My Soft Robotic Hand in Popular Science

I'm really excited to announce that one of my robotics projects is now in Popular Science magazine!

I met two editors from PopSci last year at NY Maker Faire, and exchanged contact info.

3-Axis Joystick with Button

I saw this joystick in a Hackaday article and I thought it looked cool. I really liked that it had a knob on the joystick.

Apparently there are two different pot choices and two different bezel choices. I thought the default 10K pots and rubber benzel were fine.
