Coming soon: Cheap Bionic Limbs
« on: May 03, 2015, 02:43:16 pm »

This is cool. A lot more companies are making bionic limbs and prosthetics that are either affordable, customized or both. The combination of those two properties is only possible due to 3D printing as otherwise making such small batches of stuff would be too expensive.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Well if these become more advanced and actually start acting like real arms I might have to make true on that joke I keep telling people and replace one of my arms with a robotic one.
