Boston Globe reporter Scott Kirsner got a chance to go behind the scenes with DARPA's much publicized robotic arm
, designed by a team led by Dean Kamen. The video includes an interview with Dean, along with some footage of the arm itself, including a symbolic handshake between the reporter and humanity's future destroyer (or if not, the ancestor of humanity's future destroyer.) Anyway, the video offers some interesting insight into the development of what could eventually be a truly bionic arm
: check it out after the break.
