There are many fancy robotic arms available to businesses and educators. Most of them are not cheap though. KATIA is different. It is a trainable robot with a hackable, modular design. You can add custom actuators and logic to customize it. The robot can be used for 3D printing, camera setups, and more.
KATIA is expected to cost as much as a laptop (under $2000 or so). We should know more about it in a couple of months.
