Bionics

Misty Knight’s bionic right arm possesses superhuman strength, which she can use in a vise-like grip; however, since the rest of her body has not been bionically altered, she cannot use her strength to lift heavier weights than she could with normal human strength.

Samantha Payne’s startup Open Bionics allows anyone in the world to download and 3D print their own bionic limbs. 

Tilly was just 15 months old when she had to have her hand amputated after contracting meningitis septicaemia. Now, with a bionic arm from Open Bionics, Tilly can move all of her fingers and perform more complex movements. EMG sensors on her arm detect muscle movement, telling her bionic arm how quickly or firmly to squeeze its fingers.
