Alex Czech's jointed exoskeleton presents tech-aided evolution in the workplace and beyond

A 3D-printed hand exoskeleton looks very costume-y but with the freedom of movement and ease-of-construction, it should be seen more as a working platform than a final product. Imagine adding tools that make future work easier such as elongated fingers for delicate handling of harmful materials.

Created by Alex Czech from Melbourne, the exoskeleton hand is estimated to cost a measly $8.16 including the ABS plastic and the nuts and bolts of the joints. But the hand is only the first of a bigger project; Czech is planning to build a full-body exoskeleton.
