New robotic hand 'can feel'


news.bbc.co.uk

A team of scientists from Italy and Sweden has developed what is believed to be the first artificial hand that has feeling.

It has been attached to the arm of a 22-year-old man who lost his own hand through cancer.

Researchers say it works by connecting human nerve endings with tiny electronic sensors.

EDIT: Found the research developer for the arm. Apparently this thing is being funded by DARPA.

Very impressive. Some of the related news articles are already calling it the "Luke hand" from Star Wars.

Just need to cover it with some latex and get it into the commercial market. I don't think it will be all that many more years until cybernetic replacement limbs will be a normal part of our lives.
