    Bionic Hand

    Talk about cool technology. Video in the link.

    Last year, Patrick, a 24-year-old Austrian, decided to have his dysfunctional hand amputated and replaced with a bionic hand. He lost the use of his left hand after being electrocuted at work.

    Here he demonstrates the extra movement his new bionic hand has given him, opening a bottle and tying his shoelaces, and tests a prototype hand which will give him additional wrist movement.

    Amazing what technology can do these days. Wonder how that will look like in a couple of years time. Not sure if I'd have the courage to make that kind of decision though.
    Could we see Darth Vader becoming a reality?
