So, what kind of attachments does it come with?

Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A DAMMIT.

Wow, the mobile site split that article into 4 pages.

/bionic woman?

I'm stumped.

As a friend of hers from the Carrollton bar scene, I was happy to hear this news. I haven't seen her since before the accident but it's good to hear she's recovered well and is getting on with her life!

We don't have a code for a man's penis stuck in a robot hand.

I bet they do now. "We got a Walowitz in intake".

If the machinery ever fails in flagrante delicto, and it stays locked grasping the male member, that would be an ER visit for the ages.

She seems to be taking this adjustment well.  I don't think I could be as open and optimistic.  I know there really isn't another option, but I know myself too well....I'd probably try to end it.  Now thinking about it, without any hands that would probably be a nearly impossible.

But doc, will she be able to play the violin???
 
2013-05-17 10:03:05 PM  
I feel kinda bad that I forgot her name and was all "WTF WHO IS THIS PERSONohjesustheflesheatingbacteriagirl"
 
2013-05-17 10:03:28 PM  
This pairs well with the other article about a day in the life of a hand.

Good headline but a lack of Sarah Connor reference further heightens my suspicion that the modmins have been replaced by pod-people.

Groovy.

I thought it was this scene at about 0:20, but the keyboard is wrong.

In the sink, Cyril. In the sink. It was like a transistor radio and a veal cutlet had a baby.

Each hand costs $100K.  I wonder what the installation and shop materials charges are.

Aimee Copeland has been fitted with bionic hands. Boyfriend reportedly optimistic but also very, very scared

Who?  Did she get the slatted chair attachment or something??
 
2013-05-17 10:23:02 PM  
Can we upload the plans to the internet so I can print off a few copies?
 
2013-05-17 10:28:50 PM  
Sooo.... she has to grasp the iPhone in order to make her hands take one of 24 different configurations?

No worries, they will make the handjobs better. Stronger. Faster.

When three of your extremities you have lost, look as good you will not.

Not much of an imagination, eh?

Four. 2 hands, a leg and a foot off of the other leg. I figure that she probably ate to overcome depression. Plus lets face it, her dating options are now in the general category of "Guys who will probably want me to stumpfark them in the ass at some point" so why worry about getting fat.

It was all 4 wasn't it? a leg, a foot, and both hands. Kinda hard to exercise.

Can we skip the fondling and handjob and go right to oral tonight, sweetums?
 
2013-05-17 10:49:26 PM  
Four months in the hospital plus PT, therapy and bionic hands? Steve Austin was less expensive.

/still, glad she's getting better

I think it's from later on when the car chase starts and the three assistants have the same augmentation.

I mean, uh, you watch anime? Grow up.

Is it just me, or do they have an entire article about these hands without once saying how they're controlled?  They're configured  using an Ipad, but are they controlled by it (AKA by a third party) or does she control them herself somehow?  Isn't that pretty much the most important part?  How do they not include that?

/google informs that they're controlled by her muscles (cool)
//article fails

It's just you.  The entire article was not about the hands.

This. She seems to be doing quite well, all things considered. Nobody should expect her to be trying out for the Paralympics just yet.

/I'd be more worried if she were skinny.

She's probably on a bunch of steroids/meds also..that will add lots of weight to you.

She looks great for what she's been through. I'm sure they'll develop some exercise program for her down the road...probably swimming.
