    I'd love to see how he uses it in action, how precise it is. I'd like to hear how the users of the arm percieves it working.

    I want an arm like Cyborg. If I can't have my arm amputated, I'll make a cover of tin foil and put that on my real arm. :P

    In before you end up like

    For the curious that is a shot from Tetsuo: The Iron Man
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096251/
    Possibly one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen.

    Can probably skip the sequel/remake thing though.

    Or fisting in erotic ways XD

    But that arm is damn cool. I'm always curious how bionic arms works. Are they connected to the nervous system?

    That varies massively depending upon a whole host of things.
    If it is below the elbow and there are still various muscle groups that got saved then you can key off them far more easily than other things.

    We are still a ways off nervous system full bore connections that you might want to replace a functional limb but there are options there for some measure of it.
    Some will be basic skull cap type deals (or something a bit more discrete you can hide in your hair). Not very accurate but can have basic commands easily enough with some training, and modern force feedback stuff* inside the prosthetic can prevent some mishaps. Not to mention gesture controls wherein turning and moving up might be a signal to do something.

    *to say nothing of https://media.ccc.de/v/32c3-7389-my_robot_will_crush_you_with_its_soft_delicate_hands


    Some will insert a chip on or in a brain. Accuracy goes up considerably with this sort of thing. This tends to be reserved for serious stuff (brain surgery is kind of a serious deal, leaving stuff in even more so, and doctors have that pesky "first, do no harm" thing) but is an option that many will pursue.
    Some might do mirror stuff so you have controls on the other hand and it mimics that or responds according to commands there.

    Some will tap into nerves at position of stump but this is also tricky to do well and you have a split between external and internal, internally tending to be more accurate by virtue of not having skin in the way but also having the problem of needing power which means either battery or wires through the skin.

    Micro surgery is meaning more and more nerve bundles can be sensed, and induction charging and wireless transmission also reduces issues with wires poking out of the skin, to say nothing of brain surgery in general also getting more proficient.

    *guess who is waiting for the moment things get better than nature to hack off a limb and have a robot arm*

    ACK! On second thought, forget the tin foil! Just leave my arm the way it is! :wacko:

    I recently had a discussion with a french prostethic engineer and there are basically two kind of technologies, intrusive and external. While the latter detects muscle activity, the former depends on neurals impulses, at the expense of surgery. Well, this genious boy didn't knew about Venom Snake. Now, I'm sure he does.

    All in all, impressive feat.

    makes me remember how nerves were attached to a permanent interface in fullmetal alchemist, and then the "automail" arm plugged into the interface for easy change/remove/maintenance.
    I wonder if one day it'll be possible or common. Much like all the "upgrade" in cyberpunk2077.

    I'm someone who,s very interested in prostetics, always been, there some very nice ones but thsi as an MGS fan is insane!!

    Imagine losing an arm man, how little would you need your new one to do in order to be satisfied, imagine almost regaining full member autonomy.

    Having had conversations with a great many men, young and old, over the years they would often say giving their member full autonomy was one of the worst decisions they ever made.
