Grabber was designed to be used by people who use their mouth to pick up items — its goal, simply, is to grab stuff and move it around the house. It combines 3D printed parts based on a pincer and a mouth guard, with a spring mechanism to clench items, but between prototypes the team realized they had a problem. They had designed it so that when the user bites down, it opens the grabber, thinking this way it would mean less jaw work. But in testing, they realized, if you release your jaw to grab something, you lose the control you have on the bite end. So the team made modifications. Now, the user clenches to close the Grabber.
Team Grabber was awarded the MakerBot award for Rapid Prototyping. Team members: Kim Lahtrop, Adam, Alex Gecht, Noam Platt, Maayan Kahana, Inbal Halperin.
