Amputee Gamer The Most Epic Prosthetic Arm You'll Ever See

Amputee Gamer The Most Epic Prosthetic Arm You'll Ever See

Say hell to James, an avid gamer and amputee who tragically lost his limbs in a terrible train accident three years ago. Gaming company Konami (the creator of the wildly popular Metal Gear Solid franchise) is helping James to engineer a bionic arm based on character Snake from Metal Gear Solid games.

The amazing prosthetic comes loaded with all manner of awesome gadgets, from USB ports for charging, a smartwatch, numerous lights and even a flying drone (seriously!) that's mounted onto the top of the shoulder.

James controls the arm using various muscle signals. Not only can he shake your hand, he can even pick up coins which is a fairly complex task all things considered. The arm has unquestionably changed his life, and it could change the lives of others.

It cost roughly $120,000 to make with the same level of customization. The benefits though?

Simply priceless.
