VIDEO: A Real-Life TERMINATOR Hand...!

This is another example of real-life influenced from sci-fi.... 
Below is a demo video of a fully functional robotic hand that not only has articulate dexterity, but also can withstand high impact blows from a hammer...
Developed by Skynet the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the Cyberdyne Systems German Aerospace Center (DLR), the fully functional anthropomorphic robot hand can withstand major collisions and even direct pounding with a hammer, baseball bat or metal pipe, making it an essential part of future indestructible humanoid robots. 
Seriously? ...withstand a beating from a hammer, baseball bat or metal pipe...?! 
I don't know about you but that's pretty 'effed up. When would that even be an issue unless this robot was designed and built to hunt humans....!
