New bionic hand that processes signals from the muscles using a smartphone, cost its creators about $300. The Japanese company unveiled its Exiii development at the festival South by Southwest in Austin. His work guys showed how 3D-printing technology reduces the cost of the process of creating prostheses.

Like other myoelectric prostheses, Handiii uses signals generated by the remaining part of the limb muscles. However, its developers were able to solve some of the problems inherent in such devices.

Typically, the cost of artificial parts of the body is thousands of dollars. Furthermore, in many bionic prostheses used recessed expensive signal processing system. Handiii, in turn, relies on the usual smartphone and application software companion.

The main thing – to optimize the function of the prosthesis, reduce cost and provide a stylish design – leads words IBTimes developers.

3D-printing technology allows you to quickly change the broken parts and customize Handiii on their own. Now the device is only available to businesses that are allowed to use it for research purposes only. When bionic arm will be available to the public, not reported.

Retail price for Handiii also not been established. According Exiii, in the above-mentioned amount includes only the cost of electronics and consumables for 3D-printer. It is obvious that the finished commercial product will cost more than $300.
