Engineers of an Indian university have developed a 3D-printed robotic artificial hand.
The removable robotic hand can lift objects and things that weigh upto 400 grams.
It can be used for writing, using a mobile phone, among other activities.
The 3D-printed robotic hand is easy to make and is available at a low cost.
It has human-like fingers with a moving thumb and runs on a rechargeable battery.
The idea was introduced in a three-day science and technology conference at Kerala.
