Get Your Puzzle Fix: Robot Arm

We have been creating all kinds of things with robot arms for around sixty years now. MOTAT’s collection include a hydraulic robot arm called the ARB IRB6. The IRB6 is pictured in the puzzle below that was designed to weld interior linings inside aircraft engines.

Quick Fact:

In approximately 1495 Leonardo da Vinci designed variations of robot arms. In order to create robots da Vinci used a combination of plaster and external crank arrangements to create his robots.

How to play:

Use your mouse and left click on any piece on the board, and the piece will follow your mouse. To release a piece, just click again and the piece will stay put. A puzzle piece will snap and stay in position with a piece it belongs to, so keep assembling pieces and you will have completed puzzle in no time. Best of Luck!

Hint: Below is the image for the jigsaw, you can use it as a guide for assembling the puzzle.
