Caption

Artificial hand. Ultralight Anthropomorphic Hand with a human hand. This artificial hand is for use as a prosthetic or as an attachment on a humanoid robot. Unlike conventional alternatives, it performs human-like movements and can grasp a wide range of objects. The hand uses hydraulic fluid actuators, positioned in the fingers and wrist. These allow flexibility of movement and are also self-adapting, ensuring that the hand's grasp is never too hard or soft. The actuators also ensure that the hand is lightweight and cheap to produce. The surface of the hand is soft to the touch, making it feel more natural. It was developed at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, Germany.
