The ShopArm Project was started at Slant Concepts. After determining that most of the components of modern industrial robots could be made 10x cheaper and 100x easier to use. The team at Slant decided to create the robot that could achieve all of that.
The ShopArm is an robot arm that is meant to be used by the average individual for basic automation tasks. These include helping the Maker at his workbench, in small businesses packing boxes and even helping the baker decorate cookies.
Robot arms are the most flexible tool available for performing automated work. Slant is working to make them useful for everyone.
