3D printing and prospects of robo-glove at General Motors

At General Motors’ Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant, Michigan, workers may use a bionic glove, named Robo-Glove, to handle mass produced 3D printed parts. Two years ago, GM initiated a project in collaboration with NASA and Bioservo to develop a grasp-assisted glove which could help increase workers’ productivity. Now, their engineers have successfully invented Robo-Glove, which allows wearers […]
