‘Hank’ aspires to be the world’s most dexterous robot
A robot developed by Cambridge Consultants called Hank aims to be the world’s most dexterous robot with humanlike mobility.
Hank features pneumatic fingers that are flexible and contain a ‘pioneering’ sensor to provide a sense of touch and grip. Using the sensor, Hank is able to hold and grip even the most delicate objects.
The inability to emulate the human touch has been a key reason behind the lack of robot adoption in areas like manufacturing line picking and agriculture.
