Ir ArmBot by Christian Vlaskowits

The Ir Armbot is a simple robot arm driven by 2 standard servos
but controlled by an ir remote , sending serial information via
an ir diod to a reciever that uses a stamp 1 to decode the signal. 
The code generator is also an stamp 1 , built in the remote. 

It took me about 48 hours for both hardware and software the
armbot + remote costs approximately $120. 

Used parts :

2 9V batteries 
1 6V batterie pack for the servos 
3 switches 
6 buttons , but 4 for the moment 
1 stamp1 microcomputer 
2 hitec servos HS300
2 small plastic boxes
1 Gripper 
1 ir diod 
1 ir reciever sharp GP1U5
