    Did you make instructions for it?

    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 you cant pick up a cup...or a smallish object....

    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 -.-

    you can dress up like charmander, doesn't mean you'll be able to breathe flame.

    you dress up as a cyborg, doesn't mean your going to operate like a well built cyborg. or shoot rockets fists -.- lmao

    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 "HOW-TO show and tell"

    you dont have to make another.. you can add onto this one.

    'tis how you get page hits, and get people copying you; mockery is the highest form of flattery

    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.
