PBS reports on the state of bionic limb development


The field of study that creates bionic limbs has been making great strides lately. So much striding, in fact, that it can be hard to keep track of everything. Of course, that is why we are here. But for that rare occasion you’d rather watch one of those new-fangled moving pictures instead of reading there’s PBS. The channel has just released a very informative documentary on the state of the industry.

The docu, linked here, interviews many luminaries in the field, including Dean Kamen and a number of other inventors. It’s an illuminating 11 minutes and, come on, we both know you weren’t doing anything that great to begin with.

The full transcript can be found here if you don’t feel like watching.
