Wait that should be,... NooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo (proper entropia styley)
I guess you on Pause for the Avatars right?
At the moment I have a job as engineer for a customer. For two or three weeks. So more or less everything is frozen. But you are right: I will continue with avatars if I'm not too lazy at the evening.
Be as lazy as you like. No rush here.
Not sure whether to create an own thread, just a note...
"YouBionic is 3D-printed from nylon dust, meaning designs for the device can be downloaded online and created by anyone who owns a 3D printer."
Yep, this is really another field than my Pitbull at one hand. At the other hand it overlaps my theme: to give rein to something. Download content, print it and use it. Probably modify it before printing. We are far away from this. But we are on the right course. A 3d-printer should be as normal as a microwave to everyone's home.
The example you mentioned is very special. Probably I could print the parts. But I couldn't build all the electronics, not to speak about coding the software. And tbh I don't need such a hand so far. Not many of "normal" folks are in need of it. But they do pay a lot of money for simple replacements. What if manufacturer would offer 3d-data of replacements for low costs?
Half a year ago I printed the first full dental prostheses for my own mouth. My dentist made a stiff and aggravating one. I didn't like it. I asked a former colleague to make a 3d-scan from it and modified it with my CAD. Than I printed it with flexible material. That was already way more pleasant than the original. The dentist mentioned, it wouldn't last very long. Well, who cares? I could print a new one. Or ten of it for vacation ...
But I don't want to wear plastic parts in my mouth at all. So I canceled the project.
That would be my part, if I was equipped and motivated to pick up the hobby again. Ah, taking up the soldering iron again... can the boards be printed now? It was always a mess with the etching chemicals. Was just mentioning it here because I think this is really interesting stuff which will take us on a big leap forward, to borrow a term. Playing around with it to gather knowledge and experience is far from useless.
Well, I've checked the store of Youbionic's website:
Printing files hand: 149 Euro
10x actuator: 550 Euro
What about the sensors and the support for the single hand?
No clue if this will be functional.
But I agree with you: such things will change our life dramatically in near future.
One of the things I have permanently on my "list of fun projects to try" is to try and make a robotic hand. Starting with home made bend sensors. I've had the tutorial bookmarked forever.
Sadly this is so far down the list now... maybe when I retire or get too sick to work.
Colors and brushes arrived today.
I guess Ill start around the weekend.
I will need 20 of these cars to use up all the colors x'D
Maybe Ill start with the drone as well...but 1st Ill get deeper into deeptoken ;D
It was easy with photoshop btw. ;p
Very very cool!!
Probably we can print stamps from flexible material for the sign and the text.
