For instance,

  • In January 2022, researchers at Biomimetics and Dextrous Manipulation Lab at Stanford University created a robotic hand named farmHand. It is capable of handling various items, such as angle grinders, raw eggs, basketballs, jugs of liquids, plates, and even bunches of grapes. It is equipped with multi-jointed fingers that resemble a human hand and these are topped with gecko-inspired adhesives.
  • In December 2021, engineers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) developed a reconfigurable hybrid robotics system called Soft Touch inspired by the human hand. This robot hand gripper can manipulate and grip a range of different objects from delicate, soft, and small things to bulky, heavy, and large ones. This development would help those industries that rely on the dexterity of human beings, including fast-moving consumer goods packaging, vertical farming, and food assembly.
