Luke Skywalker

A prosthetic arm named for Luke Skywalker, designed by the inventor of the Segway, and funded by DARPA is going to be commercially available later this year. It is one of the most advanced prosthetics ever developed, with electrodes attached to the limb that control the movements of the arm in response to signals from the wearer's muscles. The prosthetic also has much more flexibility and degrees of motion than a standard prosthetic with the joints of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist each independently powered and an additional four motors in the hand controlling the fingers.
