We've brought you sex robots, bartender robots, swine flu robots, and even break-dancing robots.

Here's one that may not look like a humanoid, but is no less graceful and awe-inspiring: the salami sorting robot from ABB Robotics.

ABB Robotics
says of its creation,

High-speed ABB FlexPicker robots equipped with specially developed
grippers are making sure that Peperami salamis are packaged at the highest
cycle rates at Unilever's plant in Ansbach, Germany.

The robots are fitted with triple grippers which are able to pick up three randomly positioned salami snacks one after the other from a conveyor belt in a one step process, and place them individually in a rollstock machine.

The fun really starts rolling at around 50 seconds into the clip.
