This would appear to be at least derivative number five and I'm really looking forward to the chance to go over the files of this one! The #eeArm has come to us via South Africa where it was part of a Tech Street Market project.

Looks like there have been some savings in the acrylic, which I would have thought might have weakened the structure a little, but I'm keen to see how it performs!

The finished article is a little funkier looking than our original. Really want to get one of these for the collection!

We tried to get the top body as light as possible. Works really well. This was done as part of the Fak'ugezi #MarketHack. It is controlled via wifi using an ESP8266. I will post some photos and videos.

By the way, one easy way to shave off some weight is to use acrylic bolts.
