Camera Positional Robotic Arm

Education icon, disabled. A purple mortarboard.

The purpose of this project is to create a robotic manipulating arm to accurately position cameras at angles that are specified by the user. This arm will be made in a similar fashion to those already in the market, which are able to position themselves with a 360 degree freedom of movement. However, these types of arms are not specifically designed to be used in professional photography. This arm will be created to allow for it to precisely position a camera in ways that cannot be done using conventional photography tools.
