Advanced Bionic Arm

Losing an arm is never great, but it is nice to have the option to replace it with an advanced prosthetic limb. This bionic arm was inspired by the world of Metal Gear Solid. The Alternative Limb Project and Konami built this for gamer James Young.

The bionic arm has a 3D printed hand that receives signals from electrodes in a leather harness to form grips and gestures. The carbon fiber construction of this limb makes it lightweight. There are lights through the gaps in the arm, which can respond to a built-in heart rate sensor. The Bluetooth enabled wrist comes with a USB port. There is also a quadcopter in the shoulder which can be controlled one-handed using a bespoke controller. Pretty special, don’t you think?
