‘Intuitive hand’ discovery can spark a new generation of prosthetic limbs

This technology was developed at Newcastle University and has been trialled by a small number of amputees. This hand "sees" objects and in a second decides what kind of grip to adopt. This is the unique bionic hand, developed by scientists
