Here's a new hand that matches ISO standard 9409-1-50-4-M6.

With this you should be able to mount any robot hand off the shelf that matches.  Basically anything that natively fits on a UR5 will work.  wiring it to talk to the robot is a new thing so that'll take some effort.

Also!  Continuous Integration on the Robot Overlord App project is now a thing.  We've got auto-build, auto-test, and auto-deploy-to-nightly-builds happening.  You can check out the workflow file here:

What else... we've got a metal camshaft in the shoulder and elbow now:

We'll have metal gears for the same soon enough.  All metal means more precision and more power! 

For some reason I'm having a lot of writer's block when it comes to writing a record & playback system.  I don't know where the problem is, just that it's persisted for about two years and it's finally unavoidably the one thing directly in front of me.  Could really use some help here.
