the future of prosthetics

"The Immaculate" is a concept prosthetic arm by Norwegian design student Hans Huseklepp that I came across while doing style research on robotic arms for UMASS. I'm interested the integration of technology into the human spectrum and prosthetics seem to be the ultimate amalgamation of this. Huseklepp's concept works because it's able to jump the "uncanny valley" (aka: it's not creepy). Simple, elegant, and recognizable form factors that act as an extension of the human arm without trying to replicate it. Nice work.
