Scientists closing in on perfecting a robotic hand

Scientists closing in on perfecting a robotic hand: "senior lecturer at the University of Portsmouth's Institute of Industrial Research, told Computerworld that creating the perfect robotic hand is akin to 'the Holy Grail of science.' 'The human hand makes us different from animals,' said Liu. 'We are talking about having super-high-level control of a robotic device. Nothing that exists today even comes close. It is still a long way to go, but we are confident we are on the right track.' While the device could provide help to the manufacturing industry, Liu said it also could have significant implications for the elderly and those with disabilities."
