The $50 cyborg hand!

My friend George, who’s a gamer, a game developer, and an all-round techie genius, sent me the most amazing link last night! It’s a video clip about a man born without a left hand. In the clip, this man demonstrates the difference between his $42,000 [yes, I didn’t put in those extra zeros by mistake] prosthetic hand, and a $50 dollar one created using a 3D printer. And the $50 hand wins …hands down. 🙂

Thanks, George! This is the most amazing development yet.

cheers
