The project has been created by Sophie De Oliveira Barata, founder of the Alternative Limb Project and the video game studio Konami. The design and features of the limb are heavily related to the Metal Gear Solid game franchise, and the limb even featured in the most recent episode of the show.

 

The high-tech limb has state of the art sensors that can be used to detect movements in Young’s shoulder muscles and gives him complete control over the battery-powered hand and arm. But it doesn’t end there. The arm also has an added laser light, a built-in flashlight for navigation in the dark, a USB port to charge his smartphone, and even a small drone that is stored in the shoulder; more or less like a pirate’s parrot!

The prosthetic limb and arm still needs a lot of improvement though. For example, they are not water proof, neither shock proof. So Young has to it off when he goes to shower or has to sleep. They also weigh 4.7 kg (10 lbs), which is not very easy to carry around. Young is also unable to wear his leg prosthesis for extended periods due to the pain it causes, and for now, continues to use a wheelchair for his day-to-day activities.

We wish Young very best for the future, and may his dream of becoming a cyborg come true soon!
