Grasp With Your Face: Velo2G Gripper used by Columbia University team for Assistive Robotics project

The Columbia University Robotics Lab team at this year's Cornell Cup used a Wilow Garage Velo2G Gripper prototype for their Assistive Robotics project. Their goal was to build a low-cost robotic arm, controlled by facial muscles. Due to its intrinsic compliance and adaptability, the Velo2G was a great fit.
