The 3D printed robot hand

Posted on Updated on

The 3D printed robot hand, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge. It has soft and rigid materials together to replicate all the bones and ligaments.

According to Ph.D. student Josie Hughes from Cambridge’s Department of Engineering, “We can use passivity to achieve a wide range of movement in robots- walking, swimming or flying, for example, Smart mechanical design enables us to achieve the maximum range of movement with minimal control costs. We wanted to see just how much movement we could get with mechanics alone”. She is the paper’s first author.
