Those of you looking to take your first steps on the road to the Dark Side (or those of you in need of a prosthetic hand) are in luck! Bebionic intends to have a myo-electric hand available for purchase by June (Akihabara News). This false hand has a wrist unit that is capable of rotation, flexion and extension-the first ever commercially available unit to do so.

This bionic hand can be covered in a variety of natural-ish silicon skins that, they claim, mimics the anatomy of a natural hand. The skin definitely still looks fake, but it is a good fake. I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference without actually stopping to observe for some length of time. This is one big step closer to commercially available cyborg-ization treatments. I can't wait for the full-body rig.
