Humanoid robotic hand Mk2 by Gray Eldritch Studios


Skip to comments

Hey all! just wanted to show off my finished robotic hand design! Designed entirely from scratch, including DIY linear actuators using standard servos. Powered by arduino and programmed using synthiam/ez-robot software! Thank you for continuing to develop such great software for us inventors to use in our projects!

That would be awesome!:) Funny you should mention the inmoov, I actually built one too (powered by an EZB-4) and I am a huge fan of Gael's amazing design! So that was part of the inspiration behind deigning my own separate robot arm, which was more focused on precision/mechanical parts and adding as much motion as I could, plus the hand is all self contained leaving the forearm free to house all the electronics.

Nice! Love your 3rd hand version. 

Just wondering why you lost the 4th finger? I'm really interested in your thoughts here.

I think the hand is spectacular.  more information about the servos would be great.  having built two inmoov robots I am always trying new upgrades for my inmoov .  and theTechmonanC3r more information on your inmoov would be most helpful you should start your own thread under Robots.
Can you show me the technical drawing?

The arms length is very interesting on your Inmoov ,I am interested what servos you use to lift all that weight?

Dave Schulpius- Thank you! Basically what it comes down to is, I was designing a robot hand not a human hand. Removing a finger just allowed for a more efficient design, remove weight while using fewer (while using stronger) motors, and allowing for a fully modular and ambidextrous design (no need to mirror parts, the whole design is symmetrical minus the thumb actuator.) design! I'll explain it fully in the next video!:)

Nallycat - Will do! I've been meaning to share more about my inmoov project on here, as it is also synthiam /EZB powered. However the hand in this thread is my own separate project, which was meant to challenge myself and is 100% my own design, that being said,  it's (at this moment) not inmoov compatible or intended to be. However it does use the same size servos (such as an mg996r, ezb servo, or similar size) as a standard inmoov build.:)

joinny- Right now I am not sure how I want to release this project to the public, it will be available to everyone at this early development point, but right now since it is my own original design I am working through the whole copyright process before either releasing it open source or as an educational kit.:) Im sure there will be an open source version available soon though, so stay tuned;) *hint*

Robo Rad- I am a little confused as to what you're asking, so I hope I'm understanding, the hand in this project is completely separate from the inmoov and is sort of its own project, and at this moment aren't compatible (maybe someday though! I was just responding to DJ's comment). My inmoov's forearms are Gael's original design and use the same servos, however I have made my own custom hands and Aerius' elbow re-design, if you're interested I'll totally post more about my inmoov on here soon like Nallycat suggested!:) Ive also made a few custom inmoov parts, I'll be sure to release the stl files here!:)
