Tried to create a self levelling hand for InMoov. I use a BNO055 for the pitch/roll recognition and a Arduino Nano for the servo control.
I had to redesign the hand connector to allow for a low friction movements of the strings. I used cutted nails and distance holders for easy movement. I have also redesigned WristLarge to have bumps on the wrist rather then the quick and dirty screw that is currently in place. The rightrobpart2V3 needed also a change to allow for the servo to bend the hand and allow for short and straight string path’s.
Tried to use a wrench servo to have a 180 degree hand rotation but it shows a funny behaviour with direction change. As a single degree change for the servo rotates the hand too much I tried to control the servo with writeMicroseconds(). This works fine when moving in 1 direction, on direction change it however only moves with a big first step resulting in a rather large jiggle on the rotation axis.
I plan to hide the BNO055 in the hand cover, the controller can go next to the servo.

Very nice Juerg!! This looks awesome!
I like the accelerometer effect shown in your video. The place where you have set your servo is a place for to set an extra servo, so I’m glad to see you did good use of that space.
I see you added a piece to mount the rear part of the servo. In one of my previous design the servo was lining sideway at that same spot.
I can see also that you managed the space to let the tendons of the fingers run between the two screws you added between the rotawrist3V2.stl and WristlargeV4.stl.
