Build A Single Servo Robot Gripper


Build a single servo robot gripper. via instructables

In this instructable I will show you step by step how to make a robotic gripper. You may be wondering: What does it do? It is basically a robotic hand that slowly closes and if something touches the switch while it is closing it stops so it grips onto the object that presses the switch.
