A project called “Airic’s_arm” has resulted in a robotic arm that mimics the movement and biological structure of a human being. If you believe that robots will eventually rise up to massacre their tyrannical humanoid overlords, this may very well feel like the beginning of the end.
“The Airic’s_arm is a robotic arm fitted with artificial bones and muscles. The bone structure, consisting of the human bones such as ulna and radius, metacarpal bone and finger bone, shoulder joint and shoulder blade – joints that do not occur as such in the technical world – is moved via 30 muscles.”
