We can now add Luke Skywalker's hand to the list of achieved sci-fi technology.

At this rate we'll get lightsabers before the hoverboard.

That's pretty awesome. But they might be jumping the gun a bit. We still need bionic hands that can move naturally and not like animatronic Disney ride characters. Though I guess maybe a sense of touch might help that rather than trying to move a unfeeling limb.

You don't want the sensory ability to be TOO good. You'll lose the abilty to give yourself "the stranger".

The graphics in the Six Million Dollar Man opening that show his bionic schematics listed "neuro feedback terminated" among the specs, suggesting that these science fiction writers thought that maybe top secret, black budget prosthetics could be nuclear powered, provide superhuman strength and speed, and look so natural nobody could detect them without a geiger counter - but a sense of touch? Come on, nobody would believe that.

What ever happened to Dean Kamen's "Luke Hand" that he was working on with DARPA?

Did that vapourware? They were reporting on it like 6 years ago and it looked pretty promising then.

Skateboarding became big after the drought of 1976 in California after all the pools were drained. Maybe the big drought this year will spur on the development of the hoverboard. We still have a year and a half left.

Now nurse, certain things have to be bared for science to proceed.
