The Gripper Kit adds pick-up and carry capability to the Boe-Bot. The kit features parallel plates that can open up, clamp onto objects, then lift them. It does this using a single servo motor which plugs into a servo port on the Boe-Bot's Board of Education. Therefore, no additional battery pack is required.
The picture shows this kit installed on a Boe-Bot. The Boe-Bot is sold separately. This kit comes as loose parts that you must assemble and attach to your Boe-Bot.
The Gripper hardware weighs less than 7 ounces, and is made of aluminum, brass and plastic. It can clamp onto objects up to 2 inches (5 cm) wide, and lift up to 4 ounces without counterweight. If you add counterweight (not included), it is possible to lift up to 14 ounces (397 grams).
