Sometimes in order to achieve certain goals there is a need for businesses to join forces and this is what is happening here with the Augmented Future project! Open Bionics, Eidos-Montréal and Razer are working on Deus Ex inspired bionic hands. The goal is to produce a product that is both practical and affordable, which is a hard balance to find, but with the current technology, further research and 3D printing the possibilities of achieving this goal are not just a dream, it is a reality.
Open Bionics, Eidos-Montréal and Razer are working together to bring Deus Ex inspired augmentations to life. The three companies will partner up to help bridge the gap between fiction and reality, working together to design, 3D print, scan, power, and create affordable bionic hands. This “Augmented Future” initiative will combine the expertise of each company, with the ultimate goal being to make fashionable robotic prosthesis accessible to a larger audience.
There was time when this kind of technology would have been science fiction at first and then when it becomes available, the cost would be out of reach for the general population. But, the goal here is not only to produce these fully operational bionic limbs, but to make them affordable too and that is great goal to be working towards.
