Custom Entertainment Solutions Introduces New Mecha X Robotic Hand

Robotic hands are everywhere! Custom Entertainment Solutions has designed and built over 10 variations of robotic hands for clients world-wide for more than a decade. Every client, from Intel to Johns Hopkins University to a team of engineering students in Tunisia needs something slightly different. Extraordinarily complex and maintenance heavy robotic research hands can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $115,000 USD! Most cannot afford such an investment, and most do not need all that complexity. Some “makers” turn to completely 3D printed hands made of plastic as they are extremely cheap and fun. Unfortunately, printed plastic parts do not have the strength of real, solid aluminum parts. SO…why not have both?

Mecha X Hands provide the simplicity and durability of a fully CNC machined anodized aluminum frame and parts with the flexibility to expand – using your own creativity – the functionality of the hand by 3D printing your own add-on components. Need foam fingertips with pressure sensors? No problem, just add it to the Mecha X hand. How about adding more flash to your animatronic display by using ultra bright LEDs to light up your hand? 3D print your own parts, add them on, and you have a reliable hand that is customized exactly how you like it.

For example, team “Night’s Watch”, comprised of computer science engineering students in Tunisia, participated in “The Microsoft Imagine Cup 2016”. They needed a prosthetic hand but could not afford the traditional prosthetic hand investment. 3D printing the entire structure was not a good solution as this hand needed to be strong and lightweight. They also wanted to customize the hand to take inputs from a “Myo” arm band. They succeeded in controlling the Mecha X Hand from an amputee’s forearm and won the competition!
