We will release the design data of HACKberry, our latest 3D-printed bionic hand, as open source for the purpose of speeding up the development through participation of cooperators from all over the world. In addition, we hope that cooperators will deliver this artificial arm to those we cannot reach ourselves due to distance and other constraints.
Hackberries, which are a species of trees included in the elm family, grow many branches.
Our goal is to develop an artificial arm that would become the platform upon which developers and artificial arm users from all over the world are able to build as they wish.
The name represents our vision to “hack” at problems, grow branches of joy that reach out to users and enable their ideas and efforts to bear fruit ( “berries” ).
