What if you were given two extra robot arms to use? Could you open a closed door when your hands are full? Could you paint or build something faster or more efficiently? Might you become a master juggler? This Inami Hiyama Laboratory project explores that concept with Metalimbs, two robotic limbs with a variety of hand attachments that can be controlled with sensors and optical tracking markers on your knees, feet, and toes.
