1. A [url=http://www.intercloud9.com/products/predictive-dialer.html]predicitve dialer[/url] can manage the outward dialing process as well as inward calls management for a long long time 2. Route inbound calls to the right person in the right department 3. Filter outward or outbound calls for answering machines, National Do Not Call Registry, DND, busy tone, etc. 4. Get the advantages to integrated CRM (Consumer Relationship Management) to effectively and efficiently manage the customer’s information 5. Increase productivity and efficiency of the dialing agent or the outbound caller 6. It can be installed and integrated into any existing contact center facility.

I understand the painstaking effort that led to the development of this particular robotic hand. I certainly appreciate the genuine undertaking and dedication and therefore affirm that the team deserves merit. I also hope for further improvement in that design so that it may more closely resemble the perfect human hand with yet more power than natural muscles. I know that it is technically feasible and therefore cannot but encourage our friends to leap forward towards that goal. Bravo and keep up the good work!

I am curious to see one that can pickup a pin as well :) perhaps a sewing robot arm.

I agree with Erebus. Over the last 25 years I've seen examples of this technology all looking exactly the same. The small difference is that today processing power is much greater and much cheaper so you can obviously have a lot more data points collect and process information quicker. I would imaging with the computational power we have a robotic arm could pickup a pin and not a large octagon block (I will even go as far as to say that there is a reason why they use straight edge objects).

This is a good stepping stone to design even customised hands for specific tasks. How about hands with more fingers ? :)

Tactile feedback is a giant step forward. Consider telepresence of surgeons, or thinking smaller, remote repair of machine. Consider dangerous tasks where human hands are in harms way which could be replaced with this technology. And imagine the next logical step, replacing missing hands.

There is actually improvement. I have seen before but there was always jerkiness.

That was exactly my reaction. As a prosthetic, it would be very valuable. The question then is, how to connect the proper nerves to make it work.

Sorry Sylvie, but I have to concur with Erebus comment. Although a great excersise of thechonolgy deployment. It fails to raise on the innovation side to revolutionary, since it requires complete human guidance. Show me some fluid autonomous motion, then we will be drooling over the posibilities. IMHO ;-)

Suck kind of a robotic hand is a great boon for people who have paralyzed arms. The video is showing this robotic arm as an add on. Can this hand work independently say for a person who has his hands cut off by an accident?
