Homemade bionic hands

Homemade bionic hands.

Sun Jifa, from China’s northern Jilin province, lost both his hands when a fishing explosive went off prematurely in his home nine years ago.

Unable to afford expensive prosthetic arms at local hospitals, Sun bought a low-grade pair which proved near-useless for routine farm work and caring for his wife and three daughters.

Eager to get his hands back, Sun spent the next eight years crafting his own steel bionic pair from scratch with little direction but his own intuition.

The results have changed his life.
