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!

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!:)
UPDATE! The hand is done! Well, version 3 that is. The rotation wrist and hand are fully functional. Once the contest is over I plan to open source these designs in some form, so you all will be able to build your own:)

Such a cool clip, nice intro...good lighting and of course great work!! 
Keep it up!!:D
