That was amazing! I was a bit skeptical until they showed the video of the guy using it to eat, after just the first 10 hours of having it on! Looks like it has a lot of potential

That's awesome! Dean Kamen also sponsors FIRST Lego League where kids get to build robots and compete. My sons do that and it's a great way to get started in the robotics world if anyone is interested.

This stuff is really quite interesting. They've got some stuff working with nerve endings (like automail would lol), but also with direct brain control... they've also managed to graft prostheses right to the bone, too, so that people don't have to worry about limbs wiggling around or slipping out of place... and they're even managing to get some touch sensitivity working (so that you can tell how tightly you're holding something, for instance.) The motions aren't as good, though, mainly because the human hand is really zarking complicated.

More articles:
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/20...ionic-hand.html
http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2010/01/...fischman-text/5 (this one's really good)

It's really cool how they can help people with technology these days...

The advances in technology are nothing short of amazing! This can give amputees such hope when perfected! biggrin.gif

Firstly, if that happened that's so crule to the cat it makes me sick, I'm against animal testing, and to test when it would cause the lifeform that much agoney, I'm actually surprised it was even legal and tbh im sceptical it even happened, are there any legitimate links around? XD I havn't heard of such a break through in prosthetics

To add to my sceptisim, not only do you have all the thing about the nerves and such to link, is that enough? In a real arm you have muscles that require energy to move them, did this thing have any sort of power supply? I didn't read all the replys so sozzle if thats been awnsered, and lastly, we have such a thing as anaesthetic so why was the cat concious when the nerves were been attatched? And in all practicality I can't see any cat staying still enough to undergo that sort of procedeure

Forsaken Love - one cat story right here. Though not the original story (this thread is years old remember) it is about a crippled cat being given the chance to walk again. This is NOT the same as the "auto-mail" story but its certainly about the developments they are making.
