NASA and General Motors have teamed up to develop an extraordinarily innovative and high-tech robotic glove, aptly named the RoboGlove, that was originally designed to be used for working on the International Space Station but has now been modified and licensed for terrestrial use by manufacturing workers.

This robotic glove is equipped with a whole host of sensors and actuators that are designed to accurately mimic the functioning of muscles, nerves and tendons. The main advantage with this product is that it provides users with significantly augmented gripping strength.

Not only with this robotic glove aid manufacturing projects, but it continues to prove how innovations designed for space-faring can have a real and tangible advantage when modified for use on earth.
