Beyond bionics: how the future of prosthetics is redefining humanity

Bionic technology is removing physical barriers faced by disabled people while raising profound questions of what it is to be human. From DIY prosthetics realised through 3D printing technology to customised AI-driven limbs, science is at the forefront of many life-enhancing innovations

  1. I'm working on a 3d printed articulating thumb prosthetic as an augmentation in my high school engineering class that is wireless, Let's just say one that is affordable to others, I want to to be able to be used as an augmentation and or a prosthetic as my senior project does anyone have any advice for people I can contact to get advice from for this?

  2. This is such cool stuff! I’m doing research for a story I’m working on… The main character looses his right hand and I’m trying to make a realistic (at least for the world, cause it’s a magical realism world) prosthetic for him. He is not the best at magic, but he learns how to control objects and stuff, and eventually makes himself a prosthetic to be able to play guitar again. This is definitely sub-plot to the main story, but I need to do it justice out of respect for all the non-fictional amputees out there 🙂
