This guy's ability to take something that would devastate most anyone in the world, and use it as a chance to highlight his own mad skills is truly inspiring.

Guy Pops Out False Eye to Prove He Didn't See Other Customer

It can be hard to prove to someone that you just made a simple human error, especially when they're a stranger in line at the store. With this guy, he had a winning strategy for showing this other guy that he didn't see him. Sometimes fellow customers aren't so understanding.

The arm was created by Enabling the Future, which has a chapter at Sienna College in Albany, New York. For its first project the Siena e-NABLE group made an Iron Man-themed hand for 5-year-old Jack Carder in Ohio.



In this case, nine-year-old Karissa Mitchell's (who was born without a right hand and most of her wrist) mother reached out to the group on campus, Siena College's director of marketing and communications said.

"She's watched the movie at least 100 times. We sing the songs all the time. We even have a karaoke machine that's 'Frozen'-themed," said Karissa's mother. The prosthetic was built using a 3-D printer and is comprised of 30 parts (it took near 30 hours to make).

To help Karissa achieve her dream of becoming a Disney princess, the team used "a pretty transparent ice blue color filament and added snowflakes to the forearm and her name with an Elsa crown on the cuff," said Alyx Gleason, the project lead and president of Siera e-NABLE. The arm also came with an Olaf LED light source.

Anyone who is in need of an arm or hand is encouraged to reach out to Siena e-NABLE.

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.

Police say prosthetic penises and fake urine are being used by miners to fool drug tests. 

Sales are booming for products to beat drug testing, which are legally available on the internet. Some products can be purchased for $70 (£35) and come with accessories including heat pads and strap-on devices for men to wear during supervised testing.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today allowed marketing of the DEKA Arm System, the first prosthetic arm that can perform multiple, simultaneous powered movements controlled by electrical signals from electromyogram (EMG) electrodes.

EMG electrodes detect electrical activity caused by the contraction of muscles close to where the prosthesis is attached. The electrodes send the electrical signals to a computer processor in the prosthesis that translates them to a specific movement or movements.
