Robotic Hand Coordination

Coordination and a dexterity comes natural to you and me. For a long time we were superior because we had finite control over small objects and fast processing for great feats of dexterity like dribbling a ball. Well the day of the terminator draws closer as this video shows the finite and dexterous control a robotic hand with 3 fingers has. It has the ability to dribble a ping pong ball, throw a and catch a cellphone and it cab even rotate a pen. I was stunned when i saw this. This hand is already capable of picking up a rice grain with a piece of tweezers, imagine the stability it will have to do transplants and operations.
Really impressive stuff :P
