When it comes to maths, the robotic arm layer is the most interesting part of BluffTitler. For me personally, bringing the robotic arms to life is the most challenging maths project I've ever worked on. It also has interesting links with biology and the search for extraterrestrial life. Animals move to find food and to avoid becoming someone else's food. So we can be confident alien life will have found a way to move as well. Maybe similar to the way we move... or in a very different way! This little tech demo presents 6 ways robotic arms can move. By themselves or by cooperating with other arms.

Robotic arm is a very powerful layer thanks among other things to its super forward/reverse kinematics function. On the other hand it is a pity that we can not attach a Container to a specific joint of the arm as with a rigged animated model, it would dress the arm to our liking. Michiel, I know you're always being asked for more but do you think it will be possible in the future? Thank you

Thanks for the update.
Does this enhancement come automatically with the next upgrade for those with Robot Arm Bixpack?

Thanks Michiel, I do have Robotic Arm Pak #43. What I meant to ask is do I need to download the pack again to have the 6 extra styles or does it come with the Bluff upgrade?

Lightads, there are no extra styles. This video tries to be creative with the existing features. Your comment proves it succeeded. Thank you 😊

Vincent, thank you for your request. Maybe we can use the MODEL JOINT prop of the container layer for this.
