I am currently in the process of gathering all the material i need for this project. I have been thinking about it for quite some time. have never seen this done before in the way I plan on doing this. The hands i am making will be functional as in you will be able to lift object as heavy as a chair. Open any door and so forth without removing your hands. All 4 fingers and the thumb will move independently so in essence they will be fully functional hands. Of course I have not figured out a way to move the fingers side to side so there will be limits.
I have most of the materials I need and the process will be slow until I get the prototype together. (I got a newborn so he makes it hard to get anything done).
I am still working on a way to attach the hand to my arm. (all on paper still with only a few cheap tinkerings to see if things work.
I am making a pair for myself and if they turn out well I am making them so a skin can be put on them so you can have big-foot hands, hulk hands, ect....
My question is is there a market for these if they turn out well? I am my own worst critic so unless they turn out to my ideals then I would never consider making them for someone else. But if they turn out like I want them too I would love to make them for others. Just wanted some input on weather or not people would like these or not.
