re: Pentagon Seeks Robotic Hand With Soft Touch
So am I reading this
correctly, I can get a huge discount if I buy these arms by the thousand? All
jokes aside this is really cool that a robot can have that detailed controlled
with small targets, and complete the tasks successfully. It is also amazing that
the cost of these is so inexpensive to make comparatively. DARPA has
successfully created the same product for a 1/16th of the cost, why
wouldnG«÷t you order these by the thousands?
