Re: Foolish mortals!

You're right. The human hand is an amazing tool, but for a robot, it may well be better to have multiple interchangeable "hands" for different jobs, including tentacles. You just have to look at automated production lines to see the many and varied ways already in use for handling all sorts of tasks Something like a human hand but heat/cold/acid resistant and the option for the "bones" to change from rigid to flexible to make it even more adaptable might be nice.
