I forget where I saw this, but a team of students at a college (I think it was in ohio) designed automail for a cat, using the ideas of how automail should work from FullMetal Alchemist.

They used low-power servos, and connected the automail directly to the nerves where the limb was severed (by a car).

Amazingly, it worked just like in the show!! Fine motor skills and everything!

The arm felt no pain, but it moved! The cat didn't even know the difference.

The only reason it was disregarded as a permanent solution for limb replacement is that also, like in the show, there was immense pain upon connecting it, much like if you have your speakers turned up all the way, and then connect the signal. The pain was so intense, that no matter how many sedatives they gave the cat, she wouldn't stop meowing. It almost died, so the procedure couldn't be done on humans, but even so, automail really can work.[font=Arial]
