Scientists at the Institute of Robotoics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have created a robotic hand that can withstand very hard blows, according to IEEE Spectrum. The hand’s creators set out to build a hand with extreme durability, hoping to improve the robustness of robotic hands in general.

The scariest part perhaps is its uncanny resemblance to the hand of the infamous T-800, the robot model from the Terminator movies. Outfitted with a rubber and plastic shell however, the whole arm looks a bit more benign, as can be seen in the video below.

The range of motion and design of the hand is impressive.
