Ever wonder what’s happening in the prosthetics world? How advanced prosthetic/ bionic body parts are, and what kind of things they can do already? Is the human leg or arm the ultimate benchmark against which these prosthetics are measured? Or can we go a step ahead and make something that is even better than the natural body parts?
Watch this video (which is a promotional video for a new game called Deus Ex) to see a guy, Rob Spence, who lost his right eye as a youngster, with a video camera installed in his right artificial eye (which was named one of the 50 best inventions of 2009). He travels around the world and meets people who have bionic body parts (eyes, arms, legs) who explain how their prosthetics function, and if they are even better than the “real thing”.
Note: Video contains a few graphic scenes.
