Hand and Webshooter

This page is about building the various hands and accessories for Robot Spiderman. There are some YouTube videos about this section, or check out the main project index for the rest Scroll down for pictures and words.

I decided that one hand should have a Webshooter which ISN’T Silly String!. The hand needs to rotate and the middle fingers need to pull back in typical ‘Webshooter pose’. There are three servos in the hand, one to rotate it and one to move the fingers, also one to launch the web.

The web is launched with a spring on a cylinder taken from a ‘snakes in a pot’ trick. Check out the video above to see in in action.
