Helberg: A Bionic Hand Made From One Keurig Coffee Maker

If you have a Keurig K350 coffee maker, 200 hours of free time, and a LOT of creative skills, you can turn the disassembled parts of that coffee maker into a functioning bionic hand:

According to Evan Booth, the creator of “Helberg”, the build details are as follows:

  • One single Keurig used (K350/300 2.0 Brewer)
  • The only non-Keurig materials are adhesives and the 12v external power supply
  • Used basic tools—rotary, heat gun, common hand tools, etc.
  • No plans… just a general idea of how things should be constructed
  • Build time: 199 hours, 56 minutes, and 36 seconds (read: hands on things)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Kimini 2.2?

Kimini

The Kimini 2.2 is a “from-scratch, home-built, carbon shelled, mid-engined (Honda Prelude VTEC 4-cylinder) Mini.

After 3,000 hours of labor and $20K in components and material, I’d say the end result speaks for itself.
