It's awkward to program the Ada hand and see it move while it's on the desk and the cables are plugged in.
To find a way to hold the hand in a nice position, while it can remain plugged in and be programmed.
1. The solution should hold the hand in an accessible position, to test grasping capabilities and movements without it falling over
- -This is often what's being tested with firmware uploads
- So other manufacturing tools aren't required beyond the tools used to make the hand itself
- So it's easy to connect and disconnect the hand from power, USB and the headphone jack
- Since the original Ada hand is released under the this license, any derivatives must be distributed under the same license
Design a hand stand to hold the hand vertically above the desk. This solution could have embedded connectors so the hand can "Dock" in it and could then have female connectors at the base of the stand to connect all of the relevant cables.
1. Design a stand to hold the hand vertically up above the table
2. Use M3 inserts and bolts as these are used in the rest of the hand design
3. Include male power, headphone and USB connectors at the top of the stand so the hand can "dock"
4. Include female connectors at the base of the stand to connect standard cables
5. Include an On/Off switch to make resetting the hand easier
1. Use a hot glue gun to secure the connectors in place, this would make exactly which connector was used more flexible
2. Micro USB extender, 4-pole headphone cable extender, DC Jacks
