The first one is the "Derp-Arm" this is a crane like are on a pivot. The longer half, used to lift the box to the desired height, will be made of a panto-graph while the shorter section on the other side of the pivot will be made to have adjustable weight to counter balance the load of the box.
It is currently being tested to see if the spacing and weight distribution will be correct. We hope to get a full scale prototype out in the coming days.
