Early prototypes were built around a glove, with all the control electronics clumsily housed wth it. Once the designs were proven, focus quickly shifted to aesthetics and operation. Source: Unlimited Tomorrow
When Easton LaChappelle of Unlimited Tomorrow started working to build his first prosthetic hand, he was still in his teens. Six years later, he has gone from early prototypes to a refined product. LaChappelle’s goal now is to develop working robotic prosthetics that can be manufactured in such a way as to lower costs dramatically. Having the right motion components is, of course, key to his design.
