Robot Hands Jamming on a Bouncy Ball

Here's further proof that eventually, robots will become our masters and we'll just serve as food for them, or, if we're lucky, we'll be their pets. In this video, a series of extremely high-precision robotic hands manipulate various objects (including bouncing one of those super-bouncy balls crazy fast, and doing the twirling-a-pencil trick).

Let's just hope our robot overlords use their mega-powerful hands to gently pet us.
