For the last few weeks, our engineers have been hard at work, intricately connecting tiny wires. Their efforts have finally paid off.

Our 3D printed robot hand: IT'S ALIVE!

In this video, we demonstrate the hand detecting and closing around an object with its built-in demo. Each finger moves independently until a predetermined force threshold is reached. The hand will remain closed while the object is detected. The hand will open if the object is taken out or the respective command is given.

This video includes a demonstration of the hand detecting an object and closing around it, all using ROS. Each finger moves independently until a predetermined force threshold is reached. On the screen we can the object detection part of the demo. The hand will remain closed while the object is detected and will open if the object is removed or the respective command is given.

In this video, we demonstrate the object detection. Since the hand is not attached to an arm, we simulate contact with light touches on the fingers. When contact occurs, ROS outputs a message to the screen.


Now the forearm just needs to be attached to an arm... and a body.
