Cyberhand to Shake Up Prosthetics

Here is a worthy use of time and money. This project seeks to build a prosthetic hand that is as close as possible to the real thing.

Quoted from the website:

1. be felt by an amputee as the lost natural limb delivering her/him a natural sensory feedback by
means of the stimulation of some specific afferent nerves;

2. be controlled in a very natural way by processing the efferent neural signals coming from the
central nervous system (reducing the discomfort of the current EMG-based control prosthesis).
For videos, pics, and other information, have a look at the link above.
