Prosthetic hands and limbs are changing how people that lose one of these limbs live. They are able to do more things than they could have without this technology. In this lesson, you will create a very simple robotic hand, which will be a good starting point for understanding what can be created using modern technology. You should be able to pick up some simple objects with your simple hand; prosthetic hands given to patients who have lost their hand are able to do everything a natural hand can do.
