Well the point was to do a pressure test with the hand. so thats what i was thinking.

I cant find a servo shield thats still in production. Could you please link me to it. smiley

By the way, would those 2 motors work well for my purpose or would you suggest something else?

I havent been on the forum in a while but I'm about to order some parts. Im planning to use servos.... specificallly these ones.

http://www.amazon.com/Hitec-32645S-HS-645MG-Torque-Metal/dp/B003T6RSVQ/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1356380326&sr=8-10&keywords=servos

http://www.amazon.com/Hitec-31311S-HS-311-Standard-Universal/dp/B0006O3WVE/ref=pd_sim_t_5

Im currently diagramming the breadboard and ordering my voltage regulators etc.
I was wondering if you guys could reccomend to me a decent breadboard that might work well for four servos.
Last but not least I was wondering how i would be able to hold my servos in a position. I want the hand im creating to grip a rod and im wondering how i would be able to make it do that.

Thanks guys Youve been helping alot so far. smiley

Can you explain that a little more? Im very new to this.

That looks good. Ill check around for those servos. how about bread-boarding? any idea how that would work?

Boston Mass. But even chatting and working out solutions through skype or AIM helps.

Alright. What type of servo would you reccomend for this project? i need 2 types for different hands. Also would you think the fingers would bend properly if i linked one motor to 2 fingers?

This is my post on the other board http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,128414.0.html. If someone has any expertise on this field of arduino, could you please help me?

Hi guys! I'm just starting to work with Arduino as i need it for a science fair project. I think i should be all set on the programming side but i was really hoping you guys could nudge me in the right direction to help  me complete my project by January. I'm basing my project off of this abstract http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Robotics_p003.shtml.

What i really need help with is deciding which motors to use and somewhat of an idea of how to breadboard. For this science fair i'm testing 2 different types of motors to see how much pressure the hand can have on a pressure sensor. So i think i need motors with different amounts of torque(?). Also i need an idea of how much power my breadboard would, what type of breadboard, and how to use transistors.

Any help would be appreciated. Links would be great too as long as you explain to me what im looking at.

Thanks again!
