A low-cost robotic hand (tutorial) mirroring your own fingers

Zoe RomanoJuly 17th, 2014


Marco Pucci shared on our Facebook Page a link to the tutorial he made for a low-cost Robotic Hand able to mirror the movement of our own hand. He created it  in the laboratory of new technology of Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (“Academy of fine arts of Brera”), a state-run public academy in Milan, Italy.


The hand works with flex sensors attached to the glove’s fingers, they are analysed by an Arduino which then moves servo motors connected to threads attached to the robotic hand.

You can follow the tutorial (in italian, but you can use google translate) on this page , download a zip with all the sketches, and watch a demo video below:
