Presenting, the shadow robot hand, it can pick up small coins from the floor and hold a tomato gently. It is achieved by using a compressed air in 36 of its 'muscles'. Its air reservoir is refilled by a foot pump. The robots limitation depends on the programmer who codes under GPL.The shadow robot hand is capable of 24 movements with integrated sensing and position control. It targets mainly the media, advertising, and public relations industries
1. Compressed Air Robotics - The use of compressed air in robotics is disrupting traditional robotics, potentially increasing efficiency and reducing costs.
2. Integrated Sensing - Integrating sensing and position control into robotics is a trend leading to more precise and versatile robotic capabilities.
3. GPL Coding - The use of GPL coding for robotic programming presents opportunities for collaboration and open source innovation.
1. Manufacturing - The compressed air and integrated sensing capabilities of the Shadow Robot Hand could revolutionize assembly line automation and efficiency.
2. Agriculture - The Shadow Robot Hand's ability to hold a tomato without causing damage could be useful in harvesting delicate fruits and vegetables.
3. Healthcare - The precise movements of the Shadow Robot Hand could make it a valuable tool for surgeries and other medical procedures.
