An 11-minute PBS News Hour video demonstrates several bionics projects that use state-of-the-art robotics technologies to create artificial body parts capable of assisting people with disabilities, suggests DeviceGuru.

This includes a robotic exoskeleton called eLegs, an artificial arm called Luke, and glasses that provide “bionic eyesight.”
