“The OpenBionics project is focused on developing an open-source, light-weight, modular prosthetic device. They have come up with a unique hand that is inexpensive, light-weight, and can be reproduced with fairly inexpensive tools like a consumer-grade 3D printer. This innovative project will have a major impact on people in need a of prosthetics, and is a promising design for use in robotics. It was recognized as 2nd Prize winner in the 2015 Hackaday Prize. This talk on OpenBionics was presented by Minas Liarokapis at the 2015 Hackaday SuperConference.”
