Terminator Arm

This guy has a really advanced prosthetic arm. Check out the videos!

Terminator Arm, The Most Advanced Prosthetic To Date


Wait -- I didn't tell it to do that.
I don't ever want to lose an arm. But if I do, I want it to be the right one (I'm left handed), and I want it to be to a crocodile. But not before I gouge one of his eyes out to wear on a necklace. The is the Bebionic3, an advanced prosthetic so refined it can actually be used to write. Impressive, but is it as advanced as *pulling hand out of pocket* THIS?! "That's a hook." YAAAAAR!
The Bebionic3 is a myoelectric prosthetic hand that uses residual neuro-muscular signals from your muscles to operate a number of precise functions.
Featuring a range of 14 hand positions and grips, the Bebionic3 is also offered with a skin-tone glove that approximates the appearance of a real hand.

All it needs is a laser and a built in fire extinguisher and it could be considered complete.

Wow, I love to see advances in technology like this.

But shouldn't you have posted it in the gadgets thread? Christmas is coming. (Poor taste, sorry).

You`d need to be careful spanking the monkey with that sucker. The potential for things to go horribly wrong doesn`t bear thinking about...

I've never understood why, if you lose your arm or leg, you'd want a replacement that is just as good. I'd want an arm that can bend both ways at the elbow, rotate freely through 360 degrees, have a built in 1tb flash drive, be able to crush steel, have a heating element to brew tea, & c. I would want my replacement arm to be much, much better than this boring old flesh and bone thing...

Same here man, I`d want to be Steve Austin at an absolute minimum. I`d want an arm that was like, as strong as one off a mechanical digger, so I could punch bad guys and they`d be flying over tall buildings and their heads would be knocked clean off when I punched them and stuff and I would also be able to lift crashed cars off people and things.

And I`d also need it to make that noise that Steve Austin`s arm made. TchhChhhChhhing or whatever it was. I had a Steve Austin action figure when I was a kid, it was awesome, he was carrying a V8 engine block with his bionic arm, although I could never figure out why he didn`t just tip over as it would surely overbalance him?

Sorry, I didn`t take my medication today. It`s all good now, I`m in the happy place.
