    Just sharing my led finger tip sensors. I plan to use an IR sensor in the hand to detect objects.

      you might have better sources for IR sensors – my own experiments and results are rather poor. Another issue might be integrating the sensors result into the control loop. I think without an optical identification of the part you want to grab you won’t be able to gain much. Another issue is the current joint angels of your finger parts. These depend on the frictions whithin the joint links as we have only a single string for manipulation.
      I currently would rather try to implement Alans/Martens way of having force sensors on the string pull force.
