Dean Kamen jumps from inventing the Segway to inventing a cutting edge Prosthetic Arm internally dubbed "Luke" (Star Wars).
Dean Kamen demonstrated the Deka Luke prosthetic arm tonight in the Colbert Report.
Kamen started the project on request of the U.S. military. This arm is pretty amazing and is already in use.

You can watch the segment in the video clip below that also features short snippets of real use of the artificial arm. The full episode is available on the Colbert Nation site. There is also an interesting high-tech arm prosthetic available from Austrian company Otto Bock.
