Sleight of Hand, Robot Style

Posted 22 Aug 2009 at 20:30 UTC by steve Share This

Rog-a-matic sent a link to some really fast robot hands. This is a YouTube video from our friends at BotJunkie. Sure, it's made the rounds of Gizmodo, Popsci, and digg, but if you haven't seen it yet, it's still worth watching. The hardware was developed at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Komuro Lab. If the name sounds familiar it's because these are the same folks we mentioned back in August 2005 with the robot hand that can catch 300 kph fastballs and rotate 180 degress in a tenth of second. It took a few years but we finally have video of the hands in action!
