MakerBot and Robohand — 3D Printing Mechanical Hands (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:

MORE INFORMATION MAKE A ROBOHAND SUPPORT ROBOHAND When Richard Van As, a woodworker in South Africa, decided to make a set of mechanical fingers, it wasn't just for fun. He'd lost four of the fingers on his right hand in an unfortunate work accident. For a carpenter, a disabled hand is a big professional risk, so Richard decided on the day of the incident that he would use the tools available to him to remedy his situation. Watch the inspiring video above to hear how Richard's project, Robohand, is changing lives with patience, spirit, and a MakerBot Replicator 2.
