£27 Pneumatic Prosthetic Fingers

In a group project, I conceptualised a glove system to pull artificial joints using a tape measure, nylon thread, a small balloon, narrow tubing and a pneumatic actuator from a LEGO set. The harder you grip an object, the harder the prosthetic fingers maintain firm contact. Each glove costs = £26.53
