Sci-(Non)Fi: Titan Arm

November 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

The Titan Arm, designed and 3-D printed by a team from University of Pennsylvania, has won the 2013 Dyson Award for design and engineering.  From C-Net:

…the exoskeleton is intended to help rehabilitate people who’ve had serious arm injuries or strokes, and to give more power to the elbows of those who lift heavy objects for a living.

At least somebody plans to use their robot arm for good.
