In the past few years, we have covered plenty of robots that can grasp objects of varying shapes and sizes. Festo’s DHEF is quite special though. It is inspired by chameleons’ tongue that can grasp unaligned objects. It can handle fragile items gently.

This adaptive shape gripper can handle items efficiently, with precision, when combined with a pneumatic drive. It has a max speed of 120mm/s.
