Shadow Dexterous Hand

From issue 39 of Make magazine: "Designed to mimic the human hand as closely as possible, the Shadow Dexterous has 20 actuated degrees of freedom and four actuated movements for a total of 24 joints. Each joint has a range of motion similar to that of a human hand. The system uses embedded PIC microcontrollers and PSoCs (Programmable Systems-on-Chips) in the hand itself for embedded control and pressure-sensing, plus EtherCAT protocol for overall control via a connected PC."
