Video: Robot hand shows off amazing dexterity, speed

da Engadget di Vladislav Savov


So you want something to look forward to in your fast approaching old age, eh? If robots playing baseball
doesn’t quite cut it, how’s about a robohand that redefines what we
understand by the word "dexterity"? The Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory is at it again, this time demonstrating robotic appendages with a reaction time of a single millisecond.
Using harmonic drive gears and a (really) high-speed actuator, the
three-fingered hands can tie your shoelaces, tweezer your brow, and
even perform some kung fu pen spinning for the ladies. Video after the
break — skip ahead if you must, but don’t miss out on the slow-mo
action at 2:40 in the demo, it’s pure kinetic poetry.
