I'm a 16 year old student currently studying chemistry, biology, physics and maths in NW London.

It may sound absurd, but over the summer I would like to make a robotic exoskeleton arm more than anything but have very little knowledge about software and wanted help and guidance as to how to go about doing it, many thanks!

Doesn't sound absurd at all Sounds fun

I've been planning to build a robot droid for a few months now. I havent actually done anything but its here in my head. I will get round to it.

I have never looked at building something like an exoskeleton arm but i shall just say what comes to mind.

You are going to need something to control the motors etc so there will be some form of computer powering things behind the scenes. = Raspberry Pi? Arduino? Small and relatively cheap, ideal for a little project.

You mentioned you have little idea when it comes to software, that's fine, this will be a fun project to learn hardware and software skills. If you use a raspberry pi you will probably want to use Python to make software to interact with the motors etc.

So thats my thoughts. I would invest a little time into reading up on Raspberry Pis, they may be ideal They also have a wide range of accessories like motors, bread boards and such in starter kits

Let me know how it goes

learn some basic electronics and programming before you think about a project like that.

As the above poster just mentioned:

Have a look at getting a Raspberry Pi and electronics starter kit. Have a play around with that first and go from there
