    That is quite impressive. The tech still has some ways to go before it's a full replacement for a working, normal hand(would need a proper nerve hookup and better motors) but it's a massive step above the old pinching hook.

    Man! We keep getting farther and farther with this stuff. As diosoth says, we're still quite a ways from full use, but this is still very impressive.
