A videogamer says his life has been changed now he has started wearing the First prosthetic limb based on a videogame.
Daniel Melville (UK) owns and wears a copy of the arm worn by Adam Jensen in Deus Ex, Square Enix's cyberpunk RPGs videogame series set in a futuristic era of transhumanist body upgrades.
Conceived in April 2015 and completed on 1 June 2016, the "Jensen arm" has been created by the UK company Open Bionics and is a 3D-printed limb which took one month to go from rendering to being made wearable.
Having worn the arm to several major gaming events, Daniel said: "I've shown people it's not a cosplay piece but something functional that I use in my real life. It's been life-changing."
The Jensen arm is featured in the new Guinness World Records 2018 Gamer's Edition, alongside an exclusive Q&A with Open Bionics co-founder Samantha Payne.
"When the Deus Ex team first started designing Human Revolution in 2007, they didn't think bionic prosthetics would look or function that way until 2026 – but they've got one earlier!" said Samantha.
