Evan Booth, a super skilled builder of stuff made “out of other stuff”, created Hedberg, a working bionic hand that was crafted entirely (with the exception of adhesives and power) out of the parts of a disassembled Keurig K350 Coffee Maker. The 200-hours of this incredible project was condensed into a dizzying 5-minute timelapse that shows every bit of the exceptional work he did.
• One single Keurig used (K350/300 2.0 Brewer)
• The only non-Keurig materials are adhesives and the 12v external power supply
• Used basic tools—rotary, heat gun, common hand tools, etc.
• No plans…just a general idea of how things should be constructed
• Build time: 199 hours, 56 minutes, and 36 seconds (read: hands on things)
Booth responded to a valid question by commenter who asked how he got it to move at the end.
…the motor runs way too fast at 12v, so I had to build a gangster speed controller using another motor, a magnet, and a magnetic switch
