Modular Robotic Hand Moving Like A Live One (+VIDEO)



DAPRA, Sandia robot hand
DARPA in cooperation with Sandia National Laboratories has developed a modular robotic hand. The hand is controlled like a robotic puppet, mirroring the movements of an operator wearing a glove. Sandia hand has the human-like movements with impressive dexterity, and its fingers can be easily reattached, including specialized fingers. DARPA funded this project to disarm IEDs. The robotic hand is cost-effective as previous hands had cost around $250,000 and the Sandia hand is priced at $10,000 at the prototype stage.
