Mk5 Electronic Hand

A project log for Eye Controlled Wheelchair!

Open source system to drive powerchairs by eye movement alone - allowing independent mobility when use of a person's hands isn't an option.

I printed my design for the Mk5 electronic hand, unfortunately the design wasn't quite as perfect as i'd hoped. There have been two sub prototypes since then to improve clearances and performance. The third one (the one with red servo arms), is good enough to use for preliminary testing, so i'll be posting it to Steve today.

The Mk5 is much harder to assemble than the Mk4, so i'm already working on an easier to build version.

I'm really keen to expand our testing team – to start getting eyedrivomatic out to the people that need it, so i've started the process of recruiting beta testers. As soon as the new electronic hand proves itself in the field, i'll produce four more systems and get them out to the new crew....
