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.

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.
I printed and assembled all pieces but have one question. In the STL named "bridges" there are 4 extra pieces (the 4 smaller pieces) not seen in the build manual. What are they used for?
Hi Debbie, you can get this stuff printed at shapeways.com
Also, you can buy a build it yourself 3d printer kit for really cheap. The printrbot simple kit starts at $300.
