Bio-inspired robotic finger looks, feels and works like the real thing

Most robotic parts used to today are rigid, have a limited range of motion and don’t really look lifelike. Inspired by both nature and biology, a scientist has designed a novel robotic finger that looks, feels and works like the real thing. Using shape memory alloy, a 3D CAD model of a human finger, a 3D printer and a unique thermal training technique, this robotic finger could ultimately be adapted for use as a prosthetic device, such as on a prosthetic hand. —> Read More
