Touch Bionics in Wired Magazine's Top 50 Best Ever Robots

TouchBionics' i-LIMB™ system has achieved number 13 in Wired magazine's list of 'The 50 Best Robots Ever'. It was featured under its original name of Edinburgh Modular Arm System, and the magazine explained how pressure sensors in the shoulder attachment detect minute fluctuations in muscles, activating motors that control the arms's movements.

The magazine ends the description with the words "Eat your heart out, Lee Majors" a reference to Hollywood's own bionic man.

TouchBionics' i-LIMB system came ahead of famous robots such as R2-D2 and The Terminator.
