Submission + - Bionic hand makes it to market (

root_42 writes: "The BBC reports that a Scottish company has developed a bionic prosthetic hand, which is now going to market:

A highly functional bionic hand which was invented by a Scottish NHS worker has gone on the market. The thumb and fingers can move and grip just like a human hand and are controlled by the patient's mind and muscles.
The device really seems very "cool", compared to other prosthetics, and seems to allow the patients a wide variety of day-to-day activities. Also check out the patient gallery."
