Hi first ,I'm a maker,also a high school student form china.
I'd like to share my animatronic hand project.and this is my first instructable!
This project is basicly a bionics hand robot based on arduino mega 2560.The whole hand has 13 DOF which is very similar to human hand.To
achieve that ,the hand uses 7 servo motors and 6 air cylinder.The hardware was designed in 3dsmax and machining by a small CNC.The material is 5mm ABS plastic ,and if you want ,you can also use a laser cutter .In control system, air cylinders were controled by solenoid valve which connected to arduino mega .As servos. There are virous wags to control the hand .I've tired the leap motion sensor and the data glove which catches my motion via processing.Then the processing communicate with mega via Serial.Now
i'm trying to use emotiv insight EEG sensor to control it .It takes me 6 months to finish the project .And i've made 3 verson of it .
