OpenBionics Hands

OpenΒionics is an open-source initiative for the development of affordable, light-weight, modular, adaptive robot hands and prosthetic devices, that can be easily reproduced using off-the-shelf materials. Our robot hands cost less than 100$ and weigh less than 200 gr while our new anthropomorphic prosthetic hands cost less than 200$ and weigh less than 300 gr.
