Buy Bebionic Hand from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

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.
