What is mimic?
Mimic is a collection of robots, sensors, and programming tools that are simple enough for kids but powerful enough for experts. mimicArm is the easy to build, easy to use programmable robot that grows with your ability. It's a great choice everyone, from robot novice to veteran programmer. Thanks to our intuitive manual mode children as young as 5 are able to use mimicArm immediately. Never programmed before? No problem! When you're ready, our simple yet powerful programming software gradually eases you into programming concepts and our pre-programmed experiments start simple to guide you every step of the way. The experiments incrementally increase in complexity until you're able to program using genuine C code, just like the professionals. Want to pick up delicate objects without breaking them? mimicArm can do that. Want to record and playback a dance? mimicArm can do that. Need a shop assistant to hold your soldering iron? mimicArm can do that too. Add our available accessories and even more possibilities emerge.
Why Choose mimicArm?
Our mimicArm kit is designed for easy assembly. Using the included wrench, screwdriver, and hex key you can fully assembly your mimicArm in a couple hours (younger users will need an adult’s help). The kit includes all parts, fasteners, and tools needed. No soldering or other special skills are required.
While mimicArm offers great programming opportunities, it's built in software works right out of the box. As soon as your build is finished you can start using mimicArm in MANUAL mode. Just plug the robot in and mimicArm will mimic the users movements. mimicArm’s grippers utilize patent pending Posi-Feel technology, which allow you to feel what mimicArm feels and control the gripper’s force. This not only provides intuitive feel, reducing operator frustration, but also allows the user to manipulate a variety of objects, from heavy to very fragile.
