    With the U.S. Military reporting a record number of amputations, researchers around the globe are working frantically to find the best way to fill the void left behind.

    In a video posted today to the website ProChan, we can all see exactly what kind of answers these researchers have landed.

    From the site's post:

    Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminium and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel's muscle twitches.
