Inspiration, Thoughts

Festo’s elephantine ‘Bionic Handling assistant’….

Just saw this amazing Robotic arm from Industrial Automation Major FESTO’s website….

Supposedly inspired by the Elephant’s trunk , there are a couple of very good movie clips in the site which is a must watch!

Core77 recently talked about this as the product when ‘Design catches up with robotics computing, Mechanical arms get cooler’

It seems the Doc Ock- like robotic appendages will soon become a reality- at the very least in some manufacturing Industry  🙂
