Robotic Grip Gauntlets

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Mar 14, 12

The Human Grasp Assist device may make science geeks and comic book lovers around the world giddy with the prospect of superhuman strength becoming more and more prevalent, but it actually has a more practical purpose than fulfilling fantastical thoughts. Developed jointly by researchers from NASA and GM, the Human Grasp Assist device will make using tools in space and on assembly lines much easier.

Also known as the K-glove or the Robo-Glove, the Human Grasp Assist device increases levels of hand dexterity by using leading-edge sensors, actuators and tendons comparable to the nerves and muscles in a human hand. By wearing the Human Grasp Assist device, people will exert less force to grip a tool, thus reducing fatigue so that they can work longer.
