Did anybody try to use shape memory alloy wires for tendons? It might be tricky to wire the end at the finger tips unless somebody could make a remix connecting all 5 ends as a common ground connection internally inside the hand then have a single ground connection come out from the rear of the hand. Another issue is the heat that this wire generates. A high temperature nylon or another material might be necessary since regular PLA might get damaged after multiple heating cycles even though they are brief.
