UK Man Testing Game-Inspired Bionic Prosthetic Arm #MetalGearSolid @openbionics
The Open Bionics team – known for other fashionable and kids superhero-prosthetics – are in the news again, this time with the story of James Young, who several years ago was in a train accident in London Docklands. Fast-forward and he’s now the proud owner of a myoelectric robotic prosthesis and tester for The Phantom Limb Project. The bionic arm includes many features like a USB charging port (I’m guessing a Type A Jack) and digital watch (operating system unknown). Not pictured, a small quadcopter can be mounted to the shoulder and operated via the arm somehow – see a picture of the multirotor device here. You can read more about James’s story here at the Daily Mail and keep track of the project via their website.
