Dexterous Robotic Hand

Shadow Dexterous Hand
A company called the Shadow Robot Company has been developing a robotic hand that pushes the boundaries of what is currently available. It has all sorts of degrees of freedom, and force-feedback allows it to grip stuff without crushing it. Something like this will become the standard for prosthetics in a few years, and realistic humanoid robots will probably trace their origins back to this hand.
