Hands are complex tools that grant humans a superpower, the power to transform imagination into reality. The power of our hands is unlimited. We can use them to throw a ball, climb a tree, or build a tool.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have two hands.
Robohand is an open source tool created to help restore the superpowers of humans who are missing the fingers from their hand. The original version was created by Richard Van As and Ivan Owen.

I printed this out, and it is looking great. I already have 3 people interested in ones to use. However almost all of the pins keep falling out and I'm not sure how to fix them. I will just hot glue them for the moment, but I was wondering if there was any way to get an editable version of the pints so I could tweak them. I am no 3d modeller but I could do enough to add a mm of fat to the ends to make them stick, or perhaps would it be possible to post the pints a lone with a bit more at the ends? Will post picture as soon as we have it together. Thanks!
Those pieces can be mounted on prosthetic plastic, or in our case, leather. The large bridges are for demonstration purposes, and the smaller ones are for making an actual prosthetic device.
