Rethink Robotics, the firm behind the Baxter manufacturing robot, has released a one-armed version, called Sawyer, capable of more dexterous work.
It is designed for production lines that require a gentle touch such as manufacturing circuit boards and chips.
Sawyer is lighter than Baxter but like its predecessor will work safely alongside humans who can teach it to perform simple tasks.
The robot will sell in the United States, China, Japan and Europe.
