Three-Fingered Robotic Hand is Faster Than Your Five Fingers

I knew it would only be a matter of time before robots would start taking over, and here’s more evidence that the days of human dominance are numbered. Check out the amazing things that this high-speed robotic hand can do. It can grasp a rice grain with a tweezer, catch a spinning cell phone, dribble, tie a knot, and other complex high-speed tasks.

The video from Tokyo’s Ishikawa Oku laboratory explains all of the science and technology behind this incredible robot hand. It uses a hand with only three fingers to perform its feats. This coupled with high-speed sensors allow it to perform stuff that were previously hard for robots to do. I like how it can actually throw a ball onto a target. With that dexterity and accuracy, I’m sure we’ll soon have robot soldiers.

It makes you wonder what else this project will create, once it comes to fruition.
