Improved Robotic Gripper for better grip (TheSquid)

I am designing a robotic part which is the gripper, It has a different way of holding an object, instead of just grabbing it like an average VEX Claw, it has fingers which goes around the object like squid tentacles, it creates a larger contact area therefore better grip without damaging the item it is holding. It has the ability to hold objects of different shapes and sizes.

[email protected] Using a 3d printer, the gripper can be customized , 1 motor controls 2 fingers or 1 motor controls 1 finger, about the " the fingers goes around the object" this mechanism uses the same one as in this video
