Well this project is designed for you to build your own robotic hand that can carry out basic tasks.
The reason i decided to make a robotic hand was because i was participating in a school science fair and i really wanted to show my school something that they had never seen before. This project took a couple months, several prototypes to fix all the errors and was made entirely at home. What i learnt from this project is that i should really research properly before going out and buying parts. I am really proud that the model actually worked because it is my first time doing something this complicated. However the only thing i would change would be the material used for the fingers since it bent easily and caused the hand to not be able to pick up heavy objects.
Step 1: Materials
Servomotors, Microcontroller (Arduino), Breadboard, Wires, Alligator clips, Foam board, Glove, Fishing line, Rubber tubing, fiber glass, hot glue.
Step 2: Base
Cut out two circles; a large circle and a smaller circle.
Glue everything together with hot glue and begin applying fiber glass.
Step 3: Palm
Next, cut five pieces of rubber tubing and carve out three joints as shown above.
Now use the fishing line by tying one end to the tips of the fingers.
Step 4: Joining the palm and the base
Continue coating the hand with fiberglass.
Step 5: Applying servo motors
Tie the other end of the fishing lines to it's own servo.
