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.
