Stuff I've built.

Take me back to projects.

A robotic hand controlled by computer vision + sensored glove

What are the challenges in mapping human movement to robotic movement?

For this project I wanted to explore the challenges and implications when mapping human movement to robotic movement. This project grew out of my vision of a surgeon, possibly located a continent away, using a video interface and sensored glove to control a robotic arm and perform a surgical procedure on a distant patient. I imagined a "robotic surgical arm" being deployed to different locations where it could be taken from the wall and used when needed much like the modern AED. I was responsible for the building of the robotic arm + hand. This project was built over the course of several weeks during my Physical Computing course (NYU Interactive Telecommunication Program).
