Time magazine features Ukrainian bionic hand prosthesis among world’s best inventions

The Ukrainian maker of a next-gen hand prosthesis is making the cover of Time magazine, which has featured it this year among “200 innovations changing how we live.”

With its five separate movable fingers, this lightweight prosthesis combines low-power electronics and light movable machinery design to articulate 288 metal, plastic or silicon components.

But not only that: this artificial hand is a self-learning device that “accurately detects muscle activity, recognizes situations and predicts the grip that would fit a particular context.”

“The more you use it, the faster and more precise it gets, and the more it feels like you were born with it,” explains Esper Bionics on its website.
