MobiLimb is a new shape-changing component with a compact form factor that can be deployed on mobile devices. A finger that can be attached to a smartphone. This gives it a lot of new capabilities.
It is a small 5 DoF serial robotic manipulator that can be easily added to (or removed from) existing mobile devices (smartphone, tablet).
In the spirit of human augmentation, which aims at overcoming human body limitations by using robotic devices, our approach aims at overcoming mobile device limitations (static, passive, motionless) by using a robotic limb.This project is published at the HCI conference UIST 2018./ Marc Teyssier
