Robotic hand catches 300km/h fastballs

Robotic catcher

Yogi Berra ain't gonna like this: researchers at the University of Tokyo have created a robotic catcher that can catch a 300km/h fastball. The robot is really just a robotic claw with three fingers and an array of photo detectors that can track a ball's movement and instantly calculate its trajectory. Now all they have to do is pair it up with that robot which can hit 300km/h fastballs some dude at Hiroshima University created a few months back…

P.S. - The video is sort of hypnotic.
