Sci-Fact: 15 Year Old Girl Gets Bionic Hand

Every day that passes is another day I become less and less fearful of losing my hand in a lightsaber duel. It’s videos like the one below that are the reason we opted to do these little sci-fact posts here at SFM. Humanity often takes for granted how far we’ve actually evolved, and little leaps like this remind us how far we’ve come between closing the gap between fiction and reality.

While it’s not quite up to par with Luke’s hand at the end of Empire, it’s pretty damn cool, and will change this girl’s life for the better.
