The article describes the design procedure of animatronic effector. In addressing multiple element tentacles It is key to the design of mechanical gripper, gripper which defines agility as well as the type of grasping and handling options. The aim is to create a robotic arm. Approximation of kinematic human hand was our top priority in developing this animatronic hand. Each side of the joint range of motion is again the same or very close to that of a human hand.
