BLOG > Prosthetics Research Featured on Parallax.com

Parallax, the creator of the BasicStamp microcontroller that I used on my prosthetic prototype, and the propeller chip used in the DeepNote Guitar Hero Bot, has a section on their website where they feature winning projects that have been made using their products. They’ve decided to feature my project on their site! You can go check out the Parallax “Winner’s Circle” HERE.

PS.  We should also be hearing from Parallax sometime this week regarding the winners of the Propeller Design Contest that we entered DeepNote into.

  1. Very cool! Have you thought about playing around with synthetic muscle to build the hand without traditional motors? The materials I’ve seen are still pretty weak but you could build a small light weight prototype using it and carbon fiber for the frame/skeleton.
