Prosthetic Upper Limb and a Ball Cap at ITCN Asia 2008

A previous blog on Bionic Arms, Ministry of IT and Telecom at ITCN Asia 2008, I referred to the wrong university research project (SSUET's). Please enjoy the following video from NUST students!

The hand was actually designed for limb amputees and did not require an actual hand to imitate, it in fact was an attachment for people who have lost their hands. A connection is setup between a ballcap on the head and the prosthetic so that the movement of the head determines the movement of the prosthetic. Another video with more information is at Ali Imtiaz is the person you can contact. He is in my Facebook network of friends.
