DEKA ARM

FrontPageIn case you haven’t heard of this already, here is Dean Kamen and DEKA Research’s prosthetic arm.

The arm was designed for a pentagon funded program called Revolutionizing Prosthetics.

This revolutionary arm allows users to do normal every day tasks that were impossible before.  The Arm, nicknamed Luke after Star Wars, allows one to open doors, pick up objects and even open bottles with pop tops.
