i made this in October for Halloween i lost my award for best costume in the robot catagory but heres my hand
Did you make instructions for it?
Looks cool! What are the fingers made of?
so cool !!!
I think it is pretty cool! I'm trying to design something much like that, but not an extended arm... more like a larger hand over my own hand, get it?
but it looks like it doesn't move very well...like you cant pick up a cup...or a smallish object....
i was able to grasp a basketball...
but i mean something smaller, its way cool and all but say you go to grab your phone, it will fall...being smart you wouldnt grab ur phone but somthing smaller than a basketball
dude, its a freaking costume prop -.-<br><br>you can dress up like charmander, doesn't mean you'll be able to breathe flame.<br><br>you dress up as a cyborg, doesn't mean your going to operate like a well built cyborg. or shoot rockets fists -.- lmao<br><br>use your imagination ;p
it would be a good idea to umm... SHOW how you made it, since this is INSTRUCTABLES and not "Look What I Did", ya kno? id like to make something like this, but you dont show how, and theres the issue of making the 'fingers' stay straight once you release the ropes
its actual very easy compared to how it may look hard and lol if u read the Instructables slogan its worlds biggest diy how to and show and tell lol search up animatronics cause unfortunately iam not in the mood to make another one i don't have the time
specifically &quot;<strong>HOW-TO</strong> show and tell&quot; <br/><br/>you dont have to make another.. you can add onto this one.<br/><br/>'tis how you get page hits, and get people copying you; mockery is the highest form of flattery<br/>
I think the word you're looking for is &quot;mimickery&quot;...
it is sorta showing you how, self explanitory, if ya know what i mean, the pics are good enough, and you can understans them pretty well
hey thats looks kinda like knightmeres arm form soul calaber
hmmm... like this idea. maybe a part of me halloween costume maybe? btw yours isa bit tacky with the tape and stuff.
o the tape was apart of my costume ;p pritty mucht the only thing i used the hand for after i made it ;p
I'm trying to make something like this - what did you use for the finger hinges? I'm sort of drawing a blank on what would be effective.
the tube is the hinge... just cut the tube in a v shape (dont go all the way though)
Ah, I see. I guess the mistake I made was trying to use PVC pipe. It's not very flexible, you see. I'll try fitting it with a more bendy tube.
Hehe - that third picture really shows the scale well. Looks great! What's the range of motion on the fingers - can you make a fist, pick up objects with thumb and fingers, etc? By the way, you may want to flip the images around so #3 is first - that way it'll show up as the thumbnail for your slideshow.
lol thanks and thanks for the info yes I can pick things up I can also give ppl the finger the only problem is the thumb I hade the rope coming in a on a bad angle so its hardy to work same with the pinky
<em>Sweet</em>. How did you make it?<br/>
yes the great gorillaz minko commented me lol jk umm I used a tube of pvc piping cut ouit a small area for my arm then I found some tubing for an eragation system cut diamond shapes out to allow it to bend on every finger then tied ropes to the tips of each finger and made a look at the end of it so i can pull it with my fingers and thats all i can remeber i made it in october 2007
