'Shadow Hand': A perfect replacement for a human hand

Innovations in the field of 'Robotics' have come a long way since we saw the advent of technological breakthroughs in 'neurotechnology' and human science researches. Scientists are familiar with the fact that the human body is the most intricate and the most inspiring machine that may form the basis of 'Robotic Science Technology'. Robotic researchers and scientists are conducting in-depth probes to justify this fact. Similar to its biological counterpart, this air muscle can contract as well as expand making it do what ever you want it to do for you.

Scientists are able to develop something that is far too advanced than what we thought of a 'robotic hand' to look like some decades ago, they call this 'Tactical Robotic Hand' - the 'Shadow Hand'. This may be one of the major breakthroughs in this field as the robotic hand works on the principle of air pressure for contracting and expanding its muscles.

Though similar to a human hand, the 'robotic air muscle hand' can do wonders that may be a lot tougher for its human counterpart. Its movements and exact 'coordinate positioning' is made possible through motion sensing computers systems that are way too advanced than the contemporary systems we use nowadays.

The scientists have incorporated 40 air muscle fibers that can enhance the Shadow Hand's performance, which in fact makes it a good replacement for the human hand. With its touch sensing fingertips (which actually acts as a human skin counterpart), the Shadow Hand can sense lightest of the objects too.

They can amazingly contract to 40% of their original length giving a maximum amount of pressure needed to do almost any amount of chore given to it. Its proper 'leverage mechanism' is definitely something to boast of, and the researchers are looking forward to enhance its abilities to the utmost.
