HackerHand + 5 Channel Interface (Beta Gen 2)

Announcing a collaboration between Backyard Brains and HackerHand, a Chilean father & son invention team that has designed a robotic hand controlled by servomotors. HackerHand_View2_webCombined with our 5-Channel Muscle SpikerShield, we have created an interface (now in Generation 2) that allows you to experiment with hand decoding algorithms.

This is our most advanced product, not for the faint hearted. We are releasing this hand with software that uses both support vector machine and Euclidean Distance algorithms , which we are working to improve all the time. We currently have ~60-80% accuracy of 5 fingers, when moved individually, but we are not signal classification experts – This is where you come in!
