This instructable will teach you how to make a robotic hand with metal.

What you will need:

5" x7" Aluminum

Permanent marker

Scissors

Step 1: Finger Pieces

Trace similar pieces like the pictures on to the Aluminum 9x and cut them out.

Then bend the piece like the pictures.

Step 2: The Finger Tips

Trace similar pieces like pictures 5x then cut them out.

Bend pieces like pictures.

Step 3: Thum Guard

Trace piece similar to pictures then cut out and bend.

Optional: Glue pieces to glove and attach wires.

Step 4: Placement

Put the thum guard on first. One finger piece goes on the thum and two on the others. Put the finger tips on last.

<p>Do the edges of the aluminum poke you at all? I'd be tempted to rubberize the inside edges or pad them.</p>
<p>I'd recommend filing the edges of the aluminum before attempting to bend. You should check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N-3Z1O_EvE . Its a good tutorial on beginner level armoring.</p>
<p>Cool design, must be fun to run around with a robot hand. Thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>Thanks </p>
<p>I did cut myself a few times in the process, so I decided to cut the pieces a little bigger so I could bend the edges inwards so it would be rounded and not sharp. </p>
