I was browsing through YouTube today and found an interesting project video from Mohammad Alshawabkeh & Ahmad Alameer of the University of Jordan Department of Mechatronics Engineering.

 

They have created a robotic hand powered by an Arduino Mega and the Simulink Support Package for Arduino Hardware. The robotic contraption uses 5 servo motors and 5 flex sensors to identify the position of the fingers. Seems like a really great project. Check out the video below to see the robotic hand in action. If you have any cool projects as well share them with us. More ideas for makers to try at home.
