Title: Robot Fingers
Post by: RoboEd on March 24, 2015, 04:15:16 AM
I am attempting to build my first robot and have gone for a roboti arm so that I can learn about motors.  One thing I would like is to have fingers where each section bends at the same rate for realism. Would it be possible for this to be controlled from just one motor where the knuckle would be on the human hand? Or would I need a separate motor at each joint of the finger?  Any help would be very much appreciated!

 ;D Hello!
There was a person in the forum that started to build a robot hand,
actuated by muscle wires, (nitrinol(?)). Another option,  ;) Consider cables in the hand controlled by one motor, or several. Keep me posted.. ;D ;D
