Robot arm rigging

I made this model and rig for personal portfolio. It took me a few days to complete the model and about 3 hours to rig. You can control the robot arm by inverse kinematics, just by moving and rotating the target point. The gears, pistons and cables interact dynamically with the movement of the arm.

That is awesome. Are you going to make an animation with it?

Nice use of IK. The gears though... mah head esplode. You'll have to show us how you did that with everything else, (or maybe just me cause I'm probably the only person here that can't figure that out at first glance.)
