Starwars being caught up?

In the second Star Wars movie (V) Luke receives a new hand after an encounter with Vader. It looked really cool and we all recognised it as the sci-fi it was.. however a sweedish guy has now received a hand pretty much like that. He can control it, and it can mediate sensation back to him through sensors. In a short set of years the first cyborg experiments by Kevin Warwick is now turning into a very promising area of cybernetics that can help us become more like we want to be. The next step will be someone actually exchanging a fully functionally limb with a (better) mechanical one… wonder how long before that happens. See more about this story in the video below.
