Advanced bionic limbs make life easier for amputees but they are not affordable and accessible to everyone. Students at the University of Manchester have designed and built a 3D printed robotic hand for just £307, which is much cheaper than almost any prosthetic limb available on the market.

The hand’s joints are fully posable, so users can move each individual finger and make a fist. They can grab and pick items, type, click a mouse, and perform other daily tasks. Has a lot of potential, don’t you think?
