Jamming Robotic Gripper

This video fascinated the world when it was first released. The robot is comprised of a balloon filled with coffee grinds. Simple… and the revolutionary concept of “jamming” the particles together by drawing a partial vacuum has allowed this hand to grasp a wide variety of objects that even humans have a hard time holding on to. The robot can even pick up a raw egg! This demonstration, though over a year old, still doesn’t fail to impress. The team has been busy with improvements, and there are many more videos showing cool things that this gripper can do.
