Crafthouse unveils “God Hand” for Melissa


Crafthouse, the makers of the Melissa robot body kit, unveiled the God Hand at Kondo’s 5th anniversary event.  This awesome add-on gives the Melissa a proportional 5-fingered hand that opens and closes, with a grip strong enough to hold a pen and other light objects.  All five fingers are driven by one servo, which uses cables attached to the servo horn to pull the fingers simultaneously.  This is easily the smallest and most elegant set of grippers you can get for a hobby-sized robot kit to date!  Insert joke about strangling humans here. Video and more after the break.
