What you see here is the Hero Arm 3D-printed Bionic Arm. It should really be called superhero bionic arm because, it is here to enable freedom for below arm amputees.

Billed as the world’s first medically certified 3D-printed bionic arm, it boasts sensors that enable user to manipulate the hand while haptic feedback, beeps, buttons and lights offer intuitive notifications.
