Video: Arm's first day

A lot of you have been interested in seeing video of the arm in action. We dug this one out of the vault -- it was shot in early November when we were first bringing it up. As you can see, it's still mounted to the test rack and we're using a spaceball to put it through its range of motions. We've had the arm mounted to one of our PR2 alphas for several weeks now and we've been putting it through its paces -- picking up objects, dragging people around in office chairs, and turning over tables. Inspite of all the abuse, it's doing well. We'll have some more videos of it in action soon.



cheers, thanks for putting it up, it looks amazing!
