Man, that is AWESOME. This is the kind of stuff I like see. I always viewed robot limbs as slow, clunky, and awkward. This is quite the opposite. I wonder how long it will take to make a bipedal robot that walks fluidly and naturally.

Wow! I'd much rather have that for an arm. Or just HAVE that arm… I'm not sure what I'd use it for but I want it.

I eagerly await the day when they make Asimov style robots <3
Personal slave FTW!

good lord, we're all doomed…

But that is really cool, I'd imagine the tweezers one would've been ahrd to get because it'd need to retain the right pressur so it won't close or fall out. And the regrasping. That was so cool. It calculated (I guess) when and how the remote would land so it wouuld catch it at the right time. It's so cool.

It's a great little mechanical device.
If we could divorce that from the fantasy of the android-robot-human-like-machine thing it's be great.
