The man with a bionic arm who might be the future of prosthetic research

June 19, 2016

If James Young looks like a man to you that resembles Solid Snake from The Phantom Pain, you're not too far off in that respect. James is the victim of a freak train accident that took his left arm. The answer to losing his much needed arm came in the form of what turned him into part cyborg.

A prosthetic limb that does more than just return much of his formal functionality to him. This puppy has a built in phone charger, torch, and even a drone. James had become something of an experiment to say the least, one that would alter his life forever, and show him what modern technology can really do.

James, who is also a video game player like you and I, had saw an advertisement sent out by Konami who were looking for an amputee interested in road testing a futuristic prosthetic limb. Futuristic is right, as you can see from the photos below.

The first thing that comes to your mind, might be the limb Snake uses for the loss of his limb, or visions of the movie Terminator might come to mind. Either way, you can bet that this is no ordinary limb, but one that just might send you into a realm of envy.

"I didn't want to look like Terminator, because my job involves talking to doctors about the drugs they use. I didn't want to look as if I'm to kill someone." Says James, who had no idea what was in store for him before the limb was fitted to his body.

What do you get when you combine ground breaking robotics, which connects to your own nerves and shoulder muscles? A real life site for soar eyes, and one that has James all the attention he can handle, as his story has gone completely viral, including being sent out by Konami themselves and fans alike.

Along with some great photos share here, you'll also find a 9 minute video below showcasing his story, and now technology has gotten so far now that this could very well be the future of helping those who suffer from similar disabilities. The more, the merrier I say.
