I agree, this is a cool slide show.  And, there have been great advances in dexterity in robotic hands.

I'm curious about research into the number of fingers that are really needed and how the assigned task determines that need. Does a robot need a pinky?

“It's amazing the amount of research and effort going into this area.” @apresher: Exactly some amazing robotic stuff. I fear that the world might not need humans to do work hereafter. A plus as well as a risk that might hit the world if it not being used properly.
