The world's first bionic hand called ProDigits has been developed by a British company called Touch Bionics, a company that has been on the forefront of bionic technology. Check this out:





That's pretty amazing. All of these leaps in robotic and bionic technology are pretty amazing. They've been perfecting robot legs and balance for years now.

I'm sure there will be walking/talking dolls in no time.
