Handy Robotic Arm is a Helpful Extra Limb

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 2, 2008


The Handy robotic arm is meant to lend an extra hand for things like hammering, washing, painting, or kneading. It will be wireless capable and come with USB and midi ports, and employ “fuzzy AI logic” so it can learn your individual preferences.

It is expected to be released in the next couple of years and will be foldable for transport. The first model will be like this tabletop rendering but future models might have wheels and harnesses (really? harnesses?) for additional mobility.

This is a clean site so I don’t want to imply other less savory uses that folks might find for this item. I think this quote from the manufacturers, in conjunction with the above photo, will suffice: “Handy has a very, very firm but soft grip and its ability to oscillate up and down at select speeds is quite satisfying.” Mm-hmm.
