Watch the video.....I am still trying to figure out why these devices were never utilized earlier

Thanks, 12 Monkeys. A great example of an innovator, using his own skill and knowledge that's accumulated in the intervening years.

I love the idea of improving mechanical systems in an era where electronics get most of the attention. Practical, real-life "steampunk" devices like this prosthetic can make an enormous difference in an individual's life.
Live a good life... If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.
