Really, a robot hand post – everything else is just school. Calculus for days.
So I made this board – borrowed the schematic from here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Muscle-EMG-Sensor-for-a-Microcontroller/ , ordered a bunch of 0603 components, and after an evening of dubious soldering, I had, in theory, an emg board. Handed it off to Julian and Lachie, who needed to poke it a bit (plugging things in, poking the IC to seat it properly, the usual) and then, apparently:
Yeah. That’s my board running a robot finger. Booyah.
