Using a sacrificial layer method we have developed a microrobot arm that can be 
individually controlled. The arm consists of an 'elbow', a 'wrist', and a hand 
with 2-4 fingers. The robot is controlled by each joint individually. We 
increased (or decreased) the potential a joint by steps of 50 mV until the 
intended degree of bending was achieved.


Video of the robot available at the site.

Science has an ariticle on its web site if you have a subscription.  Have not 
the url to hand but it is available from slashdot.org
