Modular Prosthetic Limb by APL (YouTube)

Shared by a friend of mine over a social network, this amazing video displays the work of APL (The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory).

Under the sponsorship of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), APL created this Modular Prosthetic Limb. The video displays some of the capabilities of the limb. Around 4:30 minutes in, the video showcases object manipulation.
