    7 Finger Robot

    "The device, worn around one’s wrist, works essentially like two extra fingers adjacent to the pinky and thumb. The robot, which the researchers have dubbed "supernumerary robotic fingers," or "SR fingers," consists of actuators linked together to exert forces as strong as those of human fingers during a grasping motion."

    Robot tech, YES.

    Iraq is a country divided. Battles are being waged not just by ISIS and between Sunnis and Shiites, but within the groups themselves. In June, Iraq’s leading Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, issued a call to arms, urging his followers to join forces with the government’s military in order to stop the march of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Simultaneously, another of Iraq’s foremost political leaders, Muqtada al-Sadr, resurrected his Mahdi Army, one of the most experienced and largest battle groups in the country. Al-Sadr refuses to let the government have any control of his forces.

    Reportage by Getty Images photographer Lynsey Addario traveled throughout the country to witness how these tensions are affecting the Shiite population.
