There have been quite a few different pieces of robotic technology released in the past month that are nothing short of astounding. Unlike those projects that have centered on transportation and workplace applications, Open Bionics is looking to put their advanced technology to work doing good with their Hero Arm Bionic Prosthesis. Obviously it’s not a robot in a traditional sense, but the technology is so advanced it kind of seems like that. The Hero arm is the “world’s first medically certified 3D-printed bionic arm, with multi-grip functionality and empowering aesthetics.” It’s equipped with haptic vibrations, beepers, buttons and lights for notifications, along with special sensors that detect muscle movements, which means the user can effortlessly control the bionic hand with intuitive, life-like precision. The end result is one of the most life-like and functional prosthetics we’ve ever seen. As the British company likes to say, “Welcome to the future, where disabilities are superpowers.”

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
