Hacking the OWI robotic arm bot


Demonstrating the OWI robotic arm running automated with a Raspberry Pi and some python code.


@ Kiwi PyCon 2013 - Saturday, 07 Sep 2013 - Track 1

Audience level



After buying my son an OWI robotic arm,we decided to see if we could do more with it than use the remote controller. We quickly found you can buy a USB interface, however it only came with windows drivers. After some googling we found we could control this with python scripts which led to even more fun!
