Here is another educational robot kit that allows you to experiment with robots and learn some coding. HEW can be programmed using C, C++, Python, and other languages. You can use various grippers for your projects. As you can see in the below video, HEW can be used to pick up and move objects.
HEW comes in two models: pressembled and unassembled. You can find out more about it on Kickstarter.
