Very nice, how are you going to trigger the fingers? Lots of space within the hand for something. Would love to do design work like this for a job, would be so rewarding.

@Steve_Wagg ​ The fingers are triggered by flexing the wrist. I would like to do this as a job too, instead it’s just a hobby :wink:

Have you seen this - http://get.google.com/disabilitiesimpactchallenge/#the-opportunity I’m assuming the tendons are slightly elasticated preventing damage to the hand / object on use?
