Dean Kamen Luke Arm

Dean Kamen, an inventor and tech enthusiast, was on The Colbert Report last night to show off his latest invention: a super cool robotic arm.

The Luke Arm (a Star Wars reference, of course) is from DEKA Labs, and stands be one of the most advanced prosthetic devices ever created. DARPA is helping fund the project, in part to find a great replacement limb for soldiers that lose theirs in the conflict overseas. I love when technology serves a great purpose, and this is pretty high up there on the “useful” list.
