Final Project Idea – Cardboard Grabber Hands

For my final project idea I decided to focus on the realm of cardboard. There are a plethora of DIY projects where people have taken scrap cardboard and turned them into chairs, couches, art, and even designs with mechanical use. I wanted to create something that I would continue to use outside the class, and the thought came to me from an infomercial for the reach/grabber arms for lazy/old people. I plan to make this design out of cardboard, but fitted for the human hand with actual gripping capability. Once the class is over I can use this to extend my reach, or even incorporate it into a Halloween costume, if I decide to make the hands of the arms huge.

    neat idea – cant wait to see this lovely creation come to fruition. My question is what aesthetic do you plan on incorporating into this design? Are all components going to be made from cardboard? why do you chose cardboard as the material?
