Build your own animatronic hand using cardboard, straws, some cord, and rubber bands. Pull the cords to actuator fingers -- or even better, let some servo motors do it for you!
CRICKIT is the perfect platform for building your animatronics projects -- it can take commands from your Circuit Playground Express and then power your servos. You can even add lights and sound later if you like.
In addition to the parts above, you'll need:
- Corrugated cardboard from a shipping box or two
- Drinking straws
- Cord, yarn, or string
- Rubber bands
