Iraq Vet is now More Machine than Man

Iraq war veteran Sgt. Juan Arredondo can grasp tennis balls and door knobs with his left hand again, now that he's been outfitted with a bionic hand that has flexible fingers.





The 27-year-old former soldier, who lost his left hand in 2005 during a patrol, is one of the first recipients of the i-LIMB.

"To have this movement, it's -- it's amazing," Arredondo said Monday as he showed off the limb made by Scotland-based Touch Bionics. "It just gets me more excited about now, about the future."

The prosthetic hand is made of semi-translucent plastics.

Five individual motors power the fingers, allowing the person to grasp round objects. The hand's gestures are made possible through electrode plates that detect electrical signals generated in the remaining muscles in the amputated limb.

The i-LIMB can be covered with flexible material to mimic the look of human skin, called cosmesis.

Arredondo, of San Antonio, likened the limb to the bionics in "Star Wars" and "Terminator." "My son, he goes nuts about it," he said.

that's almost worth getting your hand blown up for. Coolest thing since the NES Power Glove!

Remember when Freddy Krueger wore the power glove and fucked that guy from Road Trip up?

Sort of like when Kieth jerked it with the hand that had fallen asleep, to see if he could close his eyes and fool himself into believing that a robot sex-slave was jacking him off?

That manoeuvre is called "the stranger". It's a personal favorite.
