Anyone remember the theNXTStep's blog posting back in Sept' 07 about Dean Kamen's Robotic Arm project?

IEEE Spectrum has recently posted an new video which shows the latest progress in this effort.

That's totally awesome... now all we need to do is to top Kamen's great job and build it with an NXT!
BTW didn't this guy found FIRST? I think I recognize him.

The arm is phenomenal. They claim a test subject can be proficient in it's use in 5 to 10 hours.

And it's about to hit clinical trials... :)
