Artificial Hand (from Aiko project)

One of the more intriguing projects to come of out building life-like human robots is the research on component body parts. Here is an excellent video showing state of the art fore-arm muscle control which can be directly tied to an artificial hand.[1] The hand project is tied to the Project Aiko Fembot.[2] Of course, fanboys know this has all been predicted for decades, ever since Luke Skywalker's "fix".[3]
