The AMBIDEXTROUS ARM is a prototype universal human-like arm with a manipulator that is double-jointed, allowing it to be both a left hand and a right hand all in one. It has online, real-time remote control. Position sensors make possible precise control. It is a compliant hand being actuated by pneumatic rubber muscles located in the forearm, with its finger and hand components 3D printed.
The Ambidextrous Arm was initiated by Stelarc and is a collaboration with the School of Engineering and Design at Brunel University London and the Alternate Anatomies Lab, School of Design and Art (SODA), Curtin University, Perth.
