Update: The winner of the MeArm Giveaway Random Draw is @Fidel salinas who mentioned @AFSLabs in their comment. We'll be in touch via private messaging to find out where to send the MeArms!

Commiserations to everyone else who entered. Don't forget to follow or skull the #181. #MeArm - Pocket Sized Robot Arm project, or if you are really desperate for a MeArm you can buy one over at the Hackaday Store.

Couldn't make it to Hackaday Munich? Heard about the great Robot Workshop? Well, we've got a pair of Limited Edition Hackaday Munich MeArms to giveaway to two lucky Hackaday.io members so they can experiment at home.

A big thanks to @ben.phenoptix for letting us hijack his project for a week, and for sending out the MeArms to the winners.

@Rue Mohr , I've entered us into the MeArm giveaway. Check out #181. #MeArm - Pocket Sized Robot Arm This is a prime example of an arm that is not nearly as powerful as your current design s made from junk bin parts. and a excellent example of why I insist that when the much more powerful and better designed 3d printed Rue Arm V10 system hits the interwebs your going to have to quit your day job...

Good robot projects for class are hard. They need to be small, cheap (<$50), teachable, dependable, and maintainable. Cheap is necessary because if I am going to buy one, I need to buy 30.

Well, if you take the design files and fit all the parts in a single sheet of acrylic I'm quite sure you could get them laser-cut in USA at a low price.

Hey there, I really wish I could have attended the Munich Workshop (damned business pre-holidays dinners, but at least the wine was good); moreover, I never fiddled with robots before so this looks like a good starting point :D @Bruce Land , you could really use one of these in your classes! #181. #MeArm - Pocket Sized Robot Arm

@julia.miklovi this looks like nice toy for our home

Look at #181. #MeArm - Pocket Sized Robot Arm nice, huh?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Looks like when copy-pasted from example above, and changed name to what I wanted, it didn't work - hashtag and [at]tag was inactive - just plain white text with no hyperlink. However once I started typing "@" followed by first few letters of name, it offered me names list. Once I clicked the correct name, the text went active as hyperlink. The same goes for "#" tag. When copied, it doesn't seem to workm but once I typed "#18" it offered me list of projects starting by 18 to select.

Test of Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V

Don't worry, I'll still consider it valid.

I'll PM you and we can see if we can work out why it didn't work.
