The Luke Arm

My hat is off to Dean Kamen the inventor of the Segway machine has been working on replacement arms and hands for Vets that have been dismembered in this yet another stupid war (Sorry everyone I has a very strong Distain for war or anything of the like).

Dean has been working on the "Luke Arm" that has been named after The Star Wars Char... and (Damn I loved Star wars) anyways from what I see this is possibly the best robotics that I have seen done yet to date and trust me I am a Robotic Nerd since I am a Mechanical Engineer......

Oh sure he see's $$ in this however it is the quality of the work that has been produced so far makes the $$ a well earned one and for that to come from me is not just something I would just say to say it... (I am the first to cut something down) but I read and watched the video several times and I really could not debunk Dean on this one...
