Bionic Handling Assistant Mimics Elephant Trunk

This marvel of engineering is absolutely awesome. These videos will give you a visual of how the bionic handling assistant really works. Festo mimicked an elephant trunk very well. It can extend its length, grip small objects, and bend in other directions by adding or taking away air from the different segments. Watch this sweet video!
