Why doesn't Misty have grasping appendages?

Grasping is very expensive and highly problematic for random, general-purpose environments. Current grasping solutions are highly customized to specific tasks and are industrially priced. For grasping to be effective at a consumer price point, costs for grasping would have to come down into the few-hundred-dollar range and there’s nothing like that in any academic (or commercial) lab that we’re aware of. Misty Robotics will continue to research and experiment to deliver consumer-affordable grasping in general purpose robots and will strive to be among the first to deliver that to market when it's feasible.
