Ultra Fast Reacting Robot Hand Can Catch Anything

This is a video of a robotic hand developed at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) that can move and adjust itself to catch any object thrown at it in less than five hundredths of a second. "But can it give handjobs?" The Flash, ladies and gentlemen! The only man alive who wants a handjob at the speed of light. Obviously, I won't be tossing this sucker anything but live grenades. Hopefully it can't throw back. You ever have the dream where you drop a live grenade at your feet? "No." What about the one where you're about to have sex but can't get it up? "That is not a dream." NOPE, IT SURE F***ING ISN'T.

Keep going for the video. It can catch a shampoo bottle!

Thanks to Luke, who just laughed when I told him to toss me a beer. Dammit Luke, I was being serious.
