Laiken Olive- who was born without a right hand- becomes the first person in the USA to receive the "Venom Snake" bionic arm based on the game Metal Gear Solid and designed by Open Bionics.
Has to be one expensive arm I wonder if it would be worth a lot of cash if it came up for sale and a hard core Metal Gear fan was willing to buy it to collect.
I don't think it'll be coming up for sale, it's literally this person's hand now, I doubt their in a hurry to sell what is basically their limb 😂 If the makers have the rights to the design they could always make a "consumer" version I suppose to make some extra money.
I wonder how many hardcore fans would be willing to lose a arm to get one and use it?
I basically live and breath MGS, but I think purposefully disfiguring yourself might be a bit much lol.
@Welshy, you're not a true fan then! jk ;)
Thats when youve gone from hardcore to extremism
Would think a one of a kind prosthetic arm that "just" turned up on ebay would be easy to trace.
I'd go out on a limb and bet my right arm that she isnt selling hers.
Wow this is wholesome
I would give an arm and a leg for that...
Be careful what you wish for. Nothing can replace the real thing.
im sure that wasnt cheap
Good for her. At least she can have a bionic arm in style and an Iconic one at that!
You never let me down N4G
Flat Earthers vs Hollow earthers What’s worse?
That's cool! But, most importantly, can she install upgrades for it, like Stun or Rocket Arm or Hand of Jehuty? /s
This is really cool.
You've got to hand it to her
I wonder if her soul will remain in the arm like with Liquid and Ocelot.
Konami loves one arm bandits ;p
Hey, if you need a bionic arm, may as well get one with style. That is pretty lit though.
Let the legend come back to life.
Good for them.
Amazing, this is really wholesome! But isn't obvious that the first person to receive a bionic arm had to be an amputee? Or is this bionic arm a collectors thing that some rich asshole can get and put on a glass case instead?
