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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
