UAV Flying Minicopter with Robotic Hand

A new remote-controlled helicopter is the first to have a robotic hand to pick objects off the ground and fly away with them.

The helicopter can fly up to 80 miles per hour while carrying objects that weight as much as 4.5 pounds. It could pick up bombs or packages from areas that are too steep or rough for ground-based robots to access. They could even become a form of automated courier in urban areas, moving small packages from point to point in cities where trucks would have a hard time getting around.

Its robotic hand has four fingers and runs on a single motor. The hand is made out of a material that helps to absorb shock and vibration, which helps the helicopter remain stable while hovering above the ground
