Deus Ex Bionic Arms

The first actual ‘robotic arm’ was produced way back in the 1960s by a man named George Devol. It wasn’t the kind you’d see Luke Skywalker using, but it worked well enough to be picked up by General Motors and incorporated into their manufacturing line. Now, years later, robotic prosthesis are becoming more and more common, but they remain prohibitively expensive for many. Just recently, Open Bionics and the design team behind Deus Ex have teamed up to develop an attractive but affordable bionic arm modeled after the game’s main character, Adam Jensen.

The robotics and medical firm based out of Bristol, England, are no strangers to collaborating with film makers and comic book publishers – not too long ago they released both Iron Man and Star Wars bionic hands for young children. These new prostheses, however, seem a bit more ambitious. These new designs incorporate the Square Enix game’s high-design mentality into almost all aspects of their build. As if this all wasn’t cool enough, the blueprints of the arm will be open-source, meaning that they will be available for anyone to print themselves and use. The team hopes to have this technology available within the next year, but no specific release date has been unveiled.
