Bionic Arm

At the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab near Baltimore, MD, scientists are developing prosthetic arms which will interface with both movement- and sensory-based nerves, allowing the motorized limbs to be controlled by the human brain.

 

This particular arm, which articulates 22 different ways, has a motherboard in its hand and can do 50-lb curls.
