Nintendo ever protective of its business, successfully pulled off a banana peel assault mission on a Japanese business that was trying to scrape together some extra yen by simulating the iconic Mario Kart, in real life. If there's one thing the go kart business MariCar likely learned, it's that you don't go to battle with the damn titan of brands.

And now, for something that isn't holiday related. Unless of course, you want to add this to your Christmas wish list. In which case, this is very holiday related.

Square Enix, Eidos Montreal, and Open Bionics released this promotional video, which showcases quite a bit of promising progress on their combined efforts to create a cybernetic hand just like the one Adam Jensen uses in Deus Ex



And, maybe the most excitingly Open Bionics plans to make the bionic hand open source, and available to download for anyone with a 3D printer. Plus, Open Bionics is in collaboration with Razer to create a finger-mapping system that will allow anyone else with all their working limbs intact, to still operate the hand remotely.

This builds off an earlier move by Konami, when the company built one fan a Metal Gear Solid-inspired prosthetic arm.
