Remember that creepy robotic hand we saw terrorizing Japan last week? Well now it's on the loose in some conference room picking up eggs, shaking hands, holding a pencil and crushing a cup with its super action Kung Fu Grip. No video of it crushing skulls but we know what's really going on, we know. Its purpose still isn't any clearer (manufacturing-only or also prosthetics?), only that its functionality is meant to exceed that of the human hand. See just one of many videos after the break.
