The Shadow Dexterous Hand is the most advanced 5-fingered robotic hand in the world.
Offering unprecedented accuracy, The Hand can manipulate tools and objects with greater precision than ever before. Our technology opens up new avenues for research in robotics and artificial intelligence, and enables the refinement of existing technologies.
Each finger has an independent side-to-side motion for impressive in-hand manipulation and other movements with advanced dexterity
The Lite series gives you more flexibility to meet your project needs. Choose from the Lite, Extra Lite and Super Lite versions of our robot hands.

Intuitive control in the palm of your Hand.
The Shadow Glove is fully optimised to work with our Dexterous Hands, accurately mimicking your movements to provide unparalleled precision with minimal training.
Produced by SynTouch, the BioTac is a revolutionary tactile sensor capable of detecting the full range of sensory information that human fingers can identify, including forces, micro-vibrations, and temperature.
Our Hands are more mobile when attached to an arm for extendable reach. We can provide each Hand with a safe and flexible 6 Degrees of Freedom (DOF) industrial robotic arm from Universal Robots.
