So in between trying to make the uber awesome Mk3 hand, which will be out before the heat death of the universe, I’ve designed a Mechanical hand. This is intended to be simple enough that you just need to plug and screw in the servos. The movement of the servos is then transmitted to the fingers and thumb via linkages. Admittedly this is similar to several other designs, but it is unique for being 3d printed, having nearly no assembly and having removable finger tips. These removable finger tips mean that you can create new ones with space for sensors.

I’m currently waiting for the design to be built and shipped from shapeways, along with a Robot hand phone stand, and a little Atlas and globe statue.
