According to Popular Science, DOMO is the first robot to know its own strength, meaning its embedded elastic actuators (muscles) can detect exactly “how hard it’s gripping an object.” Short video after the jump.

The actuators aren’t completely rigid; the joints give bit, much like ours do. Because of this flexibility, DOMO feels an object pushing back against it and fine-tunes its grip like a good handshake — firm, not ferocious.
