    hey guys, need some help here. I'm looking for a battery operated toy that has some sort of controlled "arm" movement. Sort of like a scissor movement or jumping jacks. It just has to move along one axis (up and down, front and back) but also have a controllable angle so that I hit a button I can raise the arm and another to lower it. I really hope I'm making sense.

    Anyone have any ideas? I need it for a project I'm working on. Once it's done I'll have pictures to show off the goodness.

    thanks buzz, I was hoping for something a BIT smaller though, but I might be able to use that now that I've had a second look.

    I need the mechanism to fit into a space about the size of the original Nintendo DS.

    Woohoo! looks like I can get exactly what I needed from an old CD-Rom I had laying around. Ah, the benefits of being a complete packrat ^_^

    Ahh the robotic arm. Takes 2 hours to pick up something it would take you 2 seconds to do with your hand..
