We've been thinking hard about wear and tear on EMU gloves, and you'll be glad to know we have a prototype solution in the works. It's called the Mmod Resistant Handling Aid for Normal Dexterity (MR HAND). Here is one of our technicians modeling MR HAND.

Boy is MR HAND cool! It has a small fusion reactor cell (hence the dark glasses) to power the electromechanical actuators which are controlled directly by your amplified brain waves.

We are having some problems however when it picks up the other EVs strong thoughts -- err... still some development to do. So take care and think good thoughts out there.
