When most people think about robots, they dream about images of robots that look like people: humanoids, walking bots, and features that mimick the way humans move, interact, and perform.
More specifically, robots are becoming increasingly realistic in modeling humans. However, one field of robotics known as manipulation has been very challenging from the start. Being able to grip and move objects has always been difficult for robots. The human hand is hard to translate into a formula or mechatronic system.
