What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

Bionic Woman

Bionic Woman

26-year old Claudia Mitchell has become the first woman to get outfitted with a bionic arm, with which she’s able to perform functions simply by thinking about them. The arm was designed by researchers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and works by detecting the movement’s of Mitchell’s chest muscle, which has been rewired to the nerves that once served her left arm. Eventually, researchers say, the arm could even give Mitchell the sense of touch, with electrodes in the hand sending signals to her chest skin, which her brain would recognize as a sensation.

  3. Milestone for unique Bionic Hand
    A highly functional bionic hand which was invented by a Scottish NHS worker has gone on the market.

    The thumb and fingers can move and grip just like a human hand and are controlled by the patient’s mind and muscles.

    Horrifying and hideous but the best you can do is the best you can do.

    imagine getting a handjob from her and all of a sudden she starts thinking about squeezing a lemon…

  6. Me

    Shandooga, HappyPanda – you’re morons. Especially pandaboy.

  7. this is amazing. super amazing, i seen this in a cartoon, humans using mechanical arms, so its cool to see it in real life. and dummby Happy Panda, get a hand job from her natural hand, or just skip to oral.

    Shandooga, it does look unnatral, with patience i’m sure they can devlop a more natural look.

    KEEP GOING!

    God I hate america.

    This young woman is a former United States Marine like myself, and a friend of mine. The technology is awesome, but it also took a lot of courage to be the human test subject for this project. Her efforts should help countless individuals in the future.

  10. lemon

    I’m sorry but the lemon comment was bloody hilarious.

  11. freshly-squeezed

    I agree…
    I don’t want my lemon squeezed either, but I bet that hand could go like a million miles an hour!
    She could give a H/J in under 3 seconds.

  12. lollerkeet

    I think it’s not easy to live with a bionic arm. I have a lot of respect fot this people.

  16. Well bionic arms are not about “looks” they are about functionality. Although I also have seen lots of anime with bionic arms like “Full Metal Alchemist” which awesome.

    I’m sure with the improvement to the arm by 2015, or so we should have arms that glide effortlessly with the simplest of thoughts and we would probably improve the look of it…something metallic maybe…with armor.

    Lol, If it does get to that point I’m going to have my arm severed and replaced with that one!
