 Bionic Hand Unveiled by British Scientists
A bionic hand with fingers that move and react independently has been developed by British scientists.

A first of its kind, the cutting-edge ProDigits provides a lifelike replacement for full or partial hand amputees.

Brainchild of Touch Bionics, based in Livingston, Scotland, the Terminator-style prosthetic is on show at a medical expo in Leipzig, Germany, reports The Sun.

The revolutionary device's movements can even be fine-tuned by computer using Bluetooth technology.

The fingers move by interpreting muscle signals from what remains of the hand or stump.
