Robotic grippers based on granular jamming

by CornellCCSL • 695,515 views

This video is a high level introduction to our jamming-based robot grippers for a general audience. Cornell Creative Machines Lab:

This is how hooves work. mistery solved
So.. this is why Doraemon's hands are round... Fujiko F Fujio are f*ckin genius!
How the hell did you think that up? Very good association! 
Its a robot from the future; of course!
How far can science go?

ROBOTICS!!! and COFFEE!!!  = Awesome  i am a fan? 
What if it has to pick up something with a sharp point on top? 
Pick it from the side
But, what if I don't want my granules jammed?
Sorry about the Bloink, was not intended to this thread. The gripper is great, I'd say ingenious.
Aww its so cute, why is this not in every factory?

One of the primary reasons diverse perspectives are important to have.
I normally don't like those posts that says "Those X people who dislike this video must... " because I always believe everyone have their own preferences. However, in this case, I do wonder what are the reasons for those 0.66% negative ratings. Are there some valid technical reasons for their negative responses? 
Maybe people who are generally afraid of the rapid progress of technology

awesome, the way it grab things and release them with additional force (like when it's shooting a ball to the ring, etc), i mean just wow
Doraemon did this before it was cool *hipster mode Fujiko F Fujio are f**king genious,
teknologi tangan doraemon sudah ditemukan, berikutnya, kantong ajaib!
But doraemon was born few decades ago. Awesome.

ternyata begini cara kerja tangan tanpa jari-jarinya doraemon
doraemon, fuck yeaaaah... (^@^)v
This seems like a pretty good approach to robotics in space, assuming that it can withstand the large temperature range. 
Doraemon this is cartoon

Found this clever way to build robotic grippers.
viva doraemon viva fujiko f fujio
Thats why doraemon's hand can grab anything even it round shape
Doraemon brought me here

came here because a picture of how pony hooves might work :D
i've got a question. got here trough grabcad challenge, but how is the pick and place precision of the gripper. i can imagine that it would be hard to specify the exact location of the object inside the gripper so it could be hard to place a small object on a precise spot. although shooting go's quit well ;-)  
this explains doraemon's hand!

I don't think this can use trigger based tools, though, like power tools such as hand drills. 
just add an extra arm for that stuff if you need it.
Doraemon invented this 40 years ago.

So THIS is how ponies in equestria can hold things with their hooves.

Doraemon's hands.
Incredible. Now that's why we need science n innovation!
How would it heal if it got cut though? I think you would have to have a pressure sensor to know when to heal, and there's the problem with the skin not aligning. Also, since evolution works in steps, there would need to be a reason for a bone sac without the pump.
Hm... coffee and party balloons... Sounds like pinkie pie alright!
Put the granular jamming in the fingertips for increased grip precision.
yeah, sooner or later they could probably use the same consept to make it climb up walls
I guess if you're dealing with small time business, bang for buck does come into play. The company I work with deals with a product that ranges at around 1000 USD. We run 24/7 and produce 1200/24 hours. The money we work with 5% goes a big way. Not to mention precision is not simply quantity but quality as well. I can tell you from inside experience that companies who do in fact use these "expensive" units will continue. Our robotic grippers range around 2.5 mill and we don't regret a cent spent
You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. I love how you tactfully connected these back to ponies in a way that answers many questions about how they actually pick things up.
Oh, so this is how Doraemon grabs something huh :D ??
Actually, if an amputee were to use this, in my eyes they would become Bomberman.
Would there be any way for the gripper to sense what it is picking up? So that if one in a factory deals with two separate objects and has to put them is specific places, it wouldn't just be programmed to pick up whatever is just in front of it, but it would pick up the object and determine for itself where it's supposed to go?
Cool! So this is what it's like when you're a Powerpuff girl and you don't have thumbs!
I can, it is actually quite simple, some bone fragments, some liquid (synovial fluid or blood would probably do) and some muscle pump , wrap it with elastic skin and there you go.
I need to know how ponies brought people here!I came here normally, and I feel as though I've missed out
How did I get here from ponies? O.o
It doesn't have to be beneficial at first; as long as whoever gets that mutation manages to produce fertile offspring that can pass the genes onwards anything else doesn't matter. What makes you think such an individual wouldn't reproduce? Perhaps even if those earlier steps made the individual less capable, perhaps that actually turned out to be a reproductive advantage, since those individuals wouldn't be as hard to rape as "healthier" individuals and so have more offspring than the pickiers
I'm sorry, but the Powerpuff girls did this ages ago.
I figured there'd be room for both. These things look useful and versatile, but I can imagine they'd be less durable, require more maintenance and replacement, and not as strong as solidly built robot arms.
is this now related to every pony video?
So how long will it take the companies to finally come up with some earphones that actually fit?
So that's how Doraemon's paw works!
there is one massive problem with this, since the gripper is packed with a vacuumed granular substance, determining the flow of the compression is near pseudo random. Even with synthetic granules you will still under go varied results and the practical use of this gripper would be in an automated scenario which involves iterations to be 100% consistent. I can't see this replacing "expensive" grippers. There is a reason why they are "expensive".
Worse mutations have been passed on to the next generations. Mutations don't have to be beneficial, the only thing that matters is the genes getting passed on.
I've never heard of doreamon... Why is there not a comment about ponies in top position?
And soon i will be able to play the holophoner!
Yeah but my party balloons are filled with whippits.
Only problem I see is the delicate rubber membrane which could easily start leaking when handling sharp objects.
Fucking hooves man, how do they work?
that bag of coffee is better at darts than me
I'm sure I've seen one of these designs before by using a ball to pick up pretty much any object. Using inexpensive materials though such as coffee and a balloon is quite a good usage of that idea. It does the job well and pretty easily, which is needed for a gripper. Anyway, seems this video attracted a bunch of different people together. Looks like there's a lot of characters with no fingers that can grip things.
Can someone pls tell me what Robot is that? Model number or something?
I can't help but think of Sweetie Bot when I watch this. The future IS closer than you think!
Aww man. I could've sworn it was hoof magnets...
Apart from the fact that it is already established in the show that they are solid actual hooves, yes. Nice try though.
great it just got a hand and its already better than me at darts and basketball
