Antares - a simple LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Scorpion robot

Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpius constellation.

The robot's main purpose is to show two different grabbing mechanisms - one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical pincer uses a medium motor and the horizontal pincer uses a large motor. Additionally the robot has a sting mechanism which uses another large motor. For a head it uses an EV3 ultrasonic sensor. With the sensor, the robot can sense when the prey is close enough for a suprise attack.
