Hank Robot Has the Human Touch

Hank Robot Has the Human Touch
The impressively dexterous Hank robot can mimic the ability of the human hand to pick up small and delicate objects.

Developed by a team from Cambridge Consultants, Hank is equipped with hollow, silicon fingers that are embedded with sensors during the molding process. The fingers are pneumatically controlled, flexible and food-safe, and can also be easily replaced if they become damaged. Because each finger reacts individually in response to sensor feedback, they can carefully close until making contact with the object—offering a level of control ideal for agricultural work and warehouse picking.
