Flexy-Hand 2 by Gyrobot #MakeTheWorld #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Steve “Gyrobot” Wood updated his e-NABLE Open Prosthetics project this past week. Check out Flexy-Hand 2 on Thingiverse. Via 3DPrint.com:

2nd iteration of the Flexy-Hand. It is now wearable so it can eat at the same table alongside Robohand and the Cyborg Beast

Extra features include :

  • Gauntlet attachment via Filaflex hinges.
  • Two length/widths of gauntlet available.
  • Sculpted palm socket.
  • Discrete internal tendon channels.
  • Adjustable tensioners.
  • Discrete glove attachment channels (or alternative “Chicago Fastener” method).
  • Left and right hand versions.
  • Scaleable.

Let’s get this out there and e-NABLE the future to be better for some people. Bring on the improvements, re-mixes and modifications.

This hand was printed on a new Witbox printer kindly donated by Recreus.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


“D is for Diode” – Circuit Playground Episode 4 is out now! CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
