Are you Sarah Connor?
Developed by the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the fully functional anthropomorphic robot hand can withstand major collisions and even direct pounding with a hammer, baseball bat or metal pipe, making it an essential part of future indestructible humanoid robots.
UGH. Really, guys? What’s the purpose of a robotic hand that’s impenetrable to hammers, baseball bats and pipes? I seriously doubt a robot is gonna run into those things on the job UNLESS THEIR JOB IS KILLING HUMANS. I’m on to you, German Aerospace Center. Or should I say “Skynet”? DUM-DUM-DUM!
Hit the jump for a brief video demonstration of somebody beating the thing with a hammer and bat.
