The last time we saw Bebionic’s V3 prosthetic hand in action was in a sterile promotional video showing it doing everything from buttering up a slice of bread to manipulating a Rubik’s Cube. It was rather impressive, but this clip is even moreso since it demonstrates how life-changing the prosthetic hand can actually be in a real-world situation.
Nigel Ackland lost his arm in an accident six years ago, and even though he was fitted with a V3 just last November, he’s already able to use it to help tie his shoes, deal cards, and even make a cup of coffee while navigating his kitchen.
It’s not only surprising how capable the hand is but also how quickly Nigel’s been able to learn to rely on it for all the day-to-day mundane tasks he only recently wasn’t able to do. [YouTube via The Awesomer]
