New NSF Engineering Research Center to Pursue Ideal Mind–Machine Interface

Back to article | Note about images

Image of a University of Washington doctoral student interacting with a lifelike robotic hand.

University of Washington doctoral student Eric Rombokas interacts with a lifelike robotic hand that includes the same number of muscles and tendons as the human hand, allowing the possibility for a more seamless integration with the human nervous system. The robotic hand was built in the UW's Neurobotics Lab, which works on the interface between robotics and the human body. The group will be involved in the new NSF Engineering Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering.
