That looks handy.

Yeah, the Real Doll people are already on the phone with that guy.

But why do they huff and puff so?

The filter would've caught "hydrolic"?  Seems like spellcheck didn't.

Are we sure we want to make them that strong? What happens if one gains sentience and decides it doesn't really like the type of thing you are suggesting it do?

The weight of the arm is approximately the same as that of a biological one, which is good.  I'm not so sure about the power use, though.  200W seems like a lot, but really that's relative to what you're doing... still, I'd be tempted to scale it back and have a weaker arm with lower power requirements (and hopefully even less mass).

I think the joint position sensors might be overkill - generally you can tell where the parts are by comparing a model of the limb to current muscle exertion, and for variances due to loading... well, eventually you're going to want some tactile sensors and you can figure out if something's pulled off normal alignment and by how much by paying attention to those.  Better to spend your complexity and mass budget on those tactile sensors instead of joint position sensors, in my opinion.

Congratulations! We should all give that inventor a hand.

Switch to myomer fibre and you can carry a Gauss rifle and maybe some medium pulse lasers.

Have these people never watch TV and/or movies.  There is no way that this will end well for humanity.

Only a matter of time I suppose.

I spent years studying anatomy for art reasons and I have farked up connective tissue so I'm getting a kick etc.

Interesting anatomical similarities so far, especially the action of the radius. That does a lot to look more natural. I can see some issues with the shapes of the cords in this current model causing wear and being subject to repeated impact damage. It's only a prototype though.

It's that problem with wholly mechanical anything having weaknesses that human bodies, which constantly self-repair, do not. You'll always have to think about a replacement limb differently, same reason as a limb that has something causing inadequate feedback but without the benefit of automated self-repair for things like calluses, bruises, scrapes, and cuts. That kind of training around the differences is different for everyone because everyone's nervous system and body are different.

Still neat, though.

Evolution has resulted in some things human science and engineering have failed to equal as yet... So I love it when we get closer to making a copy.

I figure once we can replicate nature, that's when can start trying to improve on it.

And what we desperately need right now is a two-way nerve interface so prosthetics can be controlled and provide feedback like a natural limb.

Aw gee.

I was hoping for a happy ending.
