A robot manufacturing company has developed a device that looks and functions like a real human limb.

Japan-based Squse Company Ltd. has created an eerily life-like robotic hand called the Robot Hand H-Type. It is powered by a series of actuators and has multiple joints and movable polycarbonate bones. The robotic hand, which is covered with silicon rubber that gives it a skin-like look, can lift and move small objects. The company says that the hand will mostly find its use in industrial applications.

Here’s a video demo:
