Anyone who can link me up to a good source regarding any of the above is asked to do so.

I offer my eternal gratitude to any who complies, with a possibility for an Internet.

I'm not sure what you're looking for this for. In the absence of guidance, I provide you with this link to the .pdf of a paper on an autonomous robot which detects and collects slugs for digestion as a source of power. It discusses some of the problems the creators had in properly identifying and physically grasping the slugs.

Hope this meets your needs.

On the offchance you were not kidding, I would give my firstborn and three camels for that PDF.

I am looking for information regarding the history and different operating mechanisms of grasping end of arm tools, although I can settle for modern examples and just figure out the later myself.

Oops! I meant this link (www.cse.msu.edu/~mckinley/920/Spring-2007/owen-holland-slugbot.pdf) to the .pdf, but I forgot to linkify my text. It will auto-download the file for you.

ETA: Camels and internets are always appreciated around here. Got plenty of firstborns, though. ;-)

Well I went to google and just typed in robot suit and got a few hits. The one I like the most is this one (http://www.zimbio.com/Robots/articles/22/Army+Develops+Robot+Suit+Enemy+Says+Aww+crap) A suit that can lift 200lbs effortlessly, can walk, run, and climb stairs. But only has a 40 min battery life

There are others just go to google and enter robot suit or variant.

you should take a look at asimo, I'm sure he has a home page somewhere.

those annoying robot pets have all sorts of neat stuff in them.

car assembly lines use all kinds of robotics.
