This film from 1968 shows Marvin Minsky's tentacle arm, developed at the MIT AI Lab (one of CSAIL's forerunner labs). The arm had twelve joints and could be controlled by a PDP-6 computer or via a joystick. This video demonstrates that the arm was strong enough to lift a person, yet gentle enough to embrace a child.
