Video: Creepily Realistic Robot Hand

by Serkan Toto on August 11, 2010

Kyoto-based Squse has developed the so-called Robot Hand H-Type [JP], a creepily realistic (but very cool) robotic hand. The hand’s “bones” are made of polycarbonate, while the skin is silicon rubber. It weighs 340g and can lift up and move objects weighing up to 1.5kg. The secret lies in its 16 joints and 22 actuators.

Needless to say, the Robot Hand H-Type will be used mainly for industrial applications (for “pick and place” actions). Squse says that two auto makers and another two companies from the food industry already showed interest. A three item set (hand, arm and image-processing system) costs a whopping $94,000.
