Bionic Hand with Camera Sees Objects

Here is a bionic hand with artificial vision that can see objects and adapt accordingly, allowing users to grasp and pick up objects of various shapes and sizes. Developed by researchers at Newcastle University, this prosthetic hand can perform 4 different grasps:

palm wrist neutral (such as when you pick up a cup); palm wrist pronated (such as picking up the TV remote); tripod (thumb and two fingers) and pinch (thumb and first finger).

This smart bionic hand allows the wearer to reach for objects automatically without even thinking.
