UCLA Lead Researcher Chang-Jin Kim developed a "microhand" measuring 1 mm when closed into a fist. Chang-Jin Kim says "It is the world's smallest robotic hand, and could be used to perform microsurgery." The robotic hand runs on gas pressure instead of electricity making it harmless for natural environments. Its four fingers are made from six silicon wafers, with polymer balloons which serve as a muscle at the wafers' joints.
