Amputee Gamer Gets Bionic Arm That Has Its Own Drone!
When video games and real world collide, it's not the first time something like this has happened but it's clear games do play an important role in helping people with disabilities reclaim use of their limbs.
One such case is James Young who suffered a tragic accident in 2012 when he was trapped under a London train and had to have his left foot server and one arm amputated to save his life. Being the gamer himself he decided to design a replacement arm (with plenty of tech to boot) on Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid V in partnership with Konami.
The arm is said to be worth at least $90,000 so not quite something everyone will be able to go for, however it does feature a drone, a phone charger, a smartwatch, lights and is completely removable.

It does look pretty amazing though and let's be honest, everyone wants a drone!
