The following submission statement was provided by /u/fleker2: — Biotech is probably the closest flair for this Ability Hand, a lighter weight prosthetic hand. Unlike other hands, which may just let one grip items, this one generates small vibrations based on pressure sensors. This allows the person to feel a sensation similar to real touch. For the wearer, it should give them a greater capability to pick up items. — Please reply to OP’s comment here: /r/Futurology/comments/r1c65k/bionic_hand_gives_amputees_sense_of_touch/hlxmkm6/

This is so great. One day, bionics will make physical disabilities a thing of the past. This is the sort of thing I subscribe to this sub for.
