Week 12

05.04.18 It’s already the final week of senior project…and the final week of my internship. I figured I’d take this time to reflect on how the project went for me and what I gained from it. My project, I’ll admit, started off as something that was nearly impossible to accomplish within the 12 week period. […]

04.27.18 Week 11 already…I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. I began this project feeling that 12 weeks would give me more than enough time to accomplish all that I wanted to do and more. But it turned out to be quite the opposite. I found myself cutting out bits of my project to […]

Week 5

03.16.18 Since I was out visiting colleges for the second half of this week, I decided to spend the few days I had at the beginning reading about current research and technological advances in this general field of study. This included research about creating strong, yet flexible joints through the use of origami-like structures and […]

Week 4

03.09.18 This week was a great step forward in my project. Wanting to go ahead with the materials I already had available to me, I decided to work on creating a robotic arm or gripper that I could use in my testing of the glove. This basic design provides me with a hand that would […]
