In the 21 century, the requirement for a momentary compelling tackling of the diverse issues confronting individuals has gotten to be crucial. From this, designing and engineering issues have expanded with the use of complex methods, particularly with the massive improvement in technology. Starting here, bionics, which is an approach to take care of numerous issues by making arrangements subsequent to recognizing similitude with comparing issues showing up in nature, has been spreading. In this project, this technology will be studied and its advancement over the earlier decades will be investigated, followed by some examples to clarify bionics meaning. After that, a design motivated by this science will be accomplished. So the bionic striking arm inspired by scorpions tail will be considered keeping in mind the end goal to acquire with the motion of the scorpions tail and have imitate its action in the right way. This arm will be installed in shops to ensure the safety of shop owners from gunpoint robberies. It strikes the thief with a range of one meter in diameter standing in front of the counter. Some programming will be done for it to hit the target with the help of sensors. Finally some analysis will be made to ensure the safety of the design and that it moves in the proper way with the constraints given to the design.
