Caption this: Google's giant I/O robot hand

A massive hydraulic arm wowed the crowd at a Google I/O party Wednesday night. But the poor robotic appendage really needs a good caption. Can you lend us a hand, readers?

"I need a good caption, and I need it now." Stephen Shankland/CNET

It's Google I/O 2013 time, and that means revamped Maps, subscription music, Glass apps, and giant robotic arms!

At a Google I/O fete Wednesday night in San Francisco, partygoers took in sights including a shirtless Billy Idol, an electronic dance floor, and multiple robots roaming the joint.

One of the most rockin' robots had to be this giant hydraulic hand that picked up and crushed 55-gallon drums. The arm looks like it's having a good enough time, but we think it needs a caption worthy of a hydraulic high five. So we're turning to you, our ever-creative readers. E-mail your caption ideas to crave at cnet dot com by noon PT Friday. Please put "robot caption" in the subject line and tell us your full name and where you're from. We'll post our favorites soon.

And to get you started, here's a caption from CNET copy editor Kelsey Adams: "But can it play bass?" Now, 3, 2, 1... go.
