D’arc Studio presents ‘My Hand’ at Fuori Salone Milano. My Hand is a collaboration with Biorobotics Institute Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna located in Pisa.
‘My Hand’ is a technical masterpiece that uses hi-tech mechanism which consists of three internal motors and sensors that should recreate the sense of touch, researchers call it the ‘restoration of physiological sense’.
From the beginning the project ‘My Hand’ has had a special care towards design, our main goal was to build a hi-tech prosthesis to show off and not hide.
D’Arc studio has been working on the aesthetic, developing 3d printable parts and giving ideas on how to implement those with the project.
The workflow combined digital sketches made using Wacom tablets with 3d modeling design and 3d printing.
MyHAnd was a very difficult challenge , but we are proud to have accepted it. Often we invaded the technical field engineers with art and design , and together we have developed a highly innovative concept . There are still many tests and improvements to be made . The point at which we currently are, serves to demonstrate that a technological and functional project should also be beautiful.
The bionic limb is ready to become a reality, in fact human trials should begin within one or two months.
