The LittleArm, released by Slant Robotics, is a 3D-printed robot arm that anyone can play with.

The arm was invented on a weekend to just play with the Arduino. But after STEM teachers asked if it was a kit, Slant Robotics decided to turn the 3D-printed robot into an actual product. This is the first time that a 3D-printed robot arm has been make publicly available. Slant has figured out a way to create an arm that is both affordable and simple enough for the average person to use. But it is also advanced enough that skilled makers and researchers can use the arm as well.

This 3D-printed robot can be programmed using tools ranging from standard code to Blockly. But if you have no computer skills at all, a simple desktop software lets you program the robot to perform simple actions just by moving it through different positions.

The LittleArm is a 3D-printed robot that seems to have a lot of potential.
