Submission + - Making Robots Mimic the Human Hand (nytimes.com)

RougeFemme writes: As part of a research project to develop low-cost artificial hands, DARPA has developed a two hand robot that can almost change a tire. Research has mastered grasping objects with robotic hands; the next objective is to manipulate the objects once grasped. Research also continues on a neural interface, a direct link between a robotic arm and the human brain. The ultimate goal of the research project is to develop prostethics and robotic arms for wider use, by reducing cost and improving dexterity and machine vision.
