Woman Throws And Catches Ball With Bionic Hand For First Time

January 10, 2018


This is a short video of Paralympian swimmer Kate Grey throwing and catching a Koosh ball with the 3-D printed bionic hand from Open Bionics that she put on for the first time just moments before. Kate lost her left hand to a sausage machine when she was two, which is exactly why sausage factories shouldn't hire two-year olds. Regardless, nice hand, Kate, it appears to be working even better than my hands, which have been giving me trouble lately. Sometimes I wish I had tentacles instead. Does anybody else wish that? "No." At least not that you're willing to admit. "No, like actually no." Go ahead -- you can whisper the real answer in my ear. "Noooooo." That tickled! Now do it again except with a yes so I know you're not a filthy liar.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Arleneta, who agrees you should never arm wrestle somebody with a bionic hand unless you want to have to get your own bionic hand afterwards.

    I just hope when she had that accident at age two, they went ahead and ate the sausage made from it. Human toddler meat is hard to come by these days.

    Catching a ball is not what appr. half the end-user base will be worried about. Can it jack off?

  • Jenness

    Not without snapping it off yet. The clinical trials have been a real blood bath.

    Only a couple more years now, before we make appendages that are clear upgrades to these fleshy meat wigglers!

    *gets hacksaw ready*

    It'd be funny if she wore her wedding ring on her bionic finger!!!=) And it'd be funny if her fingers broke up while masturbating -- I'd watch videos of it!=)

    Irina: Let's do grilled cheese sandwiches soon!=)

    GW, I think I rather have a tiger claw or a monkey tail for a arm

  • The_Wretched

    How about an octopus arm?

  • PUNX

    No , I imagine it would be slimy all the time or you would have to keep it moist so it don't get all dried up and crusty.

    Also I wonder if her hand made some good sausages.

  • Jenness

    Agreed! This is an awesome use of technology for the betterment of mankind. <3
