Createk Engineering Lab, in partnership with Université de Sherbrooke and Exonetik, have created a robotic third arm that comes in handy when there are tasks to be completed. The arm is supported by a strap mounted at the the user’s waist and is operated by a joystick operated by a third party.
Createk third-arm: Supernumerary robotic arm powered by magnetorheological clutches and hydrostatic transmission. Fast enough to compensate for human motions while being safe for physical human-robot interaction.
The amazing thing about this arm is that it can not only gently pick an apple off of a tree, but it can deliver a punch strong enough to break through a wall.
