Hopefully his next model won’t cost 1800 euros.

If this increases quality and availability and decreases the cost for those who really need prosthetics, I like it.


#6

And I thought nail trimming was a chore now!

In other news, this is neat and all, but still a long way from waldoes.

Wake me when the fingers terminate in atomic force microscopes.

Pretty great, I guess.
However, they appear to only have the grip strength of those two fingers.
How’s a person gonna’ open jars.

Not enough hands

Seems like a good opportunity to remind folks about e-NABLED 3D printed hands for kids :slight_smile:

Seems like the e-nable community is still going strong.

Waiters around the world who cater to large tables rejoice…

So gross. And hilarious.

I watched that video from beginning to end and didn’t see the robohands pick up anything. I suspect they’re both flimsy and not particularly dexterous

Guess this would help picking up leaves every fall? oh wait…
