Typing out an email or setting up a pot of coffee are things we can do bleary eyed in the morning, but the movements our hands have to make to complete such tasks are truly complex, human skills.

Researchers at the University of Washington are inching closer to making that a reality. Their software system, dubbed the Adroit manipulation system, is powering a robot hand that is considered one of the most highly…
