The bebionic3 Robotic Artificial Hand

Get acquainted with the amazing new bebionic3 myoelectric robotic hand. The UK company was showing off a new version of the company’s bebionic prosthetic hand at the recent ORTHOPÄDIE + REHA-TECHNIK World Congress & Trade Show in Leipzig, Germany.


(bebionic robotic hand)

With a lifelike, anatomical design, the bebionic hand is the world’s most advanced, multi-articulating myoelectric hand. The prosthetic hands feature naturally compliant fingers and thumb and a wide variety of grip patterns for versatility and unrivaled performance.

bebionic has been designed to allow each user to perform everyday tasks confidently and consistently. Featuring grip patterns not available in any other prosthetic hand, including mouse grip, to control a computer mouse, and trigger grip, to operate a house hold spray, bebionic hands are durable, reliable and easy to use.

The way everyone was passing around the bebionic3 artificial hand in the video, I started thinking about the interchangeable hands from Philip K. Dick's 1965 novel The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch

From the ship stepped Palmer Eldritch.

...his right arm was artificial. Twenty years ago in a hunting accident on Callisto he had lost the original; this one was of course superior in that it provided a specialized variety of interchangeable hands. At the moment Eldritch made use of the five-finger humanoid manual extremity; except for its metallic shine it might have been organic.
