This robotic hand is built with Megabloks (micro). On the inside, I have five servos curling the fingers. The servos are connected to an Arduino nano chipset that is wirelessly driven by a second nano chipset on board the glove via NRF Modules on each end. Five flex sensors 4.5 inches long are attached to the glove fingers. Also inside the robot hand is a neopixel ring and neopixel lights in the fingertips. The system is coded in C++.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
