How to Make an Animatronic Hand #robotics

NewImage

Fantastic instructable from bwebby:

In this Instructable I will be showing you how to make a moderately complicated Animatronic hand, using the kinds of techniques utilised by actual animatronics specialists. The system is effectively a complex puppet, with servos putting the ‘strings’ to operate the fingers. Unfortunately I could not figure out how to make the wrist move so at the moment just the fingers move.

I would like to credit http://vegard.hammerseth.com/2009/03/school-projec… as the source of visual reference for my project. I made modifications to their design to make it easier to create at home with fewer specialist tools and an easier to use servo controller.

The project took me just over six weeks of problem solving and actual making (hopefully as I have worked out most of the kinks in the process it should take anyone following this ‘Ible a shorter period of time).
