My first guilty pleasure project of the shutdown, actually since Christmas. erco's been busy!
Ken CNC'ed a gorgeous gripper like this a while back, asking who'd be interested. I commented at the time that it was beautiful but not unlike these $4 Ebay grippers:
I've had a pile of these forever and finally had an hour to slam something together today. VERY rough, but you can probably see the potential. It's all just foam taped to an S3 and for its first test here, mindlessly oscillated by a servo tester. Why is it at the back, you ask? Because of the tailwheel, it would tip forward at the front.
Hopefully I get more time to play with this soon, but that's all for today. Life & real work beckon!
