Make Me Some Arms Plus: New Youtube

Hey everyone!
I have been doing some more work on my DEWY project, and realized he doesn't have any arms!

I had made some arms out of Polystyrene, but they just don't match.

I want some input from you guys. Arm ideas?
The bot doesn't need grippers, though the design could have them, and must be able to hold a tray(with or without grippers) near the width of the bot. Colors are red, black, and white. I want to make the design out of insulation foam, reinforced with wood or plastic.

-Grippers not nessesary
-must be able to hold tray
-Red black white for color scheme
-will be made of foam/wood/plastic
-NEEDS TO BE CHEAP(simple 2 servo arm or similar)

Which ever one I like the best I'll use!

This is a chance for everyone to relax, and take your mind off other stuff, and help a fellow EZ-roboteer!(Is that what we call ourselves?)

Other stuff:
Everyone may know that I have a Youtube channel Technopro. This is a channel I have had for a while now. For originality, and to lighten my load with other stuff, I will be moving everything to my New channel MazeHorizon0(Yes, MAZEHORIZON0). I hope you guys will all subscribe, as it will help me out. Share around too! I won't be closing Technopro, but I will no longer post on it. Expect me to change my Profile soon!

Thanks guys! Can't wait to start this new channel, and get DEWY finished!


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!

Maybe don't worry about the arms holding the tray - instead make the tray clip onto the body somehow. That way you don't need to worry about the buzz of servos, and potential servo damage. I would still make arms - out of painted styrofoam which is lightest and will look decent. Use the arms simply for personality quality - and the tray can clip onto his chest, instead of the arms holding the tray.
@DJ Good idea!

@JustinRatliff The foam would be way lighter, and I have some hardening tricks.
I believe I have a concept arm but I'll see if I get any ideas. My concept has a bit of a futuristic look, while sticking to DEWY's rough figure.
