Cheap Robot DIY Hand
I'm calling this one done. In the end it came out nicely I think:
PC webcam image monitored by program written in RobotSee. The image is processed and the appropriate subroutine is called upon recognition. The RobotSee program then outputs to the ColdFire uC to control five servos on a toy robotic hand to mimic the webcam image.

First test of our $6 toy hand with five Micro Servo 9Gs added. The five servos are used to manipulate each finger. Servo positions are controlled via PICAXE micro-controller. Pretty simple and basic right now, but I would like to use this as a platform for understand interrupts (tap a switch 'x' times to call a subroutine) and LCD display interfacing (display the gesture on the LCD). Next steps are to clean up the wiring, remove the dev board, and possible add a wrist position servo.
