London Man Fitted with Bionic Arm - it has a torch

Recommended Posts

That's pretty cool if not a little flashy, heck, it even has LEDs. The technology behind it seems a bit rudimentary, but give it a decade or two and they should have it mostly ironed out.

I wouldn't mind having an arm similar to that, though only if it was able to perfectly (or near perfectly) mimic the movements of a human hand.

 

But I don't think our knowledge of prosthetics is that far yet.

In any case, it is a good step forward. I hope to see many things like this in my lifetime.

The future of Big Boss' arm is now.

 

 

It's even completely open-sourced. So if you need a mechanical arm fast and cheap: there you go.

Neato, though that doesn't mean I'm cutting off any limbs now... I'm not Gaige.

Wow, this guy's 19 and he's already got his own company and a revolutionary invention. Meanwhile my crowning achievements are building a solar system model in OpenGL and hitting a tight group on an archery target from 55m with a Recurve. large.png
