I shared some of my recent experiments with moldable PLA gauntlets this afternoon with Jon, Jorge, and Vinnie during the hangout and wanted to share them here too. I’ve been refining my mesh to be stronger and more functional by thickening the component webs and adding features to interface with existing robohand hinges. This album covers two sequential prototypes. The files for the latest mesh gauntlet and some tips for printing/scaling them can be found in the e-NABLE community….
Friday, October 25th @ 8pm will be the closing hangout for Make The World: Prosthetics, a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of printed prosthetics to people in need, hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Today on #3dthursday we will share about a number of exciting developments and intriguing directions from #maketheworld so far in preparation for this event.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
