Summary

Firstly, thanks to Gyrobot for designing and printing these out.

Heath Company began the HERO 1 project in October 1979. The first units were available in 1982. This is a real blast from the past and a credit to the technology available at the time. The R2D2 of its day.
This is an stl for a replacement gripper jaw on the end of the robotic arm. This gripper was printed off for the Heathkit at the Museum of Computing in Swindon.

Is it your robot? I just bought two of them, and I'm finding very little in the way of documentation. I'm planning on making a few THINGS for mine.

Hi, no it's not my Robot, it's owned by the "Museum of Computing" in Swindon, UK. However I do have access to it and the manuals. If you want to purchase any of the manuals then try : http://www.hero-1.com/Broadband/manuals.htmhttp://www.hero-1.com/Broadban...

What a blast from the past!
