The Duke of Cambridge is used to shaking hands, but perhaps none quite like this....
Prince William was greeted with a robotic hand made by a 3D printer during a visit to the International Business Festival at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool.
The Prince also got the chance to have a look around a driverless pod.
His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge is visiting Liverpool today.
As well as attending the International Business Festival, Prince William will officially open James' Place - a new centre for men experiencing suicidal thoughts.
