This story has been lighting up the Internet like, hotcakes or whatever, but it's still difficult to find any solid information on the device. Made by Dean Kamen of Segway fame, this artificial arm is capable of delicate tasks such as picking scratching one's nose or grabbing a pen.

What most are assuming is that there is some sort of neurological interface, but I'm doubting that's the case. We do know that it was developed for military amputees and that people were literally crying in the audience during its premier. If you have more info on the device, do us a favor and share it in the comments. Until then, I'm assuming that this video is of the new Terminator that must be destroyed at all costs.
