The finger mechanism equipped with an omnidirectional driving roller is shown in this video. The omnidirectional driving roller has two active rotational axes at the touching point. The finger mechanism with this roller can manipulate the grasped object with any arbitrary directional axes. A prototype model has been developed and basic motion of the finger has been confirmed though the experiments.
