"That arm will be useful defence when you throw your coffee over your shoulder in someone's face."

Made me think of this - not really related but funny as hell.

Credit to this guy, he's worked really hard with the developers to get it working this well.

It's most assuredly awesome, Tiredofnicks! Very cool post! I would FAP with it yet, or use a sharp objec like a knife with it--doesn`t look like the control is subtle enough yet--but I have a feeling it won`t be long!

Xprez: It doesn't really work that way, I have to admit I chose the title for impact as you have to do with the character limit.

The thought part is that the amputee can still send signals through nerves that doesn`t go anywhere anymore, and this prosthetic (combined with surgery to make the signals clearer) interprets them as the actions a normal limb would do. Still takes some training but yeah, you see the results.

I know, nerding out to a comment that was likely a joke to begin with, but gosh darn it, this is awesome!
