Build a Hand From Zip Ties, Cardboard, and Fishing Line.





Introduction: Build a Hand From Zip Ties, Cardboard, and Fishing Line.

Hello Instructables Community! This is a prototype build of a hand made from cheap common materials. The end goal is to make an animatronic hand that can fingerspell ASL.

This is a near complete start to finish build with video in three parts. It might be best to listen to the intro and watch the rest at a high speed playback rate. This is my first instructable and I have learned a lot.

Thanks for watching

    It's a bit dumbed down but this is about a hand made explore more of this website and you could find a bit of inspiration from it!!!

    Your comment to me in April just reminded me of a website that I found it makes a hand thing using string and straws!!! Shall find the link then send it to this comment section

    Thanks for the vote, follow and favorite!

    It looks like a fun project. You might be able to fit a thumb in using something to redirect the direction of the pull for the thumb from the side to down like the rest of the fingers. My computer doesn't want to play your voice very loud, have you considered doing this again with photos instead of video? It would also make it easier to save for future reference. Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm working on improving the presentation before submitting more instructables. Photos and overdubbing for the video sound like a good idea. Don't want the delivery getting in way of the message. Thanks again

    Jaesn I am looking around this contest trying to find one to vote for, just a few more to go but so far you might win my vote
