David over at Boing-Boing spotted this jaw-dropping video of an experimental robot arm doing things that scare the bejeesus out of me. David writes:

Researchers from the Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory at the University of Tokyo presented this incredible video of a high-speed robotic hand at the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation. The laboratory’s Web site has many more videos related to this project, called Sensor Fusion. Sensor Fusion: High Speed Robots

For my money, the most impressive stuff is around 2:22, near the end.
