Deus Ex's Augmented Prosthetics Are One Step Closer To Being Real

Human augmentation and modification is a huge part of the Deus Ex series' story, and now a line of bionic arms based on the game is being produced. Open Bionics is a company that focuses on producing affordable prosthetics and has partnered with Deus Ex, Razer and Intel to make Adam Jensen's arm a reality.

The line of Deus Ex models isn't quite ready for the market yet, but in a newly released video, we can see the progress that is being made on these working bionic arms. The products are made using 3D printers and feature neural sensors that move individual fingers and allow a user to close or open the fist. Check out these arms in action below.

These high-quality arms are designed to be fashionable and affordable, and it will be interesting to see what their final iteration looks like. Two Deus Ex versions, one of which is a direct recreation of Adam Jensen's arm, are planned. All of the resources used by Open Bionics to print the arms is open source, meaning any one can download and reproduce the arms, provided they have their own 3D printer.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided releases on August 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. For more on the game's universe and story, check out our recent hands-on impressions, and a link to our cover story hub below.
