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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
