The Anthromod Mk2 hand is designed by ChrisC of Anthromod. It is a robotic hand composed by hand and the wrist/stand. The hand is 3D printed in one piece without any assembly or printed hinges needed.

It's intended to work with a bowden cable/tendon set up. So think of how a bike brake cable works. Essentially this allows me to make the fingers move without worrying about angles of the wrist. Soon I plan to sell complete kits with bowden tubes/tendons, servo's, control electronics(arduino or raspberry pi). The hand should have reduced functionality if tendons run straight from joint to servo, but the bowden cable is the neater and more functional option.


The Anthromod Mk2 hand is available on Shapeways and the price of the left and right hands is US$206.32 or 186 euros/each.
