Researchers have developed a microscopic robot hand, made of silicon and plastic balloons which could help perform surgery and defuse bombs.  The “microhand” is so tiny that when clenched into a fist it measures a little over 1 millimeter across, or roughly as thick as a dime. Meanwhile commercially, The Japanese consumer electronics giant, which sells products under the Panasonic name in the U.S., is experimenting with ways to bring to market two prototype robots that can help the elderly or people with disabilities, company President Fumio Ohtsubo said at the Ceatec tech trade show. The event is taking place this week here, near Tokyo. The first robot can be described as a human forklift. Its two pairs of arms–one set to lift a person’s legs and the other set for the head and torso–can lift a person off the ground and into another room or onto a bed.
