Shadow Dextrous Hand grabs attention at Tokyo robot event

Another standout at this week's International Robot Exhibition 2009 in Tokyo is the Shadow Dextrous Hand along with the CyberGlove. The robotic hand can be operated remotely by a human wearing the sensor glove to perform actions as delicate as cradling an egg, changing a light bulb or writing with a pen.

Developed by the UK-based Shadow Robot Company, the hand is capable of up to 24 distinct movements that mirror that of a real human hand. You can see video of the Shadow Dextrous Hand in action here.
