In 1988 I started work on a robot arm for Concorde Robotic who sold the Armdroid arm, formerly made by Colne Robotics. The X-500 was to be a top of the range desktop robot arm and was designed to have a 2Kg payload at 500mm reach. However some way into the project Concorde Robotic went into liquidation. I never got paid but kept the half finished prototype robot arm.
Both pictures show the arm mounted on the mobile base Victoria.
