HOLY MOLY A BIONIC HAND

The world's most advanced, commercially available, bionic hand has clinched the UK's top engineering prize.

The i-LIMB, a prosthetic device with five individually powered digits, beat three other finalists to win this year's MacRobert award.

The technology has been fitted to more than 200 people, including US soldiers who lost limbs during the war in Iraq.

The device started life in Scotland in 1963 as part of a project to help children affected by Thalidomide.

The complex device finally went on sale in July 2007. It is produced by a company called Touch Bionics based in Mid Calder, Livingston


LOOKS AMAZING WATCH THE VID

I saw it. At first, i thought that the black plasic hand was the bionic one. Oh, technology seemed to slow a bit... Holy christ, then the camara zoomed in on the other one which I thought was real. Wow.

Possibilites are endless - if they can develop nerve endings in the hands people will be able to feel again - but i think they need to use something better than plastic - maybe metal - terminator style
