We would like to share with the robotics community our experiences with
manufacturing low-cost, safe, compliant robot hands. They are very cheap
and easy to build, so we decided to publish the manufacturing process
and also give out 10 construction kits to other labs, each containing
Each kit contains three ready-to-use fingers (PneuFlex actuators) and a
syringe for inflating (=flexing) them.
If you are interested in getting one, please visit:
and apply until March 20th, 2013.
PneuFlex actuators are easy to build and customize yourself. We created
a step-by-step tutorial of the manufacturing process:
