The High-Speed Robot Hand

from Ishikawa Komuro Lab's, is a cutting edge marvel of contemporary mechanical engineering and visual sensing processing, among many other on board, extraordinary technologies. In the video, we see the high-speed robot hand, performing impressive acts of dexterity and skillful manipulation. Among its repertoire of capabilities, we see, the manipulator dribbling a ping-pong ball, spinning a pen, throwing a ball, tying knots, grasping a grain of rice with tweezers, and tossing / re-grasping a cellphone!


And it does many activities at such a blindingly high speed, that its impossible for our minds eye, discerning anything, much, other than a blur!

In real terms, the hand uses high-speed actuators with harmonic drive gears. The hand can close in 1/10th of a second!
