Illustration for article titled Somebody Buy This NASA Robot Hand Complete With Space Gloves

I wish I was so rich I could justify buying this NASA Omni-Hand I off eBay. Not only is it the first motorized dexterous robotic hand, it even comes with space gloves. Space gloves! Yours for $18,750.


Only two prototypes of the hand were ever made and this is the only complete and functional system available. Here's a video of it in action:

Okay, fine. Now that it's 2010, the Omni-Hand I acts like your run-of-the-mill robotic hand but think about its place in robotic history. And think about the space gloves! The gloves are made from the same company who make NASA space suits and I might chop off two of my fingers just so I could wear the gloves. [eBay via BornRich]
