NAME: Bebionic 3
AUTHOR: RSLSteeper, a specialist in artificial limbs from the UK.
DESCRIPTION: The Bebionic 3 is the most sophisticated myo-electric hand ever created. The hand can interpret the electric impulses going through residual nerves of the patient and arrange the fingers into 14 different positions. The power of the grip varies according to the action but it can be delicate enough to handle a raw egg without breaking it. Amputees will finally be able to get the full usage of their hand back.
AMUSEMENT RATE: The prosthetics industry has seen major developments happening these past few years and the Bebionic 3 is one of them. This kind of technology can bring life-changing improvements to the life of millions of amputees. Terminator or Star Wars references immediately come to mind, and indeed, the hand seems to come out from a scifi movie. No matter how unnerving this bionic hand is, we’d better get used to see, and shake, more of these.
