Video: The grabbing (robot) hands grab all they can…

Personally, I think Panasonic‘s DSM-Hand is cool not because it can grab a glass without either dropping it or breaking it (I can do that sometimes), but because it uses gears instead of motors to drive its joints.

Those initials stand for Differential, Shaft and Mechanism, which pretty much spells out how this latex and metal fella does his thing.

Whether you like the approach or not YMMV, but see for yourself anyway as demonstrated for me last week by one of the fantastically friendly Panny Center guides. And is she supposed to look so fearful for her glassware?:
