Grabbers are handheld tools used to aid a person’s reach and pick up items. Grabbers are often mechanical, meaning they have moving parts that the user can control, but there are lots of different types of grabbers. As the name suggests, the mechanism on these designs will be used for grabbing things! In addition to creating with simple machines, building a grabber will give you a practical tool you can use around your house!
Design a device that can pick up three different objects from at least three feet away.
