Robotic Hand Picks up Objects with Electrostatic Attraction

Robotic Hand Picks up Objects with Electrostatic Attraction | In Compliance Magazine

An inexpensive robotic hand was developed that uses electrostatic attraction to pick up objects. The hand features powered electrodes that continue to produce static electricity, instead of the charge naturally dissipating over time. Technology was added to the hand to prevent dust from being attracted to the fingers.

The robotic hand is made of flexible materials that allow it to hold objects of varying sizes and shapes. These robotic hands could replace robots that use suction cups to pick up objects changing the future of manufacturing.
