Robo-Elephant Tentacle Moves Just Like a Real Trunk
Robotics company Festo Bionics has released footage of a robotic manipulator arm modeled after an elephant's trunk. The first video in the gallery below is the concept animation; click on the second video to see the real thing in action. (Love how the grabbers hand off "giant peanuts" in the second video).
P.S. Check out the kite flying robot in video #2, around 3:29.
