Phew the last few months have been hectic. I’ve been doing my end of satisfying the rewards, which meant printing 60 fingers and 10 hands. These weren’t the motorised sort, just the printed and assembled sort. But still they ate up months of time.

Anyway with my end all over I am glad to announce that the hands are available of shapeways.

Hands live on ShapewaysAlso some photos of the assembled fingers and hands.

There are collections of fingers on there also. I also developed a prosthetic finger, which I am looking forward to receiving feedback from.

Easton has been busy, at Nasa and giving ted talks. He will soon begin work on the electronic set of rewards. We also got the hand to be printed at stratasys, whilst Easton visited there.

We have several projects advancing at different rates. We have an upper body exoskeleton, which we are finding and designing components for. We have are on a biped robot, which I hope will share alot of techniques with the exoskeleton. We are working on more advanced hands, which are closer to being used as actual prosthetics.

I hope to add some more info and photos over the next few days.


One Response to So time for an update.

  • A really good post. This information sums up for me just what thiss topic iss focused on and some of
    the key benefits thbat can be created from knowing about it as you.
    A friend once pointed out that you have a totally different approach when you do something the
    real way as opposed to whhen you’re just simply toying with it.

    In the case of this specific topic, I believe you’re taking,
    or start to consider, a more professional in addition to thorough approach
    to what andd how you are writing, which in turn helps you to continue to get
    better and assist others who don’t know everything about
    what you have contributed here. Thank you.
