Hi, 
I was curious about the new Split Frame Design. Does the Frame Split exactly where the knuckles are placed in a Human Hand ? 

Thank you

Srivats,

Thanks for the question!  The answer is 'yes' and 'no'....The knuckles were placed according to the original design (based on the hand of Tim <-me).  Everyone will have different knuckle placement.  The folding mechanism of the Hobby Hand is lower than the folding of the normal hand (see picture below, click on the picture for link to original source).  We had a design constraint of adding the lateral finger movement servos.  The servo motors are placed where the hand should actually fold, but we feel that this was a reasonable compromise (add lateral movement vs. folding at a different location~).  If you have any other questions please let us know!
