Bionic hand produced with 3D printer in 10 hours

A staff of designers and engineers efficiently produced a 3D-printed, made-to-measure bionic hand in simply 10 hours.

Specialists from analysis and training group WMG, which is a part of the U.Ok.’s College of Warwick, labored with C Enterprise and Printed Electronics to design and print the bionic hand with inbuilt sensors.

The bionic hand is the results of the IMPACT Undertaking, which is led by Iterate Design and Innovation.
