Telepresence hand

I ran across this project undertaken by an Indonesian engineering student, Andreas Maryanto, a few years back.

He uses servo driven wires in plastic tubing sheaths to drive the hand's movements.

He made the thing out of perspex (lucite), which could be easily laser cut.  He built both sides of the rig.

His system is simple, cheap and, while not all that elegant in appearance, it appears to work quite well.
