    My finger prosthetic

    Lost part of my fingert a year or so ago. I came up with this as a replacement. It works realy well and I can actually use my finger again.

    Very cool! What exactly does that piece on the end do? Can you explain how it works?

    Impressive work. It looks like there's a wire of some sort that pulls the finger tip down. I would love to see a video to see how it bends.

    Hey thats nice! I could use one of those myself! I've been wanting to see about getting an X-finger or something similar for my middle finger. Do you share the STL files anywhere?
