The Lego Pincher
This project is to explore on the sense of touch using the phidgets motors.
We came up with the idea of pinching/grabbing stuff by putting it in between the motors.
The motors will move together simultaneously, creating a pinching action.
Using the touch sensor and teabox, user could send a pinch and the other party would receive a ‘pinch’.
The pinchers are built using legos because they are versatile and different shapes would provide a different sense of touch to the users.
