Cyberware NOW: The "Luke" Arm

without comments

I found another video report about a “current-day” Cyberarm. It’s amazing what “we” can do today. Now process this thing on to a designer to give it adecent style, add some of the hydraulics of the exoskeleton mentioned elsewhere here on cyberpunk2020.de, and we’re good to go ­čÖé

Here’s the Link to the Video

Cyberpunk Tech 9: Cyberarm

with one comment

You got to watch this amazing movie! He can pick up a screw with this arm! It has enough feedback for the user to drink from a glass bottle without breaking it.

Handprothese mit Gef├╝hl

with one comment

Auf dem Weg zum Cyberarm macht die Wissenschaft Fortschritte. Wie Spiegel Online meldet, k├Ânnen jetzt zwei Menschen mit der Handprothese etwas f├╝hlen:

US-Forscher haben bei Mitchell und einem 54-j├Ąhrigen die Nerven so umoperiert, dass die Empfindungen der verlorenen H├Ąnde auf der Brusthaut sp├╝rbar wurden.

Daf├╝r lass ich mir die Hand noch nicht abhacken – ich warte mindestens bis die Cyberfinger einzeln erh├Ąltlich sind…

Movie of a real live Cyberarm – Cyberpunk Tech 6

with 2 comments

 

“The antique arm whined as he reached for another mug. It was a Russian military prosthesis, a seven-function force-feedback manipulator, cased in grubby pink plastic.”
— William Gibson, Neuromancer

Festo, a german corp, has a movie of a really cool hydraulic cyberarm on their site. Its so cool I want one. The movie indicates that the arm has enough tactile response to write on a touchscreen.

CYBERARM!

I found the link on lo-fi-samurai‘s blog, which is very worth the time you spend there. He was the one I stole both the link and the quote from – I only added William Gibsons name and the title of the book.
