Text from Robot Slide Series insert -
"This hand was developed by Raiko Tomovic at the University of Belgrade, yugoslavia. It was one of the earliest attempts to equip an artificial limb with a sense of touch. The fingertips had pressure-sensitive switches that were activated by contact with an object. On loan from Thomas Callaban, Cambridge, Massachussetts"
