeArm Robotic Arm for Arduino, Pi & microbit
Ben delivers a video walkthrough of building the MeArm robotic arm for Arduino, RaspberryPi and microbit. See every step of the assembly up close. If you've never tackled this build before, this walkthrough will be invaluable. Building the MeArm -arduino-pi-microbit-main-1000 The MeArm is a flatpack robot arm that you can build with nothing but a screwdriver and enthusiasm. Here we demonstrate building the Arduino compatible version, but the physical build is the same for the RaspberryPi and microbit version.  

Building the MeArm Robotic Arm for Arduino, Pi & microbit:

The MeArm Robot Arm has been designed from the ground up to be easy to assemble. Children can build it themselves and we suspect adults may be able to build it unaided too. The only tool you'll need to build it is a hex key, and one is included in the box! You'll notice that Ben occasionally cheats with power tools, but this was just to make the video a little shorter.

Hello, I just received my MeArm Pi, but these instructions do not suit the version that I have bought. I have plugged in the servos to calibrate them, but on powering up the HAT board I get no movement in the servos. The LED does not light up and have tried three different power sources to no avail. Does this HAT board have to be mated with my Raspberry Pi first and if so, what are the instructions to get this working? Thanks Peter
