This amazing mind controlled arm could be right out of Star Wars & has just been approved by the FDA, the first of it's kind. While there are plenty of muscle controlled prosthesis currently in research & development, this is the first to make it all the way through to market.
Dean Kamen’s incredible robot arm is good to go from SlashGear
Dean Kamen's robotic prosthetic limb, the DEKA Arm System, has been granted FDA approval, with the DARPA-sponsored project controlled by electrical signals from sensors where it meets the wearer's limb. Dubbed "Luke" - a reference to Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars universe - the arm is a huge step forward from existing mechanical prosthetics, allowing for more detailed uses like turning keys and pulling zippers. goo.gl/W3hMCt
FDA Approves First Prosthesis Controlled by Muscle Electrical Signals from Gizmodo
The DEKA Arm... took eight years to go from concept to approval. That's pretty quick considering the traditional "split hook" arm prosthesis has been in use since 1912.
In the FDA study, 90% of test subjects were able to quickly adapt to using the DEKA Arm for tasks that were impossible with traditional arm prosthetics, like brushing hair and using keys and zippers. goo.gl/B5SAs1
