Give Yourself a Hand with This Wooden Robot Hand Kit

by Paul Strauss

Sometimes things are just a little too far away for you to reach with your monkey paws. While you could just move your lazy butt off of the couch, you could also just use one of those reacher claws you sometimes see old people using. Or if you’re one of the cool kids, you get a robot hand to do the reaching for you.

This unique kit from Wood Trick gives you all the parts you need to make a working robot hand. It straps onto your hand, and extends your reach using a second set of fingers that are about a foot away from your actual hand. As you manipulate its levers, you can use the robot hand to grab things. Its fully-articulated fingers move just like yours, and can be used not only for picking up small objects, but for shaking hands with both human hands and other robot hands.

The 199-piece kit looks like it’s not too difficult to assemble, with an estimated build time of 4 to 5 hours. No glue is required, though you’ll need to apply wax to its gears to keep them moving smoothly. You can grab your own wooden robot hand kit over on Amazon for $49.90.
