A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease on life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fiber mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminum and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel’s muscle twitches.

Watch the Real-Life Terminator Hand Tie Shoes, Deal Cards, and Improve This Man's Life

Real life cybernetic hand ties shoes, deals cards, and improve this man’s life.

"The bebionic3 is a myoelectric robotic arm that can function in a lot of the same ways a natural hand can do. In the above video, Nigel Ackland demonstrates his bebionic hand which he received after a work accident claimed his hand. The robotic limb is capable of 14 different positions which give its owner a wide range of functions."

At Singularity Summit Europe 2014 I met Nigel Ackland who had on of the most inspiring talks that day. He told about how his bionic arm helped him. He takes advantage of the many grip patterns the hand offers and can now do everyday tasks two-handed like driving, typing, shopping and washing his hands.

In 2007, Touch Bionics launched the i-LIMB Hand, the first powered prosthetic hand to incorporate articulating fingers. It has five independently powered digits that open and close around objects in a more natural and anatomically correct way than any previous hand prosthesis. The i-LIMB Hand helped amputees across the world to improve their everyday lives with the increased function offered by its articulating digits.
