Terminator robotic hand of doom is now a reality

The iconic metal hand left behind by the time traveling robot terror known as the Terminator just got one step closer to reality.

Developed by the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the fully functional anthropomorphic robot hand can withstand major collisions and even direct pounding with a hammer, baseball bat or metal pipe, making it an essential part of future indestructible humanoid robots. You can see the menacing hand of the future in action in the video below.
