Robotic Hand
Wednesday, August 07, 2019
I had a toy robot hand around for about 15 years, wondering what I could do with it. I knew it would join a robot someday. This was the type of toy where the user would squeeze the handle so the fingers would contract.   See photos.

Future Development: I hope to make another hand using aluminum parts for the fingers and force sensors so the hand doesn't crush things. It will eventually be part of a larger humanoid robot.

Update 3Feb16: Found a good article in Servo Magazine with ideas on how to build a hand like this from scratch, using notched nylon tubing for the fingers. Video of the hand with moving fingers is here:
