How to make a robot gripper

Well, it can grip stuff, and your robot can use it as hands!

**Watch the video!**

To make this project you will need:

  • A small blow torch or lighter
  • A glue gun
  • A Dremel or rotary tool
  • A few rotary tool bits(drill, sanding wheels and a cutting wheel)
  • A permanent marker
  • The Cutting pattern(can be found here http://kattejuice.deviantart.com/gall... )
  • A micro servo
  • 4 small nails or pins
  • A piece of Plexiglas (acryllic, 2x2 inches or 10x10cm)
  • A large paperclip
  • And some sealing tape

If you dont have a rotary tool use a drill, some sanding paper and a fine saw.

This project is very cheap too! it only costs about $10!! :D

Heres the prize list:

A micro servo                -$5 to $10 (mine was $6!)
4 small nails or pins      -FREE
A piece of Plexiglas      -$1
