    Thats awesome, getting better every year. The biggest issue is still powering these things, pretty tough to carry a 20lb Ni-Cad in your prosthesis but new flex cells will change that.

    I posted this TED Talk here before sometime ago. "Dean Kamen: The emotion behind invention." It's a 20 minute video about Why he had his team work on the arm.
