Luke an Arm !!!
February 3, 2008
The DARPA funded robotic arm prosthesis known as the “Luke Arm” is soon to go into clinical trials.
Apart from doing the routine functions of shaking hands, unlocking a door, etc., which most arm prosthesis available in the market are capable of doing today, this arm can also perform advanced motions like plucking chocolate-covered coffee beans, etc.
You can read more about this amazing technological marvel alongwith a details of the actual technology behind it here.
This brings me back to my college days when we used to read about the 3-axis , 4-axis and SCARA Robot-hands. It was fun . I wonder why I gave that up !!
