One of the largest robotic group, YouBionic’s goal is to create a robotic hand with a working in a 3D printed, as this robot can be used for a wide range of purposes which includes the missing and partially functional limbs, helping the people with missing, and also acts as a final actuator for the robotics arm. The facts that is largely 3D printed also means that it would be widely accessible to a large number of people.
“What can be seen in the video is the device created from the components which have returned the best results,” Italian engineer Federico Ciccarese, the creator of YouBionic, told Digital Trends. “These are the components which have finally made me proud, that I think will form the basis of what we do in the future.”
The YouBionic robot hand is capable of performing realistic motions on a level of fine grain detail that is similar to that of a human as compared with the robots which has been built previously, this latest version boasts superior design and construction of the arm, and on the hand other giving it more natural multi rotational wrist movement, elbow flexion and hand twisting as well. It is also capable to increase the strength which allows you to interact with the outside world with more like a biological hand.
The robotic hand can either be controlled with the help of a preprogrammed movement which could also be triggered up by the mirror movements of a people actual hand and arm. According to a professor of Cambridge University Ciccarese, said that there is currently exploring ways that it could even be made to a function based on the possibility of electrical activities which is recorded with the help of a person’s brain.
“Our aim is to create devices that help or replace parts of our body,” Ciccarese continued. “We only want to evolve humanity with the help of a latest technology in mechatronics. Imagine a completely robotic being that can be consciously controlled by a biological brain. That is what we are creating.”
