Robot hand meets Sushi

We are anxiously waiting for the robot that makes the sushi, but at Squse, they have created the hand that can carefully place the delicacies in a box without crushing them. Could this invention mean the end of the factory worker? Of course not. They can all be retrained to manufacture robotic arms...

Another study published in the New England Journal of Medicine "found that using chelation therapy with EDTA to reduce lead levels in patients with kidney failure could prevent further loss of kidney function, save billions in healthcare costs and eliminate the need for dialysis in millions of people".

... contrary to the 'bionic hand', this Sushi Robot hand has a skeuomorph aspect - obviously 'the LOOKS' relate to a human hand, but 'the LOOKS' have no function beyond giving that impression. Right?

Hi Arnoud,
Sounds nice, but ... does this 'robot hand' really use all 5 fingers???
Anyway, earlier this year I did some research on the "next nature hands" and found that over the years there have been so many different robotic hands developed - and quite some of them were developed by using different technological principles.
You can find my article titled "NEXT NATURE HANDS: From the Star Wars 'bionic hand' to Time's 2008 best inventions!!", at:
http://www.handresearch.com/news/bionic-hands-prosthetics-i-limb-saeboflex-fluidhand.htm
(including: the Utah Arm - the SaeboFlex - the i-LIMB Hand - the Remedi-Hand - the Thought arm - the Luke Arm - and the Fluidhand ... and I have another one to add which was presented only a few weeks ago!)
Thanks!!
Martijn van Mensvoort.
PS. Hee Koert, wanneer ga je dit onderwerp nou eens ECHT grondig behandelen?
Overigens Koert, ik vraag me toch ook weer af of een robotische hand wel echt een voorbeeld van "next nature" is ... want je hebt "next nature" in je FAQ omschreven als "Next nature is the nature caused by human culture."
Maar ja, wat heeft een robot hand nou nog met natuur te maken???
(Ik denk dat je die link alleen maar kunt maken wanneer een robotische hand ook echt aan het menselijke lichaam wordt bevestigd - in mijn artikel tref je diverse voorbeelden. Want anders kun je van iedere robot, machine, of productie technologie wel zeggen dat het een voorbeeld van 'next nature' is, terwijl veel machines tegenwoordig dingen kunnen doen die nooit eerder mogelijk waren)
Wanneer kunnen we de 'next nature 2.0' definitie verwachten? :-)

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
