This story has details about an artificiual hand developed at University of Southampton.
[They have a good space department there - where I have given several lectures over the years !]

This artificial hand (or a advanced version of it) could well be used on a Mars or Moon rover to pickup and 'handle' rocks and other specimens of interest.
