Robotic gripper has a feel for the shape of things

When you reach into your pocket and grab your keys, you can tell how they're oriented, without actually seeing them. Well, an engineering team at the University of California San Diego has created a soft robotic gripper that works in much the same way. It can build virtual 3D models of objects simply by touching them, and then proceed to manipulate those items accordingly...
