We did take a look at the Bebionic 3 bionic hand not too long ago, and here we are with yet another video of what the future of prosthetic limbs could possibly resemble. Here is a little primer for those who are a wee bit late to the game – the Bebionic 3 functions as a myoelectric prosthetic hand, where it will rely on residual neuro-muscular signals that are fired from your muscles in order to operate a number of precise functions. Needless to say, seeing this hand in action does remind us of Anakin Skywalker’s bionic arm after Count Dooku gave him a lesson in lightsaber duels.

As for the Bebionic 3, it might not be able to help you channel the Force in one of the myriad of ways that only a Jedi (or Sith) knows how to, but at the very least it is pretty handy (pardon the pun) when it comes to holding a writing instrument, handling something as delicate as an egg with the correct pressure, or even hold glasses and bottles without breaking them. Nigel Ackland demonstrated the Bebionic3 prosthetic hand as shown in the video above.
