#1404: Squeezescreens

Humans are partly defined by our opposable thumbs.

Today’s invention is to equip robots with similar functionality in the form of a cellphone with two touch-screens.

When a robot selects this form of manipulator, the screens can detect and react to a range of different, soft materials (eg a foam rubber sphere will produce different screen imprints, when squeezed, than a grape).
