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.
