Cyborg Day – Boy gets a Robot Hand

In other cyborg-related news, a boy from Berkshire, England who was born without his left hand has been granted an actual bionic hand, thanks to a £35k sponsorship from Mercedes. It has nerve inputs which means he can control it with his own muscles, and actually manipulate objects. It looks just like something out of Deus Ex. And what does he do with one of the most technologically advanced prosthetic hands, of which less than one hundred exist the entire world? Plays videogames, of course. Check out the video of it here, its a ridiculously impressive piece of engineering.
