The most cost effective solution I can think of is to use potentiometers at the joints in order to gauge the angles.  You basically treat the pots like absolute analog encoders, but you will have to do some calibrations to ensure your angles are correct.  Do you need me to go into further detail?

I found an instructable to do one A LOT better It is based on the In moov 3d printed hand. (you dont need to have a 3d printer) you can use just send the files and they send you the printed parts.
