Metalworker Is Amazed By His New 'Terminator' Arm

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Geoffrey Ingersoll
 With the U.S. Military reporting a record number of amputations, researchers around the globe are working frantically to find the best way to fill the void left behind.

In a video posted today to the website ProChan, we can all see exactly what kind of answers these researchers have landed.

From the site's post:

Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminium and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel's muscle twitches.

Ackland lost his arm six years ago to an accident at a metal smelting plant. He has since returned to work in order to support his family, but struggled with only the use of his left hand and a hook where his right ahd been.

As you can see now, he's been restored to some level of normalcy. Ackland says it's not only helped him on the job, but it's improved his morale as well.
