Check out this video of Dean Kamen's new prosthetic arm. (He's the inventor of the Segway.)

Even cooler, he named it the "Luke" arm, after the Star Wars character.

Very cool. I hope it's free to the service men.

Man, that is so awesome! I live for these kinds of stories!

Between this invention, the robot exo-skeletons for the paralized and all the brain-controlled electronics that are coming out, the world for handicapped people is not going to be recognizable in 10 years.

I want to see Stephen Hawkings wired up with some of this stuff!


Very cool. I hope it's free to the service men.

Yeah, ditto that

You know, if humanity could stay out of its own way and focus more energy towards beneficial breakthroughs as opposed to killing everything in sight, we could pull off more of thesemarvelous technological accomplishments.
