Heathkit Hero 1 Gripper by Swindon-Hackspace Mar 30, 2013

Description

Firstly, thanks to [Gyrobot](http://www.thingiverse.com/Gyrobot/overview) 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.

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/Broadban...

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.

What a blast from the past!
