Submission + - Robot Hand from Shadow Continues to Impress - Vid (

kkleiner writes: The Shadow Dextrous Hand is a robotic arm that allows for fine motor control and precise movements. It’s accurate enough to pick up an egg, screw in a light bulb, or thread a needle. Even cooler, researchers can control it with a “Cyber glove”, allowing for 24 distinct human movements that mimic the user’s own hand. A British based company, Shadow has been displaying the hand for several years now, and recently demonstrated its latest model at IREX 2009. The hand, toted as the world’s most advanced, is available for sale to researchers (pricing has not been made public). Check out the impressive video.
