A custom-made robotic gripper

We have all heard about dexterous manipulation and generally the challenge of robotic grasping when it comes to every day objects that are fragile and require delicate operations. True problem one may think that can only be dealt with sophisticated computational solutions and advanced robotic grippers with touch sensors, force-feedback controls and so on.

Well you may want to think again after watching the following cool design of a custom-made robotic gripper, that uses as materials a balloon, coffee grain, plastic tubes and an air pump. A truly inspiring idea showing how simple solutions can be of great utility.
