Image Cache: The world’s largest orthopedics event is happening right now in Leipzig, Germany. From prosthetic legs that enable people to run faster to exoskeletons that can make the disabled walk again, OT World 2016 is showcasing some of the most futuristic inventions you’ve ever seen. They’re also creepy as hell.
Science is catching up to science fiction. Last year a paralysed man walked again after cell treatment bridged a gap in his spinal cord. Dozens of people have had bionic eyes implanted, and it may also be possible to augment them to see into the infra-red or ultra-violet. Amputees can control bionic limb implant with thoughts alone.
The stock market is tanking, North and South Korea are on the brink of war and a cartoon character from a dystopian future is the most popular candidate for US President at the moment. But don’t despair. While most things are garbage, there are some things in the world that aren’t. Like this adorable kid who just got his own high-tech bionic hand.
The dream of the cyborg is coming true at an exhilarating rate. As humans gets better and better at making machines, we keep attaching those machines to our bodies to make ourselves better humans. It seems at times that the only question left is if we can put a human brain in a robotic frame. Actually, it’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when.
Amputees may one day regain actual feeling thanks to DARPA and researchers at Case Western University, who have created what we thought was once only possible in science fiction. As apart of DARPA’s Reliable Neural-Interface Technology (RE-NET) program, CWRU’s flat interface nerve electrode (FINE) system has demonstrated that it can provide enough sensation to give amputees the ability to feel their way around, just like Luke Skywalker.
The i-Limb bionic hand has always been a favourite around here, and it keeps getting better. Today, Touch Bionics announced that they’ve enhanced their incredibly capable prosthesis with the i-Limb Pulse. It’s got better gripping action, thanks to Bluetooth-enabled software.
