These intricately designed toy robot hands created by Craft House go on sale tomorrow in Japan. They have five jointed fingers that can grab small objects like fruits and ping pong balls. This version is called the Melissa Hands, and they're the successor to a popular previous version called God's Hands. If you're in Japan, you can buy them online for about $600.
