Title: Robotic Hand
Post by: icecapsule on November 23, 2017, 06:34:44 AM
Hi, I'm planning on making a robotic hand for an art exhibition. From looking online, it seems this tutorial is laid out pretty well and should be suitable for my project; However, I want the movement of the robot to be from code rather than from the glove, is this possible? The type of movement I want is pretty basic (I think!) it's just small random twitches and glitches, nothing specific. Thanks, Claire

Totally doable.  You can code a microcontroller such as Arduino to control the motors in the hands (a microcontroller is a small computer built into a single chip that serves as the "brains" of any electronics project).  Look up some arduino tutorials.
