Video: The robot horn

The German company Festo has created this flexible and very agile robotic arm inspired by the trunk of an elephant . It can be used to select products from a production line and place them in their box, ready to be packed or sent to the warehouse, but also for medical purposes, in schools and even in homes. Thanks to the three segments into which it is divided and the independent air chambers that it contains within its robotic skeleton, it can bend in an S-shape and move in all directions. And, as if that were not enough, it has resistance sensors that detect collisions and limit their movements if they encounter an obstacle, which provides security for interaction with human beings .

It is especially recommended to handle fragile objects, since the end of the arm has res t tentacles to functions fingers of a hand perfectly measure the force required to hold an object without damaging it .
