Robotic arm without motor drives

Well this is one crazy idea that struck my mind as I was going through my friends project proposal

Wel in their design of roboti arm the hand had 3 joints and a clasping hand So in total they needed 4 servo motors for this bot to work perfectly as per their design

This prototypical design has been long in use in the world of science

Right Now I am looking for desing which does not uses servo motors or pneumatic drives for the motion of these arms

Is this feaible ??

    Just the other day i was looking at my project presentation! 😀

    I have to run to my corporate life right now, but i'll try and post whatever I have on this today evening or over the weekend.

    One thought, when I was making my project I was unable to find a supplier in India so this may have to be imported. But then again, things may have changed in the last few years.

    I am in for this new coponent

    I looked into shape memory alloys But is it really capable to do some complex stuff like controlling a macro object😲
