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.
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.
