This 6-minute video chronicles the efforts of inventor/physicist Dean Kamen to develop a robotic arm with the functionality and dexterity of its human counterpart. "Prosthetic legs are in the 21st Century," says Kamen. "With prosthetic arms, we're in the Flintstones." The result of the project was the "Luke Arm", controlled with non-invasive measures using an interface like a joystick. This video is part of a series about advances in prosthetic arms, published by <i>Inside Technology Spectrum</i> a magazine sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

This collection for introductory physics integrates lessons, labs, practice problems, assessments, AP review exercises, simulations, and quizzes in one easily-searched location. Initial development began in 1997, with continual updating and expansion occurring since then. Of special note is the section <i>Amusing Problems</i>, consisting of real-life applications designed to make learners think <u>and</u>laugh. Each problem provides access to solutions for self-evaluation.

This tutorial provides background information on robotic arm technology and practical instructions for building your own. The author includes free-body diagrams, schematic drawings, help with performing force calculations in the joints, directions for setting torque parameters, and detailed explanations of each component in the system. For learners with little background in physics or engineering, the Robot Arm Calculator Tool determines the lifting capability of the robot arm. This resource is appropriate for courses in introductory physics or applied physics.

This lesson plan, appropriate for grades 6-9, asks students to create a robot arm from common household materials that include paper clips, fishing line, cardboard, brads, pencils, rubber bands, and twine. The final product must be at least 18 inches in length and able to pick up an empty Styrofoam cup. As learners go through the design process they must work as a team to learn about simple machines, force interaction, torque, stress, and more. This item is part of a collection of lessons and online games developed to help students think like an engineer and make decisions that apply an understanding of physics and engineering. It is part of <i>TryEngineering.org</i>, a website maintained by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
