Interesting notes from survey:
The way the tendons are secured to the spindle is a little frustrating, small knots can slip through and large knots can interfere with spooling the tendon. In general anything that makes replacing tendons easier or faster (pre-made tendons, maybe even with a nylon tip?) would be great.
Because of poor connectors w e couldn't rely on the smart-finger sensors at all, and (I personally did not try this, but this is what I was told) the tactile sensors w ould not w ork because of the hand overheating. Being able to use those existing sensors would have been enough. If it were possible to sense tendon tension that could be useful.
