Video: The Fastest Robot Hands in the East

Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory, the same folks that developed the pitcher 'bot in last week's baseball-playing tandem, have also developed an incredible robotic hand can bounce balls at furious speed, toss and catch cylindrical objects in a standing upright position, and even twirl a rod between its fingers as easily as a person plays with a pencil.

The high-speed, multi-fingered hand demonstrates dexterity and reaction times which well surpasses those of humans, and also make the robotic pitcher's abilities and lineage much clearer.

Just remember not to challenge a robot with these smoking hands to a duel at Westworld.
