Improved Quality of Life through an Advanced Prosthesis




I was looking at a a robotic company called DARPA. This group are making advancements in many fields concerning robotics or cybernetics. In this YouTube clip we see a man with a prosthetic limb. The technology is obviously in its infancy, but what encouragement. Funding can to make this a more beneficial thing for people who lose limbs. We've imagined such things in the past through t.v. science fiction, but now we are looking at reality. In the above clip we see a man using his prosthetic arm to pick up eggs from a carton and replace them in another. He manages to do this, but not with the confidence and ability of a normal organic limb. However, advancements in the future will surely come about.
