3D printed Youbionic prosthetic hand can now be pre-ordered for $1,355

Youbionic prosthetic hand

The electronically controlled Youbionic hand has been in development for quite some time now, and now it is ready for commercial use. This 3D printed robotic hand is actuated with muscle movement and works quite well for people having a missing hand. Not only that, the prosthetic hand is ideal for people having some loss in motor function, and also for people who want an increased physical capability. However, I fail to understand why a person having no limb disability would go for this bionic hand.

My Hand – A bionic hand that feels like a real limb

My Hand Bionic hand by Institute of Biorobotics

Scientists at the Institute of Biorobotics in Pisa, Italy headed by Christian Cipriani have developed a bionic hand that they call My Hand in short. Myoelectric-Hand Prosthesis project is aimed at making an artificial limb that looks very close to a real hand with the option of choosing skin tone and also functions like one. The brain-controlled prosthetic hand is made from silicon-coated exoskeleton that is supported by thin titanium sheets that weight somewhere around 7 ounces, making it a light-weight artificial hand. This project has huge potential and is funded by Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) for € 400,000.
