    The device, worn around one's wrist, works essentially like two extra fingers adjacent to the pinky and thumb.

    The robot, which the researchers have dubbed "supernumerary robotic fingers," or "SR fingers," consists of actuators linked together to exert forces as strong as those of human fingers during a grasping motion.
