Pull My Finger
SENSOPAC, an ominous sounding European outfit undoubtedly working for Skynet or perhaps Ernst Stavro Blofeld, is developing a robotic hand controlled by a robotic brain and featuring sensitive robot skin (no doubt soaked in Palmolive).
"The hand they have built is closely modeled on the human hand. It can snap its fingers, pick up an egg or carry a cup of coffee. Its fingers are moved by 38 opposing motors."
How much longer until they find out whether it can pull a trigger?
