This Robot Hand has a 1ms Vision Reaction

From LenFiorenz

We’ve got to get this hispeed visual acuity technology into digital cameras and improve autofocusing even further! On this robot hand, the vision reacts in 1 millisecond at an object moving in front of it, calculates its current position and catches it. All with only 3 fingers. No “shutter lag” here.

It can twirl a pen between its fingers, the way you often see bored students do in class; dribble a ball; throw [presumably an angry bird]; and catch. Teach it to play ping pong and we humans are toast. And, oh, it can also tie a knot in a rope one-handed.
