Arcade Claw Machine

Mon Oct 14, 2019 3:01 am

After finish building my arcade machine based on retropi, I'm now looking to do more.

Have a thought to create a claw machine where I can put in some stuffed toys, so can use at school carnivals.

Wanting to do with low cost materials, but still willing to spend money if need to get more specific items like motors, claws, joy stick controller etc....

Has anyone had experience doing this?

Where can I start?

I haven't tried it my self, and it looks a bit complicated but you might be able to get some ideas from the instructables link below (its for arduino not Pi but you should be able to port the ideas).

Thanks for that.

I did see quite a bit of online resources for the arduino....though, watching the video you attached is getting me even more motivated!
