GM Lends a Helpful Hand.

Yeah technology has come a long way. From the light-bulb to a flat panel LCD, engineers have figured out ingenious ways to make technology better, lighter, stronger and more useful. It has come the time that we use technology to create a world of cyborg’s! All kidding aside, GM has revealed their “Robo-Glove” which will help workers when it comes to “hands on” work.

The Robo-Glove weighs about a pound each and is supposed to enable its user to hold tools with 1/3 – 1/2 more force running on a standard lithium-ion battery. The goal is to aid workers in being comfortable while holding their tools for a long time and reduce the risk of stress injury.

“We are continuously looking for ways to improve safety and productivity on the shop floor,” Komin said. “Our goal is to bring this technology to the shop floor in the near future.” Check out the video to see the glove in action!
