Amazing Video of High-Speed Robot Hand

Watch as the robot hand dribbles a ping-pong ball, spins a pen at high speed, throws a ball, ties knots in a string, grasps a small grain of rice with a pair of tweezers, and then tosses and catches a cellphone!

Thanks to Bob Wright.

Why would a Terminator ever be limited to just human speeds? I want to see Arnold bounce a ping pong ball that fast.

The first Terminator movie actually had Arnold walking fairly slow.

That's my point. The action scenes were of necessity at human speed. Real robots are getting to be strikingly fast.

Consider the medical applications:

Dr. Thomas Chau is working on many technologies including a robotic hand receiving signals from muscle tissue.

Arnold's terminator days are likely in the past.

Super cool. Don't let the UAW see it.
